Donald Trump to run for US presidency


Oh dear. The Apprentice boss Donald Trump has announced his candidacy for the US Presidential Campaign for 2016, after backing out of a previous tilt for 2012.

Announcing his candidacy at Trump Tower, the business mogul said, “Our country needs a truly great leader, and we need a truly great leader now. We need a leader that wrote The Art of the Deal; we need a leader that can bring back our jobs, manufacturers, military, to take care of our vets.

“We need somebody that can take the brand of the United States and make it great again. Ladies and gentlemen, I am officially running for President of the United States. We are going to make our country great again!

“I will be the greatest jobs president that God ever created,” he continued. “I’ll bring back our jobs from China, Mexico, Japan, so many places. I’ll bring back our jobs and I’ll bring back our money!”

And possibly some faded celebrities like Gary Busey, La Toya Jackson, Lou Ferrigno and Meatloaf as his advisors?

Trump, affiliated with the Republican Party, used Neil Young’s song Rockin’ in the Free World during his speech.

In February, Trump did not renew his television contract for The Apprentice, effectively firing himself.

  1. “Trump, affiliated with the Republican Party, used Neil Young’s song Rockin’ in the Free World during his speech.”

    Neil Young fans should note that Trump did so without permission (and presumably, no idea of Young’s politics).

  2. He’s the 12th person to announce their candidacy (and there are 9 more who have publically expressed an interest). Only a few are serious, the rest are using the process to push factional interests with the party and nationally.

    Trump is targeting white, poorly educated males who will believe any crazy idea, because no one else is.

    Trump is targeting

  3. Christ could you imagine. I liked trump and the celeb apprentice but I lost respect for him when he just went at Obama and his birth certificate. Just because you are rich doesn’t make you a good president.

  4. Secret Squïrrel

    Trump or Bush number three? I predict that if either one of those gets to be president, they’ll have to beef up the Mexican border to prevent people leaving.

    • I think you’re being a bit harsh on Trump, I’m sure he’s widely held in high regard by Mexicans after calling all of them rapists and/or drug mules/smugglers. That’ll play magnificently to the Southern republican states though.

  5. This is like Christmas for the like of Conan and Fallon, comedians are going to love the next few years with a Clinton, Bush and now Trump all running for US President!

  6. Not surprising, he’s been getting more politically involved and outspoken since Obama came to office starting with his stupid demand that Obama release his birth certificate to prove his citizenship.

    Just a shame John Stewart’s retiring soon, as he would’ve had a field day with this. Hell Letterman probably would’ve enjoyed himself as well given he had that long-running “Trump or Monkey” bit when Apprentice became a hit.
