Donald Trump Takes Credit For Mitt Romney’s Big Win In Nevada

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.
