When asked what historical political movement he thought his own campaign was most similar on Bloomberg's With All Due Respect show, Trump mentioned Reagan. “Now, Reagan had a little bit of this, but I don't think to the same extent—but he also won,” Trump said.
Trump mentioned several times that winning is the ultimate goal for him, but added, “I think that the closest thing I can think of is Reagan, but I don't think it's the intensity that we have.”
Trump also responded to critics who believe that the large crowds he brings won't actually go out to vote. “Why would a person stand in line for seven hours and then not want to go into a voting booth?" he asked.
