<p>Despite coming in second place and nearly falling to third in Monday&rsquo;s Iowa caucuses, Donald Trump was still the dominant focus of the GOP segment on ABC&rsquo;s<em> World News Tonight </em>with well over half of the four-minute segment devoted to the <strong>&ldquo;Mount Trump erupting&rdquo; </strong>on Twitter on Tuesday because he<strong> &ldquo;never surrenders ground.&rdquo;</strong></p>

<p>Anchor David Muir started the newscast by briefly alluding to Senator Ted Cruz&rsquo;s victory but shifted gears to Trump <strong>&ldquo;firing off tweets tonight, a picture of him headed to New Hampshire a short time ago and what he&#39;s now saying about his second place finish in Iowa, arguing it was a long shot, great finish.&rdquo;</strong></p>
