TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Donald Trump says that he is New Jersey.

The presumptive Republican presidential nominee said on Fox News Tuesday night that he loves New Jersey and “I am New Jersey” in response to a question about whether he could win there in November.

Host Sean Hannity cited a poll released Tuesday that shows him trailing Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton by only 4 percentage points and asked him if he thought he could win the state in November. The Monmouth University poll of 703 registered voters had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.7 points.

Trump says he thinks he could win and says New Jersey is like a second home. He pointed out the property and employees he has in the state

Trump told Hannity that New Jersey needs jobs and that he is going to bring them back.
