Former President Donald Trump is not in support of the Republican National Committee declaring him “the presumptive nominee.”

Amid reports that the RNC is looking into whether to label him the party’s “presumptive nominee” after his win in the Iowa and New Hampshire primaries, Trump asked the RNC to avoid doing so until he secures all the necessary votes.

In a post to Truth Social, Trump said that such a step would hurt party unity ahead of the general election.

He wrote, “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.”

“Thank you to the RNC for the Respect and Devotion you have shown me! TRUMP2024,” he concluded.

The RNC’s consideration comes as Trump’s last standing major opponent, former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley has refused to step down. If the resolution to formally declare Trump as the Republican Party’s presumptive nominee for the 2024 election is approved, the committee would support Trump, effectively opposing Haley.

While the GOP frontrunner’s delegate requirements do not change, he would not only have the support of all of the RNC member’s ground operations, but will also have access to the committee’s data operation and benefit from its fundraising.

RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel already joined growing calls for Haley to drop out of the race, as she does not see a path going forward for Haley in the elections.

In her words, “Looking at the math and the path going forward and I don’t see it for Nicki Haley. I think she ran a great campaign. The message from the voters is clear. We need to unite around our eventual nominee, which is going to be Donald Trump. We need to be sure we beat Joe Biden. It’s 10 months away until the November election. We can’t wait any longer to put our foot on the gas to beat the worst president who kept our borders opened and allowed fentanyl to pour through and allowed rampant inflation.”
