Hillary Clinton trounced Bernie Sanders in South Carolina’s primary on Saturday, in large part buoyed by the African American vote.

In remarks to her supporters following her sizable victory, Clinton took a few swipes at Republican front-runner Donald Trump. “We don’t need to make America great again,” Clinton said. “America has never stopped being great. But we do need to make America whole again. Instead of building walls, we need to be tearing down barriers.”

Clinton sounded a theme of bringing the country together, saying that what American needs more “love and kindness.” She thanked her supporters in a tweet following her solid win.

Sanders, who left South Carolina before the polls were closed, moved on to campaign in states where he might have more promising chances. He vowed to continue the campaign.

The campaigns now move on to the high-stakes Super Tuesday next week when 13 states and one territory go to the polls.
