As the polls closed in New York at 9 p.m. ET, networks made an immediate call for Donald Trump on the Republican side, and concluded the Democratic race was too early to call.
Moments before the polls closed, Trump himself weighed in on what he was seeing on cable news, calling CNN “impossible to watch” with a “terrible panel, angry haters.”
