History is made as Hillary Clinton is the first woman to become the presumptive Democratic presidential candidate.

Tuesday’s primaries gave her the delegates she needed to reach the 2,383 mark needed win the nomination.

“Thanks to you we've reached a mile stone. For the first time in our country's history a woman will be a major party nominee,” said Clinton before a victory rally in New Jersey.

Clinton congratulated Colorado's caucus winner Bernie Sanders on a hard fought campaign. 

She also turned her attention to Donald Trump saying he is temperamentally unfit to be president and is a bully who goes against what America stands for.

It was also a big night for Trump because he officially got the number of needed bound delegates to clinch the nomination.

The billionaire businessman returned the jabs saying the Clinton is corrupt and can't be trusted to lead the country.

“We're broke. We owe $19 trillion going quickly to $21 trillion. Our infrastructure is a disaster. Our schools are failing. Crime is rising. People are scared. The last thing we need is Hillary Clinton in the White House or an extension of the Obama disaster,” said Trump.

Before the California primary, Sanders vowed to take the fight all the way to the Democratic convention in hopes of swaying super delegates his way.

According to the Associated Press, President Obama called Bernie Sanders and thanked him for energizing voters. The president plans to meet with the Vermont senator on Thursday.
