Afraid so, my wife's company did some lighting for him (Trump Taj Mahal) and it took a lawsuit to collect the money for the job. Seems he did that with most contractors working for him.

The only thing "RUNNING" is Donald Trump's mouth...

Birther, running for President, cares about the middle income and poor.. lol

Doesn't this guy have enough money for a decent rug on that head, has he not heard of Hair Club for Men, maybe he should buy them out..

Seriously cares about the middle man and poor... his Dad did, owned 100's of low income houses, the Donald Trump tore down.

Anyone remember in New Jersey his million dollar fight for a litle old ladies home blocking development of one of is Casino's, eventually she died and they he picked up the land cheap.

Trump is nothing but an attention wh.ore playing the media to promote his name and his latest Fired program with a bunch of has bin actors that are trying to grab at fame one last time.

Thank God we're not Americans whenever you look at our (useless) politicians....

That anyone could even consider, in their wildest fantasies, Donald Trump........

Why, he'd be almost as useless as Obama.

Damn I wish McCain had won that election.

"Donald Trump says he may run for U.S. president"

Well, why not? If a totally unqualified twice-quitter communist organizer can run and win, why not Donald Trump.

If Americans do vote for the Donald it will be a sure sign of just how sick our society is. The Donald is a fake, self inflating egotist and barely hanging on to the fortune he inherited. He is so vain he won't even visit a hair replacement specialist and does his funny comb over.

LOL! He would have brought on Armageddon and you'd likely be hiding in a bomb shelter while soiling your underpants.

As for Chump, I mean Trump, there is talk that his draft board gave him an exemption because of his wealth. It'll be interesting to see how this issue evolves.

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama exacted his revenge Saturday after weeks of attacks from his would-be Republican challenger Donald Trump, joking that the billionaire businessman could bring change to the White House, transforming it from a stately mansion into a tacky casino with a whirlpool in the garden.
With Trump in attendance, Obama used the White House Correspondents’ Association annual dinner to mock the reality TV star’s presidential ambitions.
The president said Trump has shown the acumen of a future president, from firing Gary Busey on a recent episode of Celebrity Apprentice to focusing so much time on conspiracy theories about Obama’s birthplace.
After a week when Obama released his long-form Hawaii birth certificate, he said Trump could now focus on the serious issues, from whether the moon landing actually happened to “where are Biggie and Tupac?”
“No one is prouder to put this birth certificate matter to rest than ‘the Donald,’” Obama said, referring to Trump’s claims the same day that he was responsible for solving the issue.
For Trump’s decision to fire actor Busey instead of rock singer Meat Loaf from his TV show earlier this month, Obama quipped: “These are the types of decisions that would keep me up at night. Well handled, sir.”
And then, as a coup de grace, Obama showed a screen with his vision of how Trump could bring change to the White House. ‘Trump’ was prominently displayed in glittery letters and girls could be seen with cocktails on a Jacuzzi-augmented front lawn.
Trump chuckled at some of the earlier jokes, but was clearly less amused as comedian Seth Meyers picked up where Obama left off.
“Donald Trump often talks about running as a Republican, which is surprising,” said the Saturday Night Live actor, entrusted with providing some of the comedy for the evening. “I just assumed he was running as a joke.”
Trump stared icily at Meyers as he continued to criticize the real estate tycoon.
Obama and Trump found themselves in the same room after an intense week of attacks from Trump, who has piggybacked on the birther conspiracies and even Obama’s refusal to release his university grades to raise the profile of his possible presidential bid.
And the birth certificate was clearly the key punchline for the evening, which typically offers the president a chance to show off his humorous side and a town consumed by politics and partisanship to enjoy a lighthearted affair.
Obama’s presentation started after the wrestler Hulk Hogan’s patriotic anthem, “Real American,” played.
Images of Americana from Mount Rushmore to Uncle Sam were shown on the screen, alongside his birth certificate. And then he offered to show his live birth video, which turned out to be a clip from the Disney film, “The Lion King.”
On the serious side, Obama took time to thank the troops for their service overseas and noted that the people of the South, especially Alabama, have suffered heart-wrenching losses.
“The devastation is unbelievable and it is heartbreaking,” he said. He encouraged the journalists in the room to help tell the stories of those who have been hurt by the storms and saluted those who lost their lives while covering the news.
Other possible Republican presidential hopefuls in attendance were former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, Rep. Michele Bachmann and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. And stars such as Sean Penn and Scarlett Johansson also were among the more than 2,500 people who attended.
The association was formed in 1914 as a liaison between the press and the president. Every president since Calvin Coolidge has attended the dinner. Some of the proceeds from the dinner pay for journalism scholarships for college students.

If Trump decides to run for President he should - nay, must - run as Democrat. He has all the requirements, heck, the only requirement: Profane, vulgar sewer mouth.

Having said that, I watched the Obama Worship Service the other night. The President acted perfectly naturally, without pretensions. Just like any other 10 year old, or anyone with the mentality of a ten year old, would have acted: petulant, vengeful, childish and immature. Shortly after he and his wife's appearence with Oprah, which was right after he declared that he had more important things to do, which he did right after presenting his photo-shopped birth certificate, which was authenticated by forensic forgery expert, former news anchor, Dan Rather.

In contrast, Donald Trump behaved dignified, albeit visibly irritated by the oh, so Presidential imitation of a third rate comic by the Lying President, the act, which was presented right after the Disney video about the Lion King.

Some of the cheering celebrities present were also present when Ronald Wilson Reagan was declared to be a B-actor and an "amiable dunce". Or perhaps their parents, for whom the added years did not bring added wisdom.

The playing of "Real American" was admittedly an effort to convince the unconvinced. Those who were enamored by the President's comic talents asked: Is the President funny enough to give up his daytime job? Some said an enthusiastic "YES!", while cowboys from South Dakota in attendence yelled an equally enthusiastic Whoaaaa!" at the sight of Mount Rushmore and the unspoken but obvious implications by some of those present.

It was noted that guests from Alabama and New Orleans were seated at the same table, indicating this administration's intentions to follow the lead of the previous one, as it did, regarding the war in the Middle East.

Some guests expressed regret at the inevitability of the fact that the current guest of honor will have only one more time to attend this event in the future.

I live in an area chuck full of Republicans and they all call this guy a "Ding Bat." Maybe the name will fit? If BS were brass the Donald would own a complete symphony orchestra.

Donald is a very confusing character, I think he is just a rich guy (kid) playing around and will not officially run for president.

The Donald is a publicity *****, and if this presidential stuff helps him boost his tv ratings, and help him recover from his bankruptcies, well, that's all part of the game, isn't it?

The U.S. is in critical financial trouble at the present time and I would like to see someone in the O/President who understands the subject of money - spending and earning.

Trump might just be the man to put the nation back into sensible money earning power and the people back to work. We have sent
so many jobs to other nations creating wealth for them and are criticized if we do not "help" a nation in trouble such as war or natural
disaster. We cannot continue this role unless the people of the U.S. can afford their own care.

I can regress back to several president incumbents who were not money savvy - they were wealthy but had no idea how to nurture the
finances of the nation - and spent like we could just 'print more' and be safe.

Trump could very well be a surprise executive in the office - after what I have seen with the last couple of incumbents they are all
rubber stamps of what "they believe they should be doing" while being driven by a lack of personal financial knowledge.

Which of the last three knows money?: Clinton, Bush, Obama? None of them earned their way other than middle class knowledge - even Bush inherited wealth from family - not earned.

The only attribute I am looking for is a president who can put the U.S. back into financial earning power while still able to share benevolence to nations in need.

I think both Trump and GWBush were experienced in bankruptcies, if that's what you're after.

But only a pessimistic, gloom-and-doom liberal would fail to point out that both Bush and Trump have recovered and learned from their bankruptcies. And then went to rebuild to even greater success.

I guess that is the difference between a liberal and a normal person. A liberal would give up as soon as someone else's money runs out or affirmative action no longer works.

Could be, since I'm not a liberal, I can't speak for what a liberal would do.

Bankruptcy is an acceptable and rational business maneuver to recover from debt - at least these two men found a way back to fortune.

Well, if you're looking for a Jesse Ventura sort of character at the national level, he's your man. I have trouble believing that any credible republicans would support him and his ambitions for the White House. If anything, I could see him running as an independent.

LOL Trump is totally off the charts when trying to find "normal" - but perhaps he has a passion to help his nation out of its potential
bankruptcy.

I see him as totally independent - I doubt he fits any category either political or social (which might leave him free to sort out the mess
we are in down here.)
