So I guess it is official – Donald Trump’s whole presidential “campaign” was a sham. He was doing it for the press and sadly, the Apprentice’s ratings were not affected by the ridiculously original promotional campaign. Today, the reality tv star and “business” guy announced he would like to do what he does best – business which he says is his greatest passion.
In a statement he wrote:
“I maintain the strong conviction that if I were to run, I would be able to win the primary and ultimately, the general election. I have spent the past several months unofficially campaigning and recognize that running for public office cannot be done half heartedly. Ultimately, however, business is my greatest passion and I am not ready to leave the private sector.”
Now I don’t know about you, but when Donald Trump decided to run for presidency. His campaign was all about Obama’s birth certificate accusing President Obama of hiding his certificate saying he was a secret Muslim Socialist from Kenya. He reignited the “birthers” movement and seemed to talk to large crowds about anything BUT politics. However, if you ask him he think he brought about serious change:
“My ability to bring important economic and foreign policy issues to the forefront of the national dialogue is perhaps my greatest asset and one of the most valuable services I can provide to this country. I will continue to push our President and the country’s policy makers to address the dire challenges arising from our unsustainable debt structure and increasing lack of global competitiveness. “
Trump is the second guy to drop out of the Republican race in two days. Mike Huckanee, announced on his FOX tx how that he would not be running as president, he just liked his day job so much more!
What do you think about the news?
