“My father would destroy that guy on the debate stage,” Trump told “Fox & Friends,” pointing out the many gaffes made by Biden while speaking on the campaign trail.

TRUMP SAYS BUTTIGIEG’S EXIT A SIGN DEMS TRYING TO STOP BERNIE SANDERS
Biden, who appeared on “Fox News Sunday,” seemed confident that the South Carolina win shows he can challenge his Democratic presidential primary rival Bernie Sanders and reclaim the mantle as his party’s front-runner in the race to battle President Trump in November’s general election.
“It’s a big boost,” Biden said. “I think it starts the real comeback and we picked up a lot of delegates.”
Sanders’ delegate lead over Joe Biden has shrunk from 30 to eight after Biden’s big win in the South Carolina primary.
With 54 delegates at stake in South Carolina, the former vice president picked up 35 to Sanders’ 13, according to The Associated Press delegate count. Six delegates remained to be allocated pending final vote totals.
Heading into key Super Tuesday contests, Sanders has led the overall race for delegates with 58 while Biden had 50. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., had eight and Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., had seven. It takes 1,991 delegates to win.
