Trump came in second place in the Iowa caucus, despite polls showing he had a good chance of winning the state.

At the beginning of his Wednesday interview on "Morning Joe," it seemed Trump was not thrilled to talk about his second place finish.

"So let’s talk about Iowa. What happened?" "Morning Joe" co-host Mika Brzezinski asked Trump.

After a long pause, Trump simply responded, "OK."

The hosts then asked if Trump could hear them, and he said he could.

When asked again what happened in Iowa, Trump responded, "Well, I think I did well there," adding that he could have done better if he "did a little more work there."

"The caucus system is a complex system that I was never familiar with," the Republican presidential candidate continued. "I mean, I was never involved with the caucus system. Don’t forget, Joe, I’m doing this for the first time. I’m like a rookie. And I’m learning fast, and I do learn fast."
