WATCH: Trump Gives Victory Speech from South Carolina
Donald Trump spoke to supporters tonight fresh off his win in South Carolina’s Republican presidential primary.
Speaking from his campaign headquarters in Spartanburg, SC, Trump thanked his family and South Carolina’s Lt. Gov. Henry McMaster for their support.
“I will take him over the governor anytime, because we won,” he said.
Trump also congratulated Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio for their performances in the primary.
“There’s nothing easy about running for president, I can tell you,” he said.
“It’s tough, it’s nasty, it’s mean, it’s vicious, it’s beautiful. When you win, it’s beautiful.”
Trump’s wife, Melania, also said a few words, calling South Carolina “an amazing place.”
“He loves you, we love you,” she said.
Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, spoke to the audience as well.
“The momentum since the beginning of this campaign has been unbelievable, and that’s because my father’s message resonates so deeply with so many people,” she said.
“My father is an incredibly hard worker, and he’ll work for each and every one of you.”
Tonight marks the second consecutive victory for Trump, who had a sweeping win over his GOP competitors in the Feb. 9 New Hampshire primary.
