In typically bombastic fashion he celebrated with a swipe at Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton.
He said: "The only card she has is the woman’s card. She’s got nothing else going on.
"And frankly, if Hillary Clinton were a man, I don’t think she’d get 5 percent of the vote. The only thing she’s got going is the women’s vote. And the beautiful thing is that women don’t like her."
Mary Pat Christie, who is the first lady of New Jersey and is married to Chris Christie, a Republican governor who has endorsed Trump, summed up the world's despair.
Tuesday night wasn’t the first time Trump accused Clinton of playing “the woman’s card.”
He made similar comments just that morning.
Clinton responded in her victory speech. “The other day, Mr. Trump accused me of playing the, quote, woman card,” she said. “Well, if fighting for women’s health care and paid family leave and equal pay is playing the woman card, then deal me in!”
