I just found evidence that Donald Trump at least considered running in the upcoming presidential election 7 year ago. In December 2004 his organization registered the domain "trump2012.com":
The Trump Organization LLC
725 Fifth Avenue
New York, New York 10022
Registered through: GoDaddy.com, Inc.
Domain Name: TRUMP2012.COM

Afraid he would choose Hillary Clinton as his running mate.
Well, he hated W and now he hates Zero. I think he could beat Zero like a red-headed stepchild, too. Nature DOES abhor a vacuum, and few of the other Pubbies seem to want to step up to the plate.
Run Donald Run. We need you!
With positions like that, I don't know any true conservative who would ever support Trump.
The big question I have is “Is he electable?” He’s a hell of a business man and very direct in his opinions but will the people vote for him?
He’s working for Hillary. All his donations are to the worst democrats like Reid and RINOs.
Some say “that’s the cost of business” but if that’s true, why are there NO donations to good candidates?
Some people are having smoke blown up their rear end AGAIN.
Ther probably registered TRUMP2008.COM at the same time too and it’s lapsed. $10 for a just in case. Means nothing.
Did he also register Trump2016 and Trump2020 and TrumpJr2024. ;-)
Did you check ‘04, ‘08, ‘16 and ‘20 too? !!!!!!!!!
a RINO....a crony capitalist elitist....
But John Kerry already had a running mate.
Of course he’s not electable. He would be seen as a joke candidate.
If the GOP are planning to lose (which they are if they’re planning Romney), they would love this guy, because he can use his own money to lose.
I did. See above
Never trust a man with a comb-over.. He is trying to “trick” you..
Well, he's number 2 under Romney
That appears to be the choice at this point
On one of the shows, I think BOR, he said he is against abortion.
me too.. I’m tired of the milquetoast republican candidates who are afraid to offend.. Trump’s interview on the Today show was awsome.. he doesn’t take crap from anyone including the MSM.. he reminds me of Reagan when he fired the PATCO strikers and stood up and grabbed the mic in the republican debate and demanded to be heard
When he set that site up was he planning to run as a Democrat or Independent because from records I have seen he did not register as Republican again until 2009? His party affiliation changes every few years.
He has also stated that the business community should pick and choose which illegal aliens get to continue breaking the law. He also has a history of using eminent domain for his personal gain.
Those polls are name recognition at this point. You could add Reagan’s name to the list and he’d come in first despite being dead.
