Donald Trump unabashedly took credit for Mitt Romney’s win in Nevada over the weekend, boasting that it was his endorsement of the GOP frontrunner that pushed him to victory. “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,” he said Monday on Fox and Friends. “And a lot of people are giving me credit for that. And I will accept that credit.”
