  • Donald Trump: I’m Ready To Run For NY Gov, But I Want Clear Path To GOP Nomination

    The drama surrounding Donald Trump's potential campaign for governor appears headed for an extended run—at least until Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino makes a formal announcement about running. Trump, appearing on an Albany radio station this morning, said he is “ready, willing and able” to run for governor but will not do so if Astorino or anybody else enters the race. Trump also ruled out taking his potential candidacy to the state GOP convention in the spring. “I really want unity,” said Trump, who is scheduled to address a GOP fundraiser in Buffalo Friday. “I want to go in there...

    New York's attorney general sued Donald Trump for $40 million Saturday, saying the real estate mogul helped run a phony "Trump University" that promised to make students rich but instead steered them into expensive and mostly useless seminars, and even failed to deliver promised apprenticeships. Trump shot back that the Democrat's lawsuit is false and politically motivated. Attorney General Eric Schneiderman says many of the 5,000 students who paid up to $35,000 thought they would at least meet Trump but instead all they got was their picture taken in front of a life-size picture of "The Apprentice" TV star. "Trump...

He says Sarah Palin would make a better king-maker and Huckabee should stick with his successful Fox News show.

    The greatest president in my lifetime was Ronald Reagan. I proudly voted for him twice. In 1980 and 1984, as just about 99% of those who voted for him, I was unaware he had been a Democrat (as I had been). I was also unaware Reagan had been a union president, or as Governor of California, he signed the Therapeutic Abortion Act of 1967 and had contributed to Democrats. But so what? By today’s standards, the SIX time union president Reagan would be a Democrat union “thug.” But who cares? None of this would have made the slightest bit of...

    Fresh off the allegations that Donald Trump's various "birther" and affirmative action conspiracies about President Obama were racist, now the spotlight is being shone on Trump's long history of sexist, if not downright sleazy, comments about women. In a column for the Washington Post, Anna Holmes brings up the "Trump Rule," as described by beauty queen Carrie Prejean, in her book about the Miss USA pageant. According to Prejean, the Miss USA pageant had a requirement that contestants parade in front of pageant owner Donald Trump so he could separate out those he found sexually appealing from those he did...

As of Tuesday afternoon, the poll had received 1,026,891 responses, the largest poll ever fielded by Newsmax.

The Illinois Review, a coservative blog, reports that Trump gave Rahm Emanuel $50,000 in December 2010. Those numbers came out in January, 2011, but are being pointed out now because of Trump's possible presidential bid. This isn't the first time Trump has donated to candidates in Illinois, but it is the largest contribution. State election records show Trump also gave $5,000 to George Ryan, the Republican...

    In bridge, a trump card is held in reserve for winning a trick. In politics, Donald Trump is anything but reserved and appears to think he might trick enough voters to win the next presidential election. There's plenty to draw on when critiquing a possible Trump candidacy. His multiple marriages (three) and affairs provide fodder for the media and contrast poorly with President Barack Obama's "family values" image as husband of one wife and father of young daughters, whom he clearly loves. In recent weeks, Trump has been trying to gain a toehold in the evangelical community, which is especially...

The liberal media will use all its powers to destroy ANY GOP candidate for president. That is a given.

    For a loosely organized coalition, the tea party has displayed remarkable unity since it emerged in early 2010. But that discipline is being tested in the run-up to the 2012 GOP presidential primary as three top Republicans aggressively court the conservative movement. Those Republicans – former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, Rep. Michele Bachmann and billionaire developer Donald Trump – are motivated by distinct agendas that may or may not include a presidential campaign. But all three would-be candidates are forcing tea party activists to make some important decisions as they try to grow into a more enduring force in American...

    If one were drawing up a list of Donald Trump’s first principles of business, “Fake it ’Til You Make It” would probably be at the top. One of the young Trump’s more clever business tactics involved hiring workers and machines to push dirt around his frequently stalled or underfunded real-estate developments to present visiting potential investors with the illusion of industry. And he has developed a long-running reflex to offer unsolicited — and largely unverifiable — assessments of the strength and virility of his portfolio to anybody who will listen, perhaps in an effort to erase memories of the four...

    Some may have declared the issue with President Obama’s birth certificate to be “over,” but apparently potential Republican candidate for President Donald Trump didn’t receive the memo. He called into Fox News today and revealed that in his mind at least, “I think I’ve made my decision,” as he prepares multiple visits to the primary states of Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina. In addition to repeating his claims that President Obama is a “disaster,” he also threw some salt in the eyes of conservative heavy-hitters like Republican Congressman Paul Ryan and Karl Rove.

    Trump is a Gateway Candidate for disgruntled Obama supporters who cannot bring themselves to move directly to the GOP. Trump is draining support from Obama and making it cool to bash the President. Trump is not a political hack, nor is he a racist, nor is he an extremist.

    Republican Pete Hoekstra, who served 18 years in the U.S. House, tells Newsmax that Donald Trump is the only potential GOP presidential candidate who has “captured the imagination” and says a Trump candidacy could “resonate very, very well” with the voters in 2012. The veteran lawmaker, who was the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, also asserts it is just a matter of time before Islamic extremists attempt another attack in the U.S., charges that the Obama administration’s policy on oil drilling must share the blame for soaring gasoline prices, and says the country can’t survive another four years...

    Donald Trump has a deal for the President: He'll release his tax returns if Obama releases his birth certificate. The billionaire businessman and aspiring presidential candidate laid out the conditions for his financial records disclosure Tuesday. "Maybe I'm going to do the tax returns when Obama does his birth certificate … I'd love to give my tax returns. I may tie my tax returns into Obama's birth certificate," he told ABC News' George Stephanopoulos. Obama revealed Monday that the First Family shelled out $453,770 to the IRS for 2010. Presidents and potential candidates traditionally reveal how much they pay in...

    The American Thinker ^ | 4/18/11 | C. Edmund Wright
    Donald Trump is jumping ugly with Barack Obama -- and conservative voters should cheer this and would-be candidates should take notes. Frankly, I love the whole thing. That, however, should be the extent of conservatives' flirtation with the real estate billionaire. As demonstrated for all to hear on Friday's Rush Limbaugh Show, Trump presents an incoherent political philosophy that is built mainly on the Perot-esque notion that we should vote for Trump because, well, he is Trump. Actually, part of me finds this very refreshing, but as a conservative I just can't get past the incoherent philosophy thing. Trump is...

    Is he a conservative or Republican in “name only”? Is he running, not running? Is he a clandestine Democratic operative bent on dividing the GOP’s presidential vote in 2012, or just a very rich man who enjoys political fisticuffs on a global stage? The mysterious aspirations of Donald Trump continue to provide fodder to press prose.

    Newsmax: “Somebody said, ‘What’s his [Obama’s] biggest asset?’ He is politically lucky. He really is. He’s led a charmed life. Well, the media is letting him get away with it.” Trump went on to discuss Obama’s past associations with retired college professor and co-founder of the Weather Underground Bill Ayers, the controversial Rev. Jeremiah Wright and convicted real estate developer and political fundraiser Tony Rezko. Trump asserted that Ayers wrote Obama’s best-selling book “Dreams of My Father” and that Obama sat in Wright’s congregation for 20 years while Wright “spewed hate against white people.” Obama dropped his friends when the...
