Trump Takes Credit for Sanders’ Surge Over Clinton: ‘I’m Saying I Did That’

GOP frontrunner Donald Trump is taking credit for Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) lead over Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire, and also in Iowa, where Sanders leads Clinton by one point.

“Look, I was the best thing that ever happened to Bernie Sanders, because my attack on Hillary – all of a sudden she went down, and Sanders got all the credit for it, right?” Trump told the crowd at a campaign rally in Iowa. “They start saying, ‘Bernie Sanders is surging, an amazing thing happened.’ I did it – I’m saying I did that.”

“This guy Bernie Sanders – give me a break. How does he figure this whole thing? But he got all the credit – it’s unbelievable,” Trump added.

“I mean, here’s a guy, he’s a – well, they say socialist, but some people would say he’s a communist, OK?” Trump said of Sanders. Trump said he could go after Sanders, but didn’t want to help Clinton’s campaign.

“But I shouldn’t hit him too hard, though, because if I hit him hard, he’ll go down and then it’ll be more of a fight with Hillary, and maybe we won’t have to fight for a while,” Trump explained to the audience. “So I’ll say, ‘Isn’t he a wonderful guy?’”

“So now maybe I should hit – Oh, I could hit him,” Trump teased. “I have stuff in my mind. I could sit him so hard he would drop. He would drop. No, he’s – he’s – no, he’s too easy. He’s too easy. He’s really too easy.”
