Donald Trump says he is no more liberal than late President Ronald Reagan, a registered Democrat for most of his life, who was "was a little bit less conservative than people think."

"Ronald Reagan was a Democrat and he was sort of liberal," Trump told Fox News' Sean Hannity on Tuesday's "Hannity" show. "He was a Democrat with a liberal bent and he became a great conservative. He had something very special.

"If you think of it, he was a little bit less conservative than people think, but he had a great heart and I have a great heart."

Conservatives have been attacking Trump's positions on some issues, such as abortion and healthcare, saying that he leans toward liberal viewpoints. Further, he has come under fire for donating money to Democrats, including Hillary Clinton, but says he donated money to both parties because he was a businessman.
