"We don't have much of a race anymore based on what I'm seeing on television," Trump said at his victory speech in Manhattan tonight.

"Senator [Ted] Cruz is just about mathematically eliminated ... we have won millions of more votes than Senator Cruz and millions and millions of votes more than Governor [John] Kasich," Trump added.

Trump's victory speech came after he was projected as the winner of the Republican primary, and though there have been no firm reports on the number of delegates he will collect as a result, he appeared confident.

"We're going to end at a very high level and get a lot more delegates" than pundits predicted "even in their wildest projections," he said.

Trump has taken issue in the past how various states allocate delegates.

"It's really nice to win the delegates with the votes, you know. It's really nice," he said.

"Nobody should be given delegates which is a ticket to victory.... It's a system that's rigged," he said.

Trump's children Tiffany and Donald Jr. were standing directly behind him along with former New York gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino, who is a Trump supporter. Trump said that some of his businessmen friends like Carl Icahn and real estate investor Steve Roth were also at the victory party.

Trump's wife Melania, daughter Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner were also at the event in Trump Tower.
