Donald Trump is not running for president.

"After considerable deliberation and reflection, I have decided not to pursue the office of the Presidency," Trump said in a statement Monday. "This decision does not come easily or without regret; especially when my potential candidacy continues to be validated by ranking at the top of the Republican contenders in polls across the country," the real estate mogul and reality show star continued.

After seeing his reactions at the WH press dinner it was clear he is too thin-skinned to run for or to serve as POTUS.

So ... so ... so Trump was just doing this for the publicity all along?

Hey, Trumpettes - I'll throw some crows on the barbie for you.

Huck not running...Trump not running...this is beginning to look like a very good news day. Now if Allen West said he WAS running, that would really put the icing on the cupcake.

I think this is unfortunate. Trump was the only one who could speak over the media. That being said, Trump would not have been able to turn this country around because I really think it is too late.

First it was Huckabee. Now Trump.

Now if we can sweep Romney and Newt out of the way - the GOP field will look a lot better.

Yep that was the end. Many who supported him thought he would be able to deal with the media, and that showed that he couldn't....game over.

Bret Baier just said Herman Cain gets the benefit. I agree. Right now I am supporting Cain. If Mitch Daniels runs I will vote for him in a heartbeat. I live in Illinois and I know what is going on in Indiana he has done a hell of a job.

Trump proved me wrong, it was all about ratings for "The Apprentice".

Donald, you're fired!!!

Palin was smart waiting to announce.

Hey - smirk at Trump all you want. But if it weren’t for Donald Trump - Osama bin Laden will still be alive.

Yeah, I’m serious.

If it weren’t for Donald Trump - Osama bin Laden will still be alive.
