Donald Trump took credit Wednesday for the temporary rebranding of Budweiser beer to “America” for the summer.

Making an appearance on Fox and Friends, the presumptive 2016 Republican presidential nominee was asked if he thought his slogan “Make America Great Again” had something to do with the name change, according to The Hill.

“I think so, they’re so impressed with what our country will become that they decided to do this before the fact,” Trump told Fox and Friends over the phone.

Anheuser-Busch announced the Budweiser name change on Tuesday, saying that it was repackaging 12-ounce bottles and cans with “America” from May 23 through the November election.

Anheuser-Busch did not immediately return a request for comment.
