Republicans officially nominated U.S. President Donald Trump for a second term on August 24. This is evidenced by the results of the vote at the party congress.
Trump won the required 1,276 delegates to the convention in a roll call vote, but the vote continues.
According to RIA Novosti, the vote is formal, as Trump has previously won all the Republican primaries.
Last week, former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden was confirmed by Democratic delegates. Trump believes that Biden can win the presidential election only by rigging them.
However, according to the latest polls, 50% of Americans are ready to vote for Biden, about 46% for Trump. Trump, too, believes they have almost equal chances in competing with Biden for president.
At the same time, Trump said that after Biden’s election victory, the United States would become a “boring socialist country.”
The U.S. presidential election is scheduled for November 3.
