Donald Trump’s Super Tuesday was a massive success, and of course he had to recognize his victory with a press conference. Introduced by former rival Chris Christie, Trump obviously had a lot to say. Click through for the details of his speech!
Donald Trump, 69, has taken a commanding lead in his quest for the Republican presidential nomination ahead of Florida Senator Marco Rubio, 44, and Texas Senator Ted Cruz, 45. In the middle of the Super Tuesday primaries on March 1, after already winning a whopping five states, Trump gave a roaring speech about his big night, but . Click through to read what Trump said!
Broadcasting from his campaign headquarters in Palm Beach, Florida, Trump congratulated himself for his huge wins on Super Tuesday night at the time of his speech: Georgia, Virginia, Alabama, Massachusetts, and Tennessee. He was well ahead of his fellow candidates, with Ted holding just Oklahoma and Texas. The others? Nothing.
And the rest was pure, classic Trump-ism. Marco is a lightweight? Check! He’s going to make America great again? You can count on it! Trump gave reporters the rare opportunity to ask questions after his speech, but what nobody seemed to hear were answers. Immediately, reporters asked Trump if he was going to finally disavow the endorsement of former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard and former Louisiana politician David Duke, something that has drawn fire from Republican leaders in Washington DC.
Per usual, Trump denied that he ever refused to disavow the KKK, and mused that he needed to know more about groups before writing them off. Um, the KKK? He insisted that he actually did disavow the hate group, but posted it on Facebook and Twitter — and the media refused to cover it. Wait, what? The first thing anyone ever checks in the morning is Trump’s crazy Twitter feed!
Something very interesting from this evening was the fact that Chris Christie has gotten so buddy-buddy with Trump so suddenly! Chris gave a glorifying and complimentary introduction to the GOP presidential frontrunner, going so far as to say that his run for the presidency wasn’t a campaign — “it’s a movement.” We seem to remember just a few weeks ago when they were at each other’s throats on the debate stage! So we have to wonder — Chris be Trump’s choice for the Vice Presidential seat?
HollywoodLifers, do you think Trump could be our next president?
