Trump Joins The Dirty Dozen

No way will Donald Trump become president, but at least he will make things interesting.
From Fox News:
New York real estate mogul and reality TV star Donald Trump on Tuesday declared himself a candidate for the Republican nomination for president, launching his against-the-odds campaign after teasing one for years. 
“I am officially running for president of the United States,” he said from inside his signature Trump Tower in midtown Manhattan. “We are going to make our country great again.”
In a strong pro-business, pro-military speech, the unabashed Trump vowed to stop the Islamic State, keep Iran from building a nuclear weapon, repeal ObamaCare, build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, repeal President Obama’s executive orders on immigration and spend more on infrastructure.
“Nobody could be tougher on ISIS than Donald Trump,” he said in a roughly 45-minute speech, peppered with occasional, off-the-cuff remarks.  
"I'm really rich," Trump said while waving a financial statement that showed his net worth at nearly $9 billion. “And that’s not bragging. That’s the kind of mindset you need.”
Though he faces an uphill challenge in trying to win the GOP nomination, the 69-year-old Trump adds an undeniable element of surprise to the race.
He joins the field of 11 other GOP candidates, with Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker expected to enter the race in mid-July and several other hopefuls still considering. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush announced his bid a day earlier.
And he could be an aggressive -- and interesting -- player on the primary debate stage, should he stay among the top-10 candidates in the polls.
Too bad he will never get the GOP nomination because a debate of Trump and Hillary would be such a 1 sided debate- Trump would kick Clinton's butt.
I think Trump would be a good president because he would treat government like a business and the guy has created 10,000's of jobs if not hundreds of thousands of jobs, so he knows how to produce, unlike Hillary who has created no jobs in her adult life, other than the paid employees at the Clinton Foundation Slush Fund.
But he has also put his mouth in his mouth more than once, he may not want to put a lot of his own money in the campaign and people may not want to donate campaign cash to a zillionaire and he has more than a few enemies.
But he will be more interesting than the entire presidential field put together.

  1. Personally, I think it's a stunt - he has reality show commitments after all. NBC (National Broadcast Commies) has too much at stake to let him go or Obama to leave.

    This will likely turn into a reality show of how The Donald runs for office.
