ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said he's happy with his victory in South Carolina, but that he still faces stiff competition in his bid to win his party's nomination for the White House. The New York real estate mogul appeared on the CBS program, "Face the Nation," following his victory in South Carolina's primary, a win that solidified his position as the Republican front-runner. But he refused to say that the race is now his to lose, saying that his remaining rivals are very talented people . Trump also told the host of the Sunday morning news show he was shocked when Pope Francis said he was "not Christian" because of his views on immigration, adding that he had "never seen the pope talk about something as unimportant as Donald Trump." Trump also talked about the Iraqi War, insisting that he had always opposed it, and calling it "perhaps the worst mistake we've ever made."
