Did you know Abraham Lincoln was a Republican? Donald Trump assumes you don't!
"Great president," he said of Lincoln on Tuesday night. "Most people don't even know he was a Republican. Does anyone know? Lot of people don't know that."
Trump won the presidency as the candidate from the Republican Party, which has long called itself "the party of Lincoln."
"We have to build that up a little bit more," Trump said. "Let's take an ad. Let's use one of those PACs."
