Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton Wins Big
Donald Trump won big on Tuesday, April 19. The GOP frontrunner won the New York primary, beating Republican opponents John Kasich and Ted Cruz.
According to CNN, at 9:15 p.m. ET, Trump was in the lead at 68.9 percent while Kasich was at 18.5 percent and Cruz was at 12.6 percent.
“Thank you New York! I love you! #MakeAmericaGreatAgain #Trump2016,” the businessman, 69, tweeted after the polls closed on Tuesday night.
Trump’s victory comes after he made a major snafu on Monday, April 18.
The controversial candidate accidentally referred to 9/11 as ‘7-Eleven’ during a rally in Buffalo, New York.
“I wrote this out, and it’s very close to my heart,” he told the crowd. “Because I was down there and I watched our police and our firemen down at 7/11, down at the World Trade Center right after it came down. And I saw the greatest people I’ve ever seen in action.”
On the Democratic side, CNN projected Hillary Clinton as the winner over Bernie Sanders, with a 4 percent lead.
Clinton tweeted after the news: “To our volunteers, organizers, and supporters who worked your hearts out in New York: This is your win. Thank you.”
