American Business Man, Investor, And Politician Donald Trump Plans To Run For President In 2016
|Donald Trump Plans To Run For President In 2016|
Donald Trump was God’s gift to the Internet on Tuesday.
After years of head fakes about running for the White House, Donald promised his two-decade game of pretend is over: “I am officially running for president of the United States. And we are going to make our country great again.”
Trump, 68, didn't hesitate to remind his supporters that he's "really rich." "That's the kind of thinking you need for this country. It sounds crass, but it's not crass."
We have losers. We have people that don’t have it. We have people that are morally corrupt.”
Trump was unlike any regular candidate’s announcement.
There was no attempt at diversity in the crowd of supporters, or the warm-up acts before he took the stage: the event was all about Trump.
The only intro act was Ivanka Trump, who introduced her father with glowing praise.
"I'm the most successful person ever to run for the presidency, by far. Nobody's ever been more successful than me. I'm the most successful person ever to run," he added.
Trump also addressed his strategy for defeating ISIS in the interview … sort of.
"I have an absolute way of defeating ISIS, and it would be decisive and quick and it would be very beautiful. Very surgical."
He added, "If I tell you right now, everyone else is going to say: 'Wow, what a great idea.' You're going to have 10 candidates going to use it and they're going to forget where it came from. Which is me."
Though the public will certainly be seeing a lot more of the Donald now that he's officially running for president, there's one place where fans probably won't find him.
In the wake of his announcement, NBC said in a statement that it will have to "re-evaluate" Trump's role as host of Celebrity Apprentice since the network is required to give equal screen time to each presidential candidate.
