Trump: I’m Running as a Republican, Period


trump1Billionaire Donald Trump has made it official: If he decides to run for president in 2012, he will do so as a Republican. “If I run, I’m running as a Republican,” the real estate mogul told the Shark Tank political¬†website.Trump, who continues to lead several presidential polls, including an ongoing poll by Newsmax, dismissed the likelihood that he’d run as an independent, as that would split the Republican vote and all but guarantee President Barack Obama’s re-election.

That would “absolutely cause a loss for the Republicans — it would be an Obama dream,” he said.

Trump also said he was prepared to sink “tens of millions of dollars” from his own personal fortune into a presidential campaign.

  1. If three high profile telegenic candidates like Donald Trump, Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann all run for the Republican nomination it will split the vote and help President Obama. The role of the United States in the nascent Messianic structure is super important. If a week is a long time in politics then nineteen months till that first Tuesday in November 2012 is an eternity.

  2. att Adam Neira
    The three high profile candidates you mentioned will have no affect on Obama’s potential win. He is a democrat and as a result he will not be involved in the republican primary. The fight will be between the three, Obama has no involvement.

  3. Yeah! Keep talking! They are scared to death that Trump has a legitimate chance to be the next President of the United States! If they (the left) keep trashing Trump, it will only

  4. I like Trump. He is a real Wheeler-Dealer no-nonsense businessman.

    You can tell a person by his character: Some years ago a frum family in Los Angeles needed to transport their very-ill child to the east coast for medical treatment. Since the child needed oxygen and had other special needs he could not fly on a commercial aircraft. Trump lend the family the use of his private jet to transport the child to the east coast for medical treatment and then back home. Now that’s what I call a MENTSCH!!!
