SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO: Donald Trump emerged victorious in the Puerto Rico primary on Sunday, April 21, resulting in the acquisition of 23 additional delegates for the GOP convention, as per Decision Desk HQ

With no opposition, the ex-POTUS won the primary with ease. He will be formally named as the GOP nominee during the party convention in Milwaukee in July.

Donald Trump and Joe Biden likely to face off in a neck-and-neck rematch

As the sole contender left in the GOP primary race, Trump has 1,915 delegates. The Democratic primary in Puerto Rico is scheduled for April 28. 

The November election clash with President Joe Biden remains close, with Trump leading by just 0.9 percent points in the Decision Desk HQ average of 666 polls, according to The Hill.

Judge Juan Merchan scheduled Trump's criminal trial to begin on April 15, which would make it the first criminal prosecution of a former American president. Trump was charged with 34 counts of falsifying business records last year, which prosecutors say was an effort to hide a potential sex scandal, both before and after the 2016 election.

In Manhattan, Trump is presently undergoing his first criminal trial. He's being prosecuted on 34 felony counts of falsifying business records.

The ex-POTUS is accused of trying to conceal payments made to Karen McDougal and Stormy Daniels ahead of the 2016 presidential election to silence them over their alleged relationships with him.

Michael Cohen, Trump's former attorney, is said to have handled these payments, which came to a total of hundreds of thousands of dollars, as per CBS News

Though it wouldn't immediately bar him from running for office again, Trump's ability to challenge elections in the future would be impacted if he is found guilty of the accusations against him in the hush money trial.

Moreover, if found guilty on all counts, he could be sentenced to a minimum of four years in state prison or probation.

Internet mocks Donald Trump despite his win in the Puerto Rico primary

One joked, "Is he going to Disney world now?"

Another quipped, "Did he throw paper towels at them?" recalling the time Trump threw paper towels at people during a presidential trip to San Juan, two weeks after Hurricane Maria wreaked havoc on the island. 

A person mentioned, "They can’t vote in the general election." "Those people do know he hates them right? RIGHT?" questioned someone else. 

An individual remarked, "But I thought Trump said they aren't Americans, so as illegals, their votes don't count, right?" One more simply stated, "This is embarrassing."
