Former President Donald Trump has expressed his preference for Republican leaders not to go to great lengths to secure him the nomination. Reports suggest that the Republican National Committee is contemplating a strategy to designate Trump as the likely nominee for the 2024 election. This consideration stems from his recent wins in Iowa and New Hampshire, as well as the challenges faced by his sole remaining competitor, former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley.

However, in a recent post on his Truth Social platform, Trump expressed his lack of enthusiasm for this idea.

"While I greatly appreciate the Republican National Committee (RNC) wanting to make me their PRESUMPTIVE NOMINEE, and while they have far more votes than necessary to do it, I feel, for the sake of PARTY UNITY, that they should NOT go forward with this plan, but that I should do it the 'Old Fashioned' way, and finish the process off AT THE BALLOT BOX," wrote Trump. "Thank you to the RNC for the Respect and Devotion you have shown me! TRUMP2024."

The upcoming primary contest where both Trump and Haley will appear on the same ballot is in South Carolina, which happens to be Haley's home state.

In recent days, Trump has intensified his criticism of Haley, who previously held the position of his U.N. ambassador. He has ridiculed Haley's Indian birth name and declared that anyone who contributes to her campaign is no longer welcome in the MAGA movement.
