MANCHESTER, NH (CBS) – Donald Trump thanked his supporters after a decisive victory in the New Hampshire Republican primary Tuesday night.

With 62% of precincts reporting, Trump held an 18-point lead over Ohio Gov. John Kasich.

"It's so beautiful and I love it so much and I love the people and I actually think they like me a lot," Trump said of the Granite State.


"We're going to be back a lot, we're not going to forget you. You started it. Remember you started it."

Trump congratulated Bernie Sanders who beat Hillary Clinton in the Democratic Primary.

"I heard parts of Bernie's speech, he wants to give away our country folks," Trump said as his supporters booed. "We're going to make America great again, but we're going to do it the old fashioned way."

Trump said he would end New Hampshire's opioid problem by building a wall at the Mexico-U.S. border.

"We're going to end it, we're going to end it at the southern border," Trump said. "It's going to be over."

Kasich finished in second place. Ted Cruz and Jeb Bush were battling for third.
