Trump Mocks Biden Over 'Super Thursday' Gaffe During North Carolina Rally

President Donald Trump took aim at Democratic candidate former Vice President Joe Biden for mistakenly referring to the Super Tuesday primaries as "Super Thursday" during a campaign speech in North Carolina Monday night.

Trump also made reference to a February comment from Biden in which he claimed to be a "Democratic candidate for the United States Senate."

"Look, tomorrow is Super Thur... Super Tuesday," Biden told a campaign rally crowd in Texas today. After catching his gaffe, Biden said, "I tell you what, I'm rushing ahead, aren't I?"

Trump mentioned Biden's comment by telling the crowd how Biden did not have much "enthusiasm" surrounding his campaign.

"There's not a lot of enthusiasm for Biden," Trump said. "I thought he gave up the presidency the other day. He said he's running for the Senate. I looked at the first lady, I said, 'Hey, he's running for the senate.'"

"And today, he just said 'Super Thursday,'" Trump added. "He's looking forward to Super Thursday."

Newsweek reached out to the Biden campaign for comment but did not receive a response in time for publication.

In South Carolina on Monday, Biden told his supporters that he was a viable candidate for the U.S. Senate.

"You're the ones who sent Barack Obama to the presidency and I have a simple proposition here," Biden said. "I'm here to ask for your help. Where I come from, you don't get far unless you ask."

"I'm a Democratic candidate for the United States Senate," Biden continued. "Look me over. If you like what you see, help me out. If not, you can vote for the other Biden. Give me a look, though."

Biden, whom Trump often refers to as "Sleepy Joe" during his rallies, won his first Democratic primary victory in South Carolina on Saturday.

With 48.4 percent of the popular vote, Biden strongly defeated his opponents with Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders coming in second place with 19.9 percent of the vote.

Former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar dropped out of the race after the results of the South Carolina primary were announced. Both former candidates are expected to give Biden their political support.

"When we got into this race," Buttigieg said in a statement Monday, "our goal was not simply to win the presidency. It was to help unify Americans to defeat Donald Trump and usher in the era that must come next. That is why I'm proud to stand with Joe Biden to help make him our next president of the United States."

"And it's why I'm urging everyone who came to our campaign in order to change our politics and defeat this president to support him too," Buttigieg continued.
