Donald Trump revived his greatest hits Tuesday night in a victory speech in New Hampshire that was chock-full of all the one-line promises that catapulted him to the first place primary finish in the state.

“We are going to make America great again,” Trump boomed in the opening of his speech as he turned to thank his parents, his family, his campaign and the people of New Hampshire.

“Boy, do we have a ground game,” Trump said. “You know we learned a lot about ground games in one week. I have to tell you that.”

After a second-place finish in Iowa, Trump’s victory in New Hampshire now puts the business mogul in a favorable position as he heads to the evangelical-heavy state of South Carolina where he leads by a wide margin in polling.

Trump’s victory speech wasn’t about big ideas or policy proposals. It was about winning. He gloated that he would be “the greatest jobs president God ever created” before promising to keep winning in the weeks to come.

“We are going now to South Carolina. We are going to win in South Carolina,” Trump said.

Trump also promised to “make the deals for the American people,” “make great trade deals,” and “rebuild our military.”

“Nobody is going to mess with us,” Trump promised before adding that “we are going to knock the hell out of ISIS. “

Trump also gave a nod to the heroin problem that has rocked New Hampshire and he promised that he would “end it” and “work like hell to take care of the situation.”

“We are going to have borders again and we are going to work with you people to help you solve that very big problem and we’ll get it done.”
