Trump and Clinton win in Northeast poll
April 27, Washington: Donald Trump has won presidential primaries in all five US states that voted on Tuesday, strengthening his grip on the Republican race, while Democrat Hillary Clinton raced ahead of rival Bernie Sanders.
Trump called himself the Republican "presumptive nominee" after victories in Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island, according to reports.
Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton won in four states; Connecticut, Maryland, Delaware and Pennsylvania.
The results bring him closer to the number of delegates he needs before the party's national convention in July.
For the Democrats, Clinton was denied a clean sweep by Bernie Sanders.
The Vermont senator won in Rhode Island and vowed to fight to the end of the primaries process.
Speaking at Philadelphia Convention Center after securing the four other states, Clinton said her campaign was setting "bold, progressive goals" to improve lives in the US.
