Appearing on Fox and Friends Monday, Donald Trump wasted no time in giving himself credit for Mitt Romney‘s landslide victory in the Nevada caucus.
“There was a lot riding on that particular race in Nevada and it was interesting, because the numbers were much, much greater than you thought,” Trump gloated. “And a lot of people are giving me credit for that. And I will accept that credit.”
Earlier in the interview, co-anchor Steve Doocy asked why Trump took so long to endorse a candidate.
“I like Newt a lot, but I think Mitt Romney is going to win the election against Obama,” Trump observed. “I really believe that. I think Obama will not do well and won’t do as well as people are thinking he’s going to do, and I think that Mitt Romney is going to win the election. But there was a lot of confusion as to who I was going to endorse and frankly, that made things exciting!”
A Facebook/Politico poll found that forty-one percent of Nevada caucus-goers surveyed said Trump’s endorsement gave them a more negative view of Romney.
