Donald Trump thought he won Nevada "by a lot" in 2016 and 2020, but immediately called the swing state "disgraceful" when an interviewer set the record straight.
"A GOP presidential candidate hasn't won Nevada since 2004. You lost Nevada twice," the Nevada Globe reporter told him about the Silver State, whose governor happens to be a Republican. "How do you win Nevada?"
"I think I won the last time. I think I won both times by a lot," Trump, who can never admit defeat, reflexively said, followed by predictable anger. "This is a state that is disgraceful." That oughta win Nevada voters over in 2024.
The Nevada Globe, a right-wing website, noted that the state hasn't voted for a Republican candidate since President George W. Bush carried it in 2004.
That seemed to set him off.
The former president lost the state by about 2.5 percentage points in both 2016 and 2020.
But he told the Globe "they robbed the vote at a level" and attacked the co-chair for his campaign in the state, former Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt.
"Adam Laxalt is a stiff and he didn't do the job," he said, calling him a "terrible attorney."
