According to Press TV, US voters casted their ballots across 11 states in a day-long contest known as Super Tuesday, when the greatest number of states hold primary elections to pick the Republican and Democratic White House nominees.
Trump emerged as the winner of Republican contests in Arkansas, Virginia, Georgia, Alabama, Massachusetts, Vermont and Tennessee, while Clinton triumphed in Texas, Georgia, Arkansas, Alabama, Tennessee, Massachusetts and Virginia, according to US media projections.
Speaking from Miami, former Secretary of State Clinton already appeared to be ready to take on New York billionaire Trump in the general election.
“It’s clear tonight that the stakes in this election have never been higher and the rhetoric we are hearing on the other side has never been lower,” she said.
“Trying to divide America between us and them is wrong and we are not going to let it work,” Clinton added.
In his comments from Florida, Trump described himself as a "unifier" and called on Republicans to rally behind his candidacy.
“Our party is expanding and all you have to do is take a look at the primary states where I’ve won,” Trump said.
