    Republican Trump wins in Mississippi and Michigan

    March 9, Washington: Republican Donald Trump has won two more states on Tuesday, putting more pressure on rivals who are trying to stop his drive for the presidential race.

    Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton won her party's primary in Mississippi, but her battle with Bernie Sanders in Michigan is too close to call.

    The Republicans are also voting in Idaho and Hawaii.

    The four state contests on Tuesday help choose the candidates from each party who will compete in November's presidential election.

    Trump said at a press conference in Florida, "One of the things I am most happy about is the turnout has been just massive… I think it's the single biggest story in politics today."

    He also said he would be more presidential than anybody except Abraham Lincoln and berated a reporter for asking how to explain his vulgar language to children.

    Hillary Clinton, addressing voters in Ohio, talked about holding businesses accountable for exploiting workers and hoarding profits, and said the election should not be about petty insults.

    After the previous round of voting on Saturday, Mr Trump, a New York property tycoon with no experience of elected office, won in Louisiana and Kentucky, reports said.
