Donald Trump: Hail to Someone Else -- I'm Not Running

5/16/2011 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Donald Trump says if he ran for President of the United States he'd win, but he still decided against doing it.

Donald Trump for President

Trump says, "I maintain the strong conviction that if I were to run I would be able to win the primary and ultimately the general election."  But, Trump concludes, "Ultimately business is my greatest passion and I am not ready to leave the private sector."

Trump, always shy, says, it was a hard decision, "especially when my potential candidacy continues to be validated by ranking at the top of the Republican contenders in polls across the country."

And in a shocker, Trump didn't wait until the finale of "Celebrity Apprentice" -- he pulled out a week before he crowns the winner.  Timing, Donald.

Oh please. He would not win. He's delusional. He's backing off because he knows he wouldn't win. I worked for someone just like him; so full of himself and the world revolved around him. NOT TRUE! Only he thought so. Ego maniacs eventually burn out and their karma catches up to them for using/abusing/burning people to reach their ultimate goal -- It's a fact of life. And his number is up and his big mouth is catching up to him

Obviously he has realized he has already made a big enough fool out of himself. Someone must have told him because I don't think he's that smart.

First of all Trump was never going to run and would never run because he would loose too much money not being in the 'private sector'.

This was nothing but pure hype for ratings. There was never a hard decision to make. Despite his ego. Always about the money.

Donald Trump never had any intention of running for President. For one he would have gotten his head handed to him, he doesn't have the the thick skin that is required in order to survive in the political arena. As far as him saying he would win....let him put his money where his mouth is and run then!

He's dropping out, because after the correspondent dinner, he knew he had no chance.
His pride couldn't handle a loss.
