He took to Twitter before polls opened to remind people to vote and throw shade at his opponent Ted Cruz. Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump Make sure you get on the Trump line and are not mislead by the Cruz people. They are bad! BE CAREFUL. 02:00 AM - 24 Feb 2016 Reply Retweet Favorite While the hotel mogul may have won over enough residents of Nevada to win the vote, not everyone was happy about the news of his victory.

The win may only encourage Trump's consistently crass campaign attitude. In the past week alone he has called Cruz a liar and mocked a protester whom he boasted to his audience he would like to "punch him in the face". The republican candidates will go head-to-head at a debate in Houston, Texas, on Thursday ahead of Super Tuesday on March 1, when 12 states will join the race and vote.
