Donald Trump Wins New Hampshire: Watch His Victory Speech And Learn What's Next For His Campaign
 
   ...Once the results were out, Trump congratulated his peers and thanked his supporters. His speech was peppered with applause and the occasional "U-S-A" chant, and he spent most of his 20 minutes on stage running through his platform. Trump mentioned repealing the Affordable Care Act, taking better care of American veterans, reducing the unemployment rate and making better trade deals with China. He vowed to "knock the hell out of ISIS" and protect the "sacred" Second Amendment.
     He also brought up one of his most-talked-about proposals: building a wall along the Mexico border. Trump said it would curb New Hampshire's heroin problem by restricting the flow of drugs into the country. "We're going to end it at the southern border," he said, drawing a line in the air with his finger. He added: "We're going to have strong, incredible borders, and people are ... going to come into our country legally."

Watch Trump Respond to Former Mexican Leader's Comments About His 'Stupid Wall'
    Former Mexican President Felipe Calderón told CNBC Saturday that his country would not contribute “a single cent” to the building of Donald Trump's proposed wall.
    “Mexican people, we are not going to pay any single cent for such a stupid wall!” Calderón, who served as president from 2006 to 2012, said. “And it's going to be completely useless.”
    “The first loser of such a policy would be the United States,” he added. “If this guy pretends that closing the borders to anywhere either for trade [or] for people is going to provide prosperity to the United State, he is completely crazy.”
    Trump appeared on MSNBC's “Morning Joe” Tuesday and offered a response to Calderón's comments.
    “I heard the head of Mexico said ‘no way,' and I said, ‘Now the wall just got taller,” the Republican candidate told “Morning Joe” hosts.
