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.

Is it just me, or does this guy come off as a bit of a douche?

Trump knew long ago that he was not running and didn't have a chance. His ego is so "BIG" until I think he really thought that he could arouse some "s" for the PR of his Apprentice show. It has really changed my view on this man. He found out that even the Ruplican Party didn't want him around much long. Rather than say the man is a racist, I want to believe that he has a few screws loose in his head.

DONALD...........DONALD...............DONALD

One of a kind in his own mind

Made of media hype is his character sign,

No political force to twist his arm

Banks the ads and he's back to the "F A R M".

@Gel; Ahahahahahahahahahahahahaha! That was AWESOME!

As if anyone gave 2 craps about this guy and his running. NO ONE believed him and he only proved to the world just how much of an a$$ his is as well as the biggest mouth/ego the world over. Now if only the media will follow suit and STOP TALKING ABOUT HIM. Fox can have him, get him off all the other channels and KEEP HIM OFF! Dude doesn't know **** about politics or what's good for this country.

I don't know anyone that wanted to vote for Trump. What would have been his answer for the economy anyway? File Bankrupcy? He does it every time it is allowed and he uses OTHER PEOPLES MONEY!

Hes such a chicken ****, he could not have found his way out of a paperbag. Hes got so much hotair. He never intended on running, he just had to get his name in the news, he must be getting ready to file Bankrupcty again. Thats like Dr Rith saying she is going to Run, actually i would have voted for her before the Donald.

@janet - 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.

*******************

Hey, Janet. I was going to say the same thing. And, it IS always about the money with that delusional idiot.

does anyone else remember in one interview, Trump said as Prez, if the country needed money all he would do is use his own, I may not have that convo verbatum, but the bottom line was he knows nothing bout nothing. He actually thinks as Prez he could give another country that needs our help, $$$ from his own account? Does he understand what THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES does on a daily basis? what a fuching putz, i stopped watching his show long time ago cause he is so stuck on himself and thinks that the whold world is in love with him AND his family. NO wonder he can't keep a wife, he's a boring S.O.B. among other things. jeez................

trump is a joke, he had the media thinking he would run, but he was just blowing hot air. he is a carnival barker who loves money way too much. nbc threw alot of money his way and he folded. he should have never said he might run and kept his big mouth shut. like all celebrities opinions they do not amount to much. put up or shut-up and donald trump could do neither. i never believe what comes out of his mouth again. he is a liar and a fake.

Wow, so sad to hear this, I was looking forward to seeing him make a complete ass of himself in running for President just as he does every time he opens his sulky mouth about anything. This man is so full of total crap I don't know how he manages to get his comb over in the mornings, guess he pays someone to do it for him. He needs to just disapear into his Trump hotel and stay there.
