The billionaire has hardly any competition during these local assemblies, which are held in schools or gymnasiums – an electoral peculiarity of the American system.

“We're going to have a very big evening,” the former president told the press before heading to Nevada.

This western US state held a primary election on Tuesday, which Nikki Haley, Trump's only real rival, was unable to win.

Voters placed the majority of ballots marked “None of these candidates” in the ballot boxes, which is considered a virtual vote for Donald Trump, who did not participate in this election.

These primaries had no risks, because the Republican Party had decided for several months to maintain its caucuses, the only ballot that would allow it to gain delegates from Nevada who would vote at the June convention to choose the Republican nominee for the White House.

Ms. Haley is trailing well behind Mr. Trump in the nomination race and appears poised for another defeat in her home state of South Carolina at the end of the month.

But the former governor confirms that she will not give up.

“I'm in this for the long haul,” she repeated to her supporters on Wednesday, during a rally in California, according to The New York Times.

“It's going to be complicated, it's going to hurt, it's going to leave its mark, but in the end, I don't mind taking hits, if you'll follow me,” she insisted.

Trump, who has recently expressed annoyance at this insistence, stressed on Thursday that Ms. Haley's nomination did not bother him.

He added: “I don't know why it continues, but let's allow it to continue.” “I don't really care.”

“I think this is bad for the party,” he added.

The Nevada caucuses are scheduled to begin around 5:00 PM local time (01:00 GMT Friday). Results should appear after about two and a half hours.
