    Trump Declines to Run for President

    Trump Declines to Run for President - FoxNews.com
    Donald Trump announced Monday that he will not run for president, saying he remains confident he could win but that he does not want to leave the private sector.

    The real estate mogul and reality TV star announced his decision in a written statement, on the same day he was set to meet with NBC executives to discuss the future of his show, "Celebrity Apprentice." Trump said he would not fade from the political spotlight, but cited his "passion" for business in his decision not to enter the 2012 Republican field. In trademark Trump fashion, he maintained he could have won the election.
    First Huckabee stepped out, now Trump. Looks like the field is narrowing.

    I am not surprised after the beating he got at the WHCD by the President and Seth Meyers. Plus, I never really considered him a serious contender anyways.

    I wouldn't take the WHCD or the presentations made during it very seriously if I were considering a run for president.

    I think he probably realized that he's not going to garner the votes needed, even if he'll say otherwise for the sake of his image. Probably concerned about tarnishing the "brand", whether that's a justified concern or not, considering his other day-to-day behaviors.

    I am so disappointed. I was looking forward to all the hair jokes and for the pre-ordained Trump blow up on the campaign trail.

    I saw something saying it was because NBC threatened to find someone else to do The Apprentice.

    That is true, but his issue going in was the birther issue. The President realized it and then at the dinner Trump got railed about it. It was pretty obvious his time was done.
