Washington, March 2: Republican candidate Donald Trump swept ‘Super Tuesday' of this presidential election year on March 1, but he decided to observe the occasion in a way that no presidential candidate has done for a long, long time.
There was no noisy celebration with supporters with drinks and balloons and Trump, who now looks a strong contender for the presidential nomination, opted to hold a press conference instead of a party at Palm Beach in Florida, said the Washington Post.
"But as Trump stood in front of a couple dozen friends and dozens of reporters from around the world on Tuesday night, he started talking like a Republican nominee focused on winning a general election instead of the next primary. His audience: The millions of potential voters sitting at home watching television or scrolling through the Web," the report said.
Trump, who won seven out of 11 states and was also leading in Alaska, shifted his focus to Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton, who he might face in the final battle for the White House in November. He said the former secretary of state did little for the US all these years and that he would be disappointed to see her being nominated for the presidential election.
Stressing on issues like economic turnaround, illegal immigration, building the wall on Mexico border, improving the military might and others, Trump said he is "a unifier" who would like to see the Republican Party and everybody unify."
"And when we unify, there's nobody, nobody that's going to beat
us," he said.
Trump has now won 10 out of 15 states in the primary season.
