After what can only be described as a very successful Super Tuesday evening for presidential candidate Donald Trump, he took to the stage at his Mara-a-Lago resort to give a victory speech that was not only celebratory, but also conciliatory towards his GOP rivals.
In particular, Trump reached out to Texas Senator Ted Cruz and congratulated him for his hard work in Texas. “I do congratulate Ted Cruz, because I know how hard Ted worked in Texas,” he said.
And while Trump has identified himself as a “unifier” in the past, tonight it was a central theme to his message. “I am a unifer,” he said. “I would love to see the Republican Party and everybody get together and unify.”

It seems likely that as Trump gets closer to being the Republican nominee, he will need to mend old wounds and unify the party behind him in the difficult fight against Hillary Clinton.
Trump expressed optimism that going forward, a Trump candidacy will not only win the Hispanic and African American vote, but also take votes away from the Democratic Party. “I think we’re going to be more inclusive… more unified, and I think we’re going to be a much bigger party,” said Trump.
