Trump takes step closer to securing third consecutive nomination for the Republican Party after key ballot.
Former United States President Donald Trump has won the Iowa caucuses, cementing his Republican frontrunner status as he bids to retake the White House in 2024.
Trump earned the widely-expected victory over former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, taking him a step closer to securing a third consecutive nomination for the GOP, projections by multiple US media outlets showed on Monday.
The margin of Trump’s victory was not immediately clear.
Iowans braved dangerously cold weather to gather at more than 1,600 schools, community centers and other sites in the first vote in the 2024 presidential race.
