On "Hannity" tonight, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump answered questions about his conservatism and compared himself to President Ronald Reagan.

"Ronald Reagan was a Democrat, and he was sort of liberal. And I knew him ... He liked me, I liked him," Trump said.

"He was like this great guy, and he was a Democrat with this liberal bent. And he became a great conservative, in my opinion, and a great president and a great leader," Trump said. "He had something very special."

"But, 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."

Trump pointed out, for example, that he sees positives in some of what Planned Parenthood does, in terms of providing health services to women.
