Donald Trump for President

Someone at CNN was interviewing Donald Trump and he has now confirmed that he is seriously thinking of running for President in the 2012 US election ......this guys ego just doesn't come any bigger.

Can you imagine if he won .....the US would be the laughing stock of the world.

With his history of personal bankruptcies, he'd sure fit in well with the current admin in DC

But Donald believes in doing it BIG! So he's right in league now! At least he's managed to pull himself out and get back on his feet. Maybe he'd have some good advice.

He's talked about it before but seems to be a little more serious now.

I wouldn't vote for him, but if I could get a job as his apprentice, I might agree to be his campaign manager!

LoL... IMHO the only thing he has done worthwhile is put his name on some pretty decent looking mens dress shirts. If that isn't worthy of the presidential title... I don't know what is!

I read again about him thinking of running. They were talking about which one of his apprentices would be "the best" for him. Brett Michaels got the most votes. Uh huh.

Trump is the kind of guy who thinks that all publicity is good publicity. I know that there are a lot of people in both parties getting annoyed with his "birther" platform. I think he's secretly working for the Democrats. They must be paying him to make the Republicans look ridiculous. (Or more ridiculous depending on your political views.)

I do know someone who knows him and has worked with him and even though they aren't politically of the same mind she says that he's a great guy and VERY smart.
