In the latest breaking news, tycoon and television personality has affirmed that he is not gunning the US presidency in 2012. Such confirmation ends weeks of rumors and speculation as to whether the 64 year old Trump will choose public service versus the private sector.
In a statement given, Trump remarked, “This decision does not come easily or without regret. I maintain the strong conviction that if I were to run, I would be able to win the primary and ultimately, the general election.”
He further commented, “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.”
The said announcement of Donald Trump was made on Monday after several weeks of traveling to different states in the United States and in the wake of the announcement of Mike Huckabee who has expressed that he is not seeking the Republican nomination for presidency.
