DONALD TRUMP: One of  the biggest stor[ies] in all of politics, worldwide, in all of politics in this country, for decades is what's happened with the Republican Party. Do you know that people coming out to vote are up 50, 60, 70 percent?

SEAN HANNITY (HOST): It's massive. It's massive. 

TRUMP: In a couple of states, it's over 100 percent

HANNITY: Yeah 

TRUMP: I will take full credit for that by the way. I'll tell you right now, I'm taking 100 percent credit. 

HANNITY: I don't doubt that that's a big part of it but any -- 

TRUMP: Do you know that this is the biggest story in all of politics worldwide? And people talk about it. But they don't talk about -- this is such a great thing for the Republican Party, and instead of dividing and fighting, we should take advantage of it. And you know who the people are coming out to vote? Democrats and independents. They're coming out by the millions. We have millions, 5 million people coming out to vote out of nowhere. It's never happened before. I've been on the cover of TIME magazine just about, I think it was four times now. I'm on this week also. Four times now in the last few months and a lot of it is because of this. They've never seen this happen before.
