Donald Trump swept to victory in the South Carolina Republican primary on Saturday, putting him in a commanding position as the race shifts to a slew of delegate-rich contests.
Jeb Bush, though, abruptly suspended his campaign after a distant finish, leaving unclear to whom his supporters will gravitate.
But Trump, at his victory rally, seemed to dismiss the notion that other candidates would benefit from Bush’s exit.
“[The pundits] don’t understand that as people drop out, I’m going to get a lot of those votes,” Trump said.
He said the primary race lately has been “mean” and “vicious” but: “When you win, it’s beautiful.”
