Donald Trump had been hinting around that he may bow out of the race for Presidency. And yesterday he made it official, that he will not be running in 2012 with much regret.
After talking to my sources, here is what they found:
As soon as DONALD TRUMP’S poll numbers took a dive, we called it: He was destined to bow out of the presidential race.
What we didn’t expect, however, was that he’d do it before the season finale of “Celebrity Apprentice” . . . and thus deprive himself of the potential ratings bump he could have gotten by tying his announcement to the live broadcast.
But yesterday, he announced that the twisted, egomaniacal dream is over. Instead of running for president, Donald has signed on for two more seasons of “Celebrity Apprentice”.
Trump first made the call during an NBC press conference. Then he issued a more formal statement. He said, quote, “After considerable deliberation and reflection, I have decided not to pursue the office of the Presidency.
“This decision does not come easily or without regret; especially when my potential candidacy continues to be validated by ranking at the top of the Republican contenders in polls across the country.”
He added, quote, “I maintain the strong conviction that if I were to run, I would be able to win the primary, and ultimately, the general election . . .”
“Ultimately, however, business is my greatest passion and I am not ready to leave the private sector.”
Donald didn’t endorse another candidate. He just said, quote, “I look forward to supporting the candidate who is most qualified to help us tackle our country’s most important issues.”
Donald also took credit for getting Americans talking about important issues like China.
Seriously . . . he claimed that the issue of China’s growing economic influence on us was, quote, “seldom mentioned before I brought [it] to the forefront of the country’s conversation.”
Ok Donald, thanks for the laughs! Has anyone figured out if his hair is real or a lace front? I’ma go with lace front.
