No one has talked him out of it, so it looks like Donald Trump is making a real attempt at running for President, according to The Washington Times.
Trump took the first step this week by forming a presidential exploratory committee and releasing a long-winded monologue–pardon, an official statement–on why he believes he’s the right man to lead the nation.
“I have a great love for our country, but it is a country that is in serious trouble. We have lost the respect of the entire world. Americans deserve better than what they get from their politicians – who are all talk and no action! I have built a great company, created thousands of jobs and built a tremendous net worth with some of the finest and most prestigious assets in the world – and very little debt! All Americans deserve the same opportunity,” he said.
He added that, though America has a lot to repair, he’s the only one who can successfully accomplish its goals:
“Our real unemployment rate is staggering while our manufacturing base is eroding on a daily basis. We must rebuild our infrastructure, control our borders, support local control of education, greatly strengthen our military, care for our veterans and put Americans back to work! We must stop other countries from totally taking advantage of our representatives who are being out-negotiated at every turn. I am the only one who can make America truly great again!”
Trump won’t be renewing his contract for reality show The Apprentice, presumably to focus on these lofty political aspirations.
He’s scheduled to meet with politicians, veterans, and business leaders in New Hampshire tomorrow (March 19).
