Donald Trump says he may run for U.S. president - CTV News

Quote:

WASHINGTON Donald Trump says he's thinking about running for president, saying "everybody's ripping off the United States."

The real-estate mogul tells ABC television in an interview he doesn't actually want to run, but says he's worried about the country's future and thinks he could be the person to stand up to America's rivals.

He singled out China for criticism in the interview, accusing Beijing of manipulating its currency to gain unfair advantage of the United States in global trade competition.

He has shown interest in the past in running for president, in both 1988 and 2000.

But in the interview, Trump said, "I am thinking about things."

He said he expects to decide by June and said he'd likely run as a Republican if he enters the race.

No surprise there... the US political scene is a side show anyways, so he'd fit right in.

He'd be able to save money by not having to have Secret Service agents around him. His bullet-proof hair would stop any bullets that would be heading his way.

Well, if you want to go that route, Obama's hair - or the lack or shortness of it, fittingly - looks like a helmet that used to be worn by the Wermacht.

He'd probably save that catch phrase for when he declares war.

"Mr. Iran, we've had enough of your crap around here....." *squints and scrunches up his face in preparation..*

".... YOU'RE FIRED!!!!"

We've already had a Reagan and two Bush's - that's bad enough.

gopher, none of the ones you named were so full of themselves as to remind the ones that they beat that "I won, you lost!" as your egomaniac hero, Barack Hussain Obama.

Is there a reason why you feel the need to spell out Obama's full name so often, Mr. Yukon Underdunk Terwilliger Jack the Third?

First, congratulations on your shallow attempt at humour.

Second, Barack Hussain Obama IS the guy's full name. I never heard that he was ashamed of it. I never heard that he felt guilty about it.

So, why are you?

trump as president would just be another corporate guy running things, along with all the corporations
who run things when any republican president is aboard.
a bunch of business men seeing to their own needs first, and yeah, oh yeah, there are people out there
aren't there, we should throw them some crumbs now, so they stop hounding us about trying to please
them for anything, anytime.

what a joke that would be, but typical u.s. politics I guess.

the american people did wake up and vote for a 'real' down to earth person last election, I thought
they never would come to their senses, but they did, good for them.

Duh it's his full name, and obviously he's not ashamed of his name, nor should he...... nor am I ashamed or guilty about it..... thanks for that wonderful assumption though.

The point being is that how many other people do you spell out their full names during a post?

I've only seen you do this towards Obama, for the only logical reason being his middle name is Hussain, which is some poor attempt at trying to give the impression to more weak minded fools that he's somehow evil and bad because it's related to Saddam and isn't as American as "Walker", "Sidney", "Louise" or "Wilson" ~ (George, John, Sarah or Ronald's middle name)

Though maybe I should do a test and just continue to spell out your name in full until it bugs the hell out of you in order to see the point I am trying to make...... not that I'd expect you to get the point anyways, but it'll be fun, Mr. Yukon Underdunk Terwilliger Jack the Third.

Unfortunately their senses were lost again about three months after Obama was made president and they didn't see everything magically turn around at the push of a button and because of Obama not being able to magically whisk away all of the crap Bush left Americans with..... suddenly it's now all Obama's fault and it's time to vote in another Republican to continue screwing everything up even further.

They showed signs of progress..... and now things are slightly worse off then they were when Bush left...... but is that Obama's fault?

Partly..... but I think it has more to do with the Republicans being sore losers and completely refusing to work with the Democrats to get anything done, to roadblock any type of change or progress to improve lives in the US.... and then turn around to the public and blame the Democrats and Obama for things taking too long and not being done..... all the while, riling up the public and forming crazy political parties like the tea baggers, loaded with dumbasses who don't know anything beyond the napkin-sized point form list of what their religion they think they believe says.

And it seems like people down there believe this crap and pit all the blame on the Democrats and Obama, including all the crap left over for the Republicans and Bush when they ruled with an iron fist.

But people down there have to remember:

DON'T BELIEVE THA HYPE!!!

Trump Entertainment Resorts files for bankruptcy

Another day, another Donald Trump-related financial crisis.

After years of financial problems, Trump Entertainment Resorts (external - login to view) (NASDAQ: TRMP (external - login to view)) has filed for bankruptcy for the third time in its history. The company's last bankruptcy came in November of 2004.

The company reported assets (external - login to view) of less than $50 million and debts of less than $500 million. Nine affiliates of the company also filed for bankruptcy, including Trump Plaza Associates, Trump Marina Associates and Trump Taj Mahal Associate. Including all affiliates, the company said it had consolidated assets of $2.1 billion and debt of $1.7 billion as of December 31st of 2008.

Donald Trump has become infamous for telling business mogul wannabes "You're fired!" every week on primetime television. Yet, after Trump's casino operations filed bankruptcy for the second time this past November, many have wondered if it isn't time for board members to give Trump a pink slip. Despite the company failings, Trump will remain as chairman and CEO and continue to collect a $2 million dollar paycheck. So...how does a CEO decide to file for bankruptcy twice and still come out at the top of the heap?

After careful consideration, I say Nope, not this or anytime Donald.

''I won you lost''

You again forgot that it was your hero Bush who boasted of ''mission accomplished'' just like his father did when he won in Kuwait. Wrong again Jack. Keep trying ...

''congratulations on you continually being a grump''

As always, Jack is full of hate inspired complaints about President Obama but has yet to offer so much as one solution to the mess that exists today thanks to Bush. All he keeps saying is BLAME OBAMA!

He can keep repeating that mantra from here to Kingdom come but it is not going to convince anyone except for himself.

it would be wise for the american people to stay with an intelligent, real person, who understands
people who are not wealthy or corporate, and is also very saavy all round with anyone he communicates
with.
to have donald trump as president is just going back into the buffoon territory, they just left, when
bushy moved out.

It would be nice if they ever found such a person.
