Republicans are not getting the blame for the government shutdown, real estate mogul Donald Trump told "Fox & Friends."

"A lot of blame is not being put on the Republicans," Trump said Monday. "Actually, the Republicans are doing a lot better than people thought."

"You have to give [House Speaker John] Boehner and some of these guys pretty good credit. They're out there, taking big risks, big chances. And nobody is there. Nobody is talking. And nobody is leading."

Trump said the key to solving the gridlock over the Continuing Resolution to fund the government rests with the leadership of President Barack Obama.

"The Obama administration is not leading," Trump said. "In 100 years, when they write about this, they're not going to be talking about Boehner. They're going to be talking about the president's administration."

Trump indicated that unity among Republicans is critical in order to negotiate a positive outcome to the current budget debate.

"If the Republicans would stick together, they'd win. Because, at some point, the Obama administration has to negotiate," he said.
