Donald Trump went on a Super Tuesday roll, winning six of the nine states where races were called before midnight. Then he took a victory lap.
Trump, addressing reporters at a news conference in Florida—instead of supporters as he typically does on election nights—painted himself as someone who was growing the Republican Party into a potent force that could defeat Clinton in November. He even sounded like a candidate looking toward the general election.
“We have expanded the Republican Party,” Trump said. “I am a unifier. Our party is expanding, and all you have to do is take a look at the primary states where I’ve won. … I think we’re going to be more inclusive. I think we’re going to be more unified.”
And he made clear he would hit Clinton hard on her use of a private email server if they meet in the general election.
“If she’s allowed to run, honestly it’ll be a sad day for this country because what she did was wrong,” Trump said. “Other people have done far less than her and they have paid a very, very big price.”
