Addressing supporters in Palm Beach, Florida, Donald Trump touted his projected victories in numerous Super Tuesday States and launched an insult against the Democratic front-runner, Hillary Clinton.

"This has been an amazing evening," Trump said as he took the stage.

Reflecting on his wins in Massachusetts, Virginia, Tennessee, Alabama and Georgia, Trump told the crowd "already we've won five major states."

"It's really been great," Trump said.

Trump acknowledged Ted Cruz, who managed to win in his home state of Texas.

"I want to congratulate Ted on the winning of Texas," Trump said, describing the victory as "an excellent win."

Referencing Clinton, Trump mentioned a line of her Super Tuesday speech in which she referenced his slogan.

Also addressing supporters in Florida, Clinton suggested that instead of making America great, it needed to be made whole.

"She wants to make America whole again and I'm trying to figure out what is that all about," Trump said.

"Make America great again is going to be much better than making America whole again."

Trump also mentioned "little" Marco Rubio, saying how tough the night had been for the Florida Senator .

"We're going to spend a lot of time in Florida," Trump said, discussing whether Rubio would be able to win his home state.

"Our nation is in serious trouble," Trump declared before launching into his usual stump speech.

Trump was introduced by Chris Christie, who recently endorsed him after ending his own bid for the presidency.

Christie recalled Trump's victories saying it was the beginning of Donald Trump bringing the Republican party together for a big victory in November.

"In all those states who supported Mr. Trump today, our message is to begin to get ready for the fight that is coming this fall," Christie said.

After delivering his remarks, Trump took questions from reporters gathered at his headquarters. Responding to inquiries, Trump touched about topics ranging from the Klu Klux Klan to planned parenthood.
