Donald Trump says he’s not running for president
Donald Trump announced Monday he won’t run for the U.S. presidency in 2012, after all. The New York real estate tycoon made the announcement Monday after months of teasing the American public and toying with the nation’s political media by musing he was serious about challenging for the Republican presidential nomination.
"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.” (Joshua Roberts/Reuters)
