Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump compared his campaign to that of former President Ronald Reagan in a recent interview, giving his own movement even higher marks.

When asked what historical political movement he thought his own campaign was most similar on Bloomberg’s With All Due Respectshow, 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.
