Trump also slammed some of his critics and GOP rivals, particularly Jeb Bush.

"How can I be tied with this guy? He’s terrible," Trump said of the former Florida governor. "Jeb Bush? I don't get it."

Trump also doubled down on his controversial comments about Mexico and illegal immigration.

"I love the Mexican people ... I respect Mexico," Trump said. "But the problem we have is that their leaders are much sharper, smarter and more cunning than our leaders, and they’re killing us at the border."

"Don't worry, we'll take our country back."
