Donald Trump has defeated all the rivals in the presidential race one more time, winning the Michigan, Mississippi and Hawaii caucuses.

Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders has unexpectedly defeated Hillary Clinton in Michigan, while Clinton has increased the number of her supporters due to her big victory in Mississippi.

Meanwhile, Republican candidate Ted Cruz won in Idaho.

For Marco Rubio, Republican Senator from Florida, the day was marked by a heavy defeat: he was left far behind the top rivals and turned out to be the fourth in Michigan and Mississippi. Next week, the voting will be held in his home state of Florida where he must win.

Nevertheless, Donald Trump, who has no experience in political struggle, is the leader of polls in Florida. On Tuesday, he made a speech there, marking his victory.

"What really pleases me is the fact that the turnout really was massive,” Trump said at a press conference. “I think it has been the only major record in politics up to now."

With these victories Donald Trump has strengthened his position as a leader among the potential Republican candidates. At the same time, he had to face the wave of criticism from those who are dissatisfied with his entrepreneurial skills, as well as the vernacular and too simple language he sometimes uses.

The main points of Trump’s campaign include deportation of 11 million illegal migrants and construction of a wall on the southern border of the country, which should be fully done at Mexico’s cost.

The primary elections and caucuses determine the group of the candidates, who could be nominated for the presidential elections. However, the party convention is responsible for deciding who of them will reach the last stage.

The convention will be held in July.
