Trump began the night by mocking Jeb Bush, a frequent target.
“Then you have other people like Jeb, who has spent more money than anybody else and he’s down near the bottom of the pack. When he stops spending money on negative ads against me, I’ll stop.”

“Who thinks Hillary is going to make it?” he asked the crowd. "She’s got to make it through this wacky socialist guy Bernie."
“He wants to give the country away,” Trump said of Sanders. "Your taxes are going to be at like 95 percent, folks.
“I don’t know that we’re going to be fighting Hillary,” he added. "This guy Sanders is up ranting and raving like a lunatic that he won. I’m shocked that he won. What are we coming to? I just don’t see a socialist as the head of our country.”
Trump told listeners that career politicians like them are more concerned with saving their skins than lifting everyday Americans.
“They’re not stupid, they’re preservationists,” he said. "They’re good at preserving their jobs, they’re great at getting all this stuff, and they’ll never help you. The reason is that they’re all taken care of one way or another.”
