Exclusive: Trump to Announce His Run for President
Newsmax ^ | April 12, 2011 | Ronald Kessler

Posted on 04/13/2011 6:28:02 PM PDT by RobinMasters

If you wonder whether Donald Trump is serious about running for president, tune in to the finale of “The Celebrity Apprentice” on May 15.

Trump plans to say on the NBC show that he will be holding a press conference in the next few days. At that press conference in the Trump Tower in New York, Trump will be announcing his candidacy for the presidency.

Even then, many will snicker that it’s all a publicity stunt. But that defies the facts and common sense.

Of all the people on the planet, Donald Trump is the last person who needs more publicity. And if he is riding a groundswell of support, why would he—or anyone else—decide not to run?

Since writing the first story in January to report that Trump will definitely run, I have been amazed at how much the idea of a Trump presidency is catching on across the political spectrum. As I wrote in my story, Don’t Underestimate Donald Trump for President, he can be outrageous and boastful. But when it comes to a successful run at the presidency, don’t count him out.

Trump's mission in life is to "Enhance the Trump Brand".

That is a fact and running for President therefore makes all the sense in the world.

All you anti-birthers can blame Boehner for Trumps having to run to get done the job that our Congress failed to do.

He’s not serious about beating obama because he said that if he doesn’t win the GOP nomination, he will run as an Independent.

What do you trust more...

a) That Boehner will call hearings to confirm Obama’s eligibility and demand that he release all of his records.

or

b) the comb over of Trump

Maybe. Of course, two things to consider:

1. I’m old enough to recall all the enthusiasm over Ross Perot too. All RP did in the end was split the Republican vote and allow Clinton to win. Trump running has that same kind of feel.
2. I bet that Trump has all kinds of skeletons in his closet and they’re probably not too hard to find. Once the MSM turns up the heat, he may be toast in record time.

I agree with you IF Trump runs as an Indie. But if he wins the GOP nomination, he's not going to be another nice-guy like John McCain, who fired some of his own people for criticizing Obama. Trump will be in it to win.

Trump is one of a small number who could run for President, pay for it all himself, and stil not really feel it. That gives him a certain amount of freedom that I think will be very interesting to see play out. He doesn’t need to fame or presige - he’s already got that. And he’s already got a much nicer house ;-)

Bring it on!

Trump said that he’d eliminate the Department of Education and impose a 25% Tax on China imports. If he keeps that up, he’ll be the next president. That would be the first time for the nonpolitical class to really be heard through the vote. They’re not as politically correct as the elite folks want to believe them to be.

The fact that the LEFT IS GOING BALLISTIC and targeting him you know instantly the he is the front runner. I don’t care what any poll says.

The fact that he has respect for our Constitution AND IS NOT AFRAID TO BE LABELED A RACIST (like all the rest of the Republican Candidates) gives me great respect for him.

You can rest assure none of the other Republican candidates will ever say anything. Notice how SILENT all the other Republican candidates are about the Birth issue.

Trump can get more votes than any other Republican candidate. You can count on that.

Me too. Conservatives, keep your powder dry. In the primary we need to coalesce around two or three candidates. You candidates if you are not getting traction with the voters...get out of the race. Don't split the conservative vote and allow a RINO to be nominated. I don't trust Trump.

From watching the initial video of Trump on The View, Trump did not sound like a "born in Kenya" believer. His point was "WTF are you trying to hide, Obama? Release it, already!"

Afterwards, Trump has hit the Kenya button but I think he is just playing with Obama like a cat plays with a mouse. It's fun to watch. :-)

My opinion is that Obama was born in Hawaii but that the long form release would be very embarrasing for him by probably exposing him as a fraud that was born "Barry Dunham" ...... With a "Single" mother ..... Since polygamy is illegal in Hawaii.

Anybody notice that the same anti-birthers telling us that Obama lies on everything except his eligibility to be President were the same ones accusing us of wearing lead pijamas during the nuclear crisis in Japan.

"Oh don't worry! There's more radiation coming from your microwave than there is twenty yards from those plants. This will not even come close to a Three Mile Island so go take off those lead pijamas and go to bed. Let us adults take care of things."

The only good thing that came from the anti-birthers and Trump is that they've stopped bashing Sarah Palin for a while. And can you blame them? Their candidate Romney has entered the stage with such McCainisms as "Obama has passed my citizenship test and he is American." His supporters come out masking as "conservatives" and "constitutional conservatives" as they try to redefine Romney as the right-winger of the right wing. Yet they are easily exposed when they demand that republicans "forget about the US Constitution and just vote on conservative issues"

That's like telling us to take Ex-lax and Keopectate at the same time.

I trust Trump more than I would Romney's citizenship test given that he's been caught employing illegals at his home more than once. So, who is Romney to conclude that Obama's legit?

Just like the pro-amnesty crowd did to the American Patriots calling them racists they are now doing to the "birthers".

Trump would not even have been where he is in the polls if Boehner had done his job and forced Obama to prove his eligiblity, That's a shame.

In the meantime the latest news from Japan is that the nuclear crisis is at if not past that which took place in Chernobyl.

Fukushima me once, shame on you.

Fukushima me twice, shame on me

Well, perhaps but like Perot, who gave voice and hope to Americans concerned about NAFTA and GATT, Trump can do the same for Americans pissed off about all these U.S. companies who do their hiring in Red China and India(because they prefer compliant, slave laborers over US) and then get a boatload of hefty tax breaks courtesy of the stinking Congress.
Giving voice to the voiceless is no small thing; it takes ‘nads and if Trump wants to do it, good on him.

Obama proved that the White House can be bought. He manipulated his own party rules (particularly wrt Michigan) and raised unlimited money (likely overseas money and illegal money) via is credit card website which never verified names and addresses, opening the door for anyone overseas to buy 1000’s of prepaid cards and donating anonymously.

Trump’s life has been to expand the Trump brand but you have to consider this ambition something a lot bigger. At least I hope he does, if he is running. When you look around the world, celebrity has worked to put people into positions of power. Arnold in California, or the wrestler in Minnesota, and the new president of Haiti, the Comedian Senator, and plenty of other place.

I think a direct, non politician, is exactly what the doctor ordered, though I am not endorsing Trump per se. What is interesting about Trump is that he could run in the party or out (like Perot), but I think he thinks he can win the nomination. The GOP field of prospects is weak. I think he thinks he can win the nomination AND then, if he does, he can create a Constitutional crisis by challenging the eligibility of his opponent.

Only so he can use it for his own gain.
Look up his history of eminent domain abuses. He loves to use the government to take the property of private businesses and homes of individuals to use for himself for important things like, say, parking lots for his casino.

He isn’t to be trusted. He was extremely left on most issues up until about two weeks ago when he suddenly ‘saw the light’. He flipped flopped so hard, he made Romney look stationary.

.........why would any smart person who wants to win the GOP nomination say up front that he will back down if he doesn’t win???

HERE’S THE BOTTOM LINE:
IF Trump chooses to run, then the GOP have NO CHOICE but to nominate him, because IF he does run as an independent then the Dems win FOR SURE. Trump is in the catbird seat and he knows it!

Perot was a male feminist (outspokenly pro-abortion) who wanted another 50-cent gas tax. His swing voters were stealth socialists who voted for Hillary by proxy (Bill). They’ve taken over the Republican Party. Trump is nothing like Perot in those respects for sure.

If that is what is on his long-form then Obama was willing to commit forgery in order to cover that up.

And the HDOH has committed misprision of felony, falsification of records, and a host of other crimes.

Both of those statements are already known to be true, BTW. I just doubt whether these people would go to these lengths to cover up illegitimacy, which doesn’t even really have a stigma attached to it at this point.

But as long as we’ve got the HDOH breaking laws and rules to cover for Obama, it could be ANYTHING on that birth certificate, if one exists at all. And that should be troubling to everybody.

Something people need to realize: The HDOH has indirectly confirmed that the certificate number and “date filed” on the Factcheck COLB are incompatible. If Obama ever had a legally-valid birth certificate from Hawaii he would have a valid BC#/”date filed” combination to show the world - even if he altered some other “embarrassing” content on his BC (either by forgery or by a legal amendment).

For there to be incompatible BC# and “date filed” on the Factcheck COLB it means not only that the Factcheck COLB is a forgery, but that Obama doesn’t even know what BC#/”date filed” combination would be legitimate. IOW, he doesn’t HAVE a legitimate BC#/”date filed” combination to look off of. Because he has never had a legally valid Hawaii BC.

And THAT is explosive. That is why they are illegally hiding his BC#.

The people at the HDOH are either totally incompetent, or crooks, or (more likely) both. The rest of the country needs a way to defend ourselves against this lawlessness.
