“It is a great evening,” Trump told Fox News Digital in an exclusive interview after races were called in his favor in 11 states, and while awaiting race calls and polls closing in others. 

“Rarely has politics seen anything quite like this,” he said. 

Trump added: “It is my honor to represent not just the Republican Party but our country in leading it back to health and prosperity.” 

Trump’s exclusive reaction came after 11 states were called. 

Later, Trump won California. 

Former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley won Vermont Tuesday night–her second primary victory of the 2024 cycle after winning Washington D.C. this week. 

The loss for Trump, though, left his campaign unfazed. 

“President Trump dominated Super Tuesday in convincing fashion in ways that have never been done,” a Trump campaign spokesperson told Fox News Digital after the race was called in Vermont. “There is no doubt— President Trump is the nominee and he will go on to defeat Crooked Joe Biden.”

The Fox News Decision Desk is still awaiting race calls in Utah and poll closures in Alaska. 

TRUMP SAYS SUPREME COURT RULING IN COLORADO CASE IS ‘UNIFYING AND INSPIRATIONAL’

Trump’s major Super Tuesday primary victories come after he dominated the Iowa caucuses, left New Hampshire with a commanding victory, swept caucuses in Nevada and the U.S. Virgin Islands, won South Carolina with a “bigger win” than he anticipated, and won Michigan. 

Trump won GOP contests in Missouri, Idaho, and Michigan over the weekend, and North Dakota Monday.

Trump, in a speech at his Super Tuesday Victory Party at Mar-a-Lago, blasted President Biden as “the worst president in the history of our country.” 

“There has never been anything like what’s happening to our country,” Trump said, pointing to the crisis at the southern border. 

The former president, during the speech, said he is focused on efforts to “unify this country and unify this party.” 

“We have a great Republican Party with tremendous talent and we want to have unity and we’re going to have unity and going to happen very quickly,” Trump said. “I have been saying lately, success will bring unity to our country.” 

Trump added: “Our country was coming together. Our country was coming together. And now we have a very divided country.” 

Trump called Election Day on Nov. 5 “the single most important day in the history of our country.” 

“We’re going to take it and make it like it should be… right now our country is known as a joke,” Trump said. 

Trump reflected on the successes of his first term, including energy independence, the economy and foreign policy. 

The former president said some claimed his personality would “cause wars.” 

“No, my personality is going to keep us out of wars — and that’s what happened,” Trump said referring to his presidency and how it impacted the global stage. “For 20 years they were fighting ISIS. I defeated ISIS in four weeks. We got rid of ISIS 100%.”

Trump said there has “never been an administration that had more success in so many different elements.” 

“We got the largest tax cuts in history. We have the largest regulation cuts in history. We rebuilt our military,” Trump said. 

Trump vowed, if elected to a second term, to “take back our country.”

We are going to have the greatest economy ever in the history of our country. We’re going to top what we did. We are going to become an energy center of the world,” he said. “We’re going to pay off debt. We’re going to do things that nobody thought was possible.” 

Trump added: “But we’re going to win this election because we have no choice. If we lose the election, we’re not going to have a country.”
