Mr. Trump has won Virginia, Alabama, Georgia, Massachusetts and Tennessee as he now sets his sights on Florida.
Donald Trump the big winner on the republican side this Super Tuesday. He said now it is time for the party to work together and focus on November.
“I’m a unifier, I know people find that hard to believe, believe me I am a unifier. Once we get all of this finished, I’m going after one person, that’s Hillary on the assumptions she’s allowed to run. That’s a big assumption. I don’t know if she’ll be allowed to run,” he told a crowd at a news conference at the Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach.
While concentrating on Hillary Clinton, Trump had a few words for his fellow Republican candidates – especially Marco Rubio.
“I know it was a very tough night for Marco Rubio, he had a tough night. He worked hard. He spent a lot of money. He is a lightweight, like I’ve said many times before,” Trump said.
He then went on to say, “I want to congratulate Ted on the winning of Texas. He worked hard on it. I know how hard he worked, actually, and so I congratulate Ted Cruz on that win it was an excellent win.”

As expected – the border wall and how he’ll get Mexico to foot the bill.
“Mexico is going to pay for the wall. We have trade deficit with Mexico of $58 billion a year… $58 billion! The wall will cost 10 billion. It’s so easy,” he said.
He’s also promising bring jobs back to the U.S. and boost the military.
“We’re going to make our military bigger and better and stronger than ever booker and nobody, nobody nobody’s going to mess with us folks, nobody,” he said.
Trump’s Palm Beach press conference shows how pivotal Florida is.
The March 15th primary is the first winner takes all state – that’s 99 delegates at stake.
Rubio understood its importance as well, rallying in Tropical Park.
