The Donald mulling a run at the presidency

Trump says U.S. is “not respected to anywhere near what it used to be”


 

Donald Trump told Fox News on Tuesday he is “seriously considering” running in the 2012 presidential election in the U.S. “I’m a Republican so if I did anything, I’d do it, I guess, as a Republican,” he said. “I’m totally being serious because I can’t stand what’s happening to the country.” Trump’s statement follows a report in Time magazine that a recent poll in New Hampshire about the 2012 race included questions about him. According to the real estate mogul, the results of the poll are “amazing.””We have no common sense. And we’re losing this country,” he said. “Mark my words, if we keep going this way, we’re losing this country. It will no longer be great. It’s not respected to anywhere near what it used to be.”

The Donald mulling a run at the presidency

  1. And Donald Trump as president is what the United States needs to reclaim its proper place in the world. That's an interesting theory.

  2. D-bag for Prez! D-bag for Prez! Yay!

    Hmmm, but can this D-bag take on the teabags? Isn't he too elitist and Hollywood-connected for the base?

  3. It wouldn't be the first time he has taken a crack at it.

  4. Trump is a vacuous idiot. duh your fired . He is Sarah Palin with a bad hairpiece.

  5. He also said he'd have Paris Hilton as his running mate. Now that's hot.

    Can you picture Capitol Hill guilded in gold?

  6. I would never vote for Trump, and his even announcing he will run is all hype and publicity. How rude of him to say what he has said about our country, which I think has done well under Obama. Sorry so many people are sore about McCain and Palin not winning, but Trump is just as bad of a choice. I do not exactly hear about him giving to charity like Gates and Buffet do. He is not exactly what I would call someone who has compassion for Americans with a lower standard of living. He just abhors the thought of paying slightly more taxes than he did under Bush.

  7. He has only ran businesses, met payrolls and created jobs. Not an elitist maggot like most of the people who read MacLeans seem to want.

    • If he ran America like his businesses the country would be doomed.

    • He's declared bankruptcy twice, and bankrupted suppliers and creditors in the process while still getting rich. I'd say that's pretty much an "elitist maggot."

  8. Who does respect a bully? That's all the USA is. The school ground bully!
    Don't see any difference between USA and hitler. They both think they can take over the world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • If you don't see the difference between the US and Hitler, then you deserve the likes of Donald Trump or Sarah Palin or Al Sharpton or Micheal Moore as your leader.

  9. They should have pressured Gates to run for the next presidency. As for Trump, well if Palin could run why not him. Whether Trump will be a good president, that is another issue.

  10. Healthy, wealthy, and wise.

    One outa three ain't bad, I guess ….
