June 7 Super Tuesday

At victory rally, Donald Trump makes play for Sanders supporters, promises new attacks on Clinton

On Tuesday, Donald Trump welcomed his victory in New Jersey and other wins on the way, telling a crowd of supporters, "we have some big numbers coming in." He declared that he had already made history, getting more votes than any Republican primary candidate ever, and promised, "We're only getting started, and it's going to be beautiful." Trump said that his victories are "a testament to all the people who believe that real change — not Obama change — is possible," and promised the Republican Party that he took his responsibility as its nominee seriously. "I will never, ever let you down."

Trump said he will work hard to earn the support of people who didn't vote for him, even Democrats. "To all of those Bernie Sanders supporters, who have been left out in the cold by a rigged system of superdelegates," he said, "we welcome you with open arms." As for Hillary Clinton, he painted her as part of a "rigged" political establishment that needs a big overhaul. Trump pledged that in the next week or so, he will give a "major speech" on "all the things that have been taking place with the Clintons," apparently focusing on the Clinton Foundation. "I think you'll find it very informative and very interesting," he told supporters, and probably the media.

"The last thing we need is Clinton in the White House or an extension of the Obama disaster," Trump said, then outlined what his "America First" policy means in terms of foreign policy, trade, and economic policy. Speaking at a Trump golf club in Westchester County, New York, Trump painted a dark picture of a broke, crumbling American, and promised to make everyone in America wealthy and employed, rebuild America's inner cities, approve only "great trade deals," and "make America great again."
