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.

Oh my heart be still I can only hope.....
Of course not. This was all a maneuver. And beautifully done. When the chips are counted, ask Rush. And Sarah.
Some *conservatives* will be laughing all the way to the WH ;).
If it weren’t for Donald Trump - Osama bin Laden will still be alive.
Would not will.
If it weren’t for Donald Trump - Osama bin Laden WOULD still be alive.
I 100% agree with you. Obama needed something to "trump" Trump and killing OBL was that move.
Now we need a solid conservative to rally behind.
Romney needs to go away and every other RINO.
There was no way that women in this country would ever vote for a guy who had a supermodel wife anyway.
I liked him in the beginning, but the more I learned about him, the less impressed I became.
>> Was there someone who thought he WAS going to run?
I confess that *I* figured he was going to run.
(However I also figured — should I say hoped? — there was no way he could win the nomination.)
An ego the size of the Titanic doesn’t stop or turn on a dime.
But by dropping out he’s shown more sense than I gave him credit for.
An early thinning of the herd was in order.
Well... bye. (Where’s that pic of Coyote Bill)
And I, Carne Nachoman, am announcing that I am not running for President.
Two down, fifteen to go.
I think he was in cahoots with Obama all along on the BC issue.
(1) West is not running. I heard him interviewed on the radio in Atlanta several weeks ago (he was raised in Atlanta), and he was pretty adamant that he is not running. He wasn’t coy nor did he leave any doors open for changing his mind. He bluntly said he’s not running—period. He made it sound like even if he was drafted at the convention, he would turn down the nomination.
West is not running. Wishful thinking time is over; focus on candidates that are in the race, not on the sidelines.
(2) Trump proved one thing—going directly at Obama (hard) works. Obama is vunerable on the issues, and if the GOP would go after Obama on the issues they will win.
The McCain dance from the 2008 election (let’s get along and not say be too negative) is a loser—it will only result in an Obama re-election.
"So, I make you this promise: that I will continue to voice my opinions loudly and help to shape our politicians thoughts.
I will not shy away from expressing the opinions that so many of you share yet dont have a medium through which to articulate."
Did you actually read his statement? It is at least truthful. Something very much missing with the political hacks on both sides.
Give it up. Trump had no bearing on that. You got snookered by a flim-flam man.
I told you this was all a publicity stunt for him to get free camera time. NBC has known for over a month that he was re-newing his contract with them, but kept it secret.
‘Trump's Chumps’ someone named them.
He made believe he was stealing WWF (Wrestling) from Vince McMahan a few years back. That was a act too LOL.
How about the Trump Chump freepers that called Michelle Malkin and Ann Coulter liberals compared to Trump? LOL.
Yep, but I’m surprised he won’t run as an independent to peel off some Republican votes.
You're kidding, right? His brief foray into politics was just a stunt to get him publicity and TV face time. The entire exercise was dishonest and a fraud.
