    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Real estate mogul and conservative provocateur Donald Trump has a concise, clear message for 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney: You blew it in the last election, so dont even try to run for president again. No. I dont think he should run. He had his chance and he blew it, Trump told Breitbart News during a phone interview on Tuesday. He had a great chance of winning. He should have won.

"We have so many problems and we have so little leadership," Trump said at the session in suburban Washington. "It's all about the leadership." He cited China's move this week to devalue its currency against the American dollar, as well as Russian President Vladimir Putin's assault on Ukraine as examples of the United States' decline as a world power. "The reason why they're doing it is because our...

Steele insisted that Trump had moved on from his insistence that the...
