During a Saturday rally in Iowa, Donald Trump said he wouldn’t lose any support in the presidential race from voters even if he shot someone.

“I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose any voters, OK?” Trump said, according to video from NBC News. “It’s, like, incredible.”

Trump made the comments while discussing how solid support for him is.

“I have the most loyal people,” he said after citing his wide lead in the polls.

He said that support for his Republican rivals is “soft.” Trump said that when people learned that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) was born in Canada, he lost supporters.
