Sounds like Donald Trump will not be running after all. Does this surprise you?

"After considerable deliberation and reflection, I have decided not to pursue the office of the Presidency. 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. I maintain the strong conviction that if I were to run, I would be able to win the primary and ultimately, the general election. I have spent the past several months unofficially campaigning and recognize that running for public office cannot be done half heartedly. Ultimately, however, business is my greatest passion and I am not ready to leave the private sector.

I want to personally thank the millions of Americans who have joined the various Trump grassroots movements and written me letters and e-mails encouraging me to run. My gratitude for your faith and trust in me could never be expressed properly in words. So, I make you this promise: that I will continue to voice my opinions loudly and help to shape our politician's thoughts. My ability to bring important economic and foreign policy issues to the forefront of the national dialogue is perhaps my greatest asset and one of the most valuable services I can provide to this country. I will continue to push our President and the country's policy makers to address the dire challenges arising from our unsustainable debt structure and increasing lack of global competitiveness. Issues, including getting tough on China and other countries that are methodically and systematically taking advantage of the United States, were seldom mentioned before I brought them to the forefront of the country's conversation. They are now being debated vigorously. I will also continue to push for job creation, an initiative that should be this country's top priority and something that I know a lot about. I will not shy away from expressing the opinions that so many of you share yet don't have a medium through which to articulate.

I look forward to supporting the candidate who is the most qualified to help us tackle our country's most important issues and am hopeful that, when this person emerges, he or she will have the courage to take on the challenges of the Office and be the agent of change that this country so desperately needs."

Thank you and God Bless America!
Donald J. Trump



Who is the strongest Republican candidate now? Who do our resident Republicans want to see in office? Who do our liberals want to see on the ballot?

They've been saying Trump wasn't going to run from the moment he announced...so why is this a big surprise to anyone?

***The republicans have nothing and will get nothing their strongest guys dropped out and said goodbye and the ones they have now they can't even agree on so who knows if they will even make it to the race on time.

No one had ever heard of Obama? Except for the people who elected him to the Senate or who had read his book? Lots of people had not only 'heard' of him but thought he would run for president one day. And then of course there are those people who foresaw the need to plant that birth announcement all those many years ago...

By referring to his intimations of economy lending themselves in the financial sector, Mr. Trump was most dire in his earnest attempts to mislead others away from the conservative party.
