Trump 2016?!? Mogul Spends $1 Million on Presidential Run Research

by at . Comments

Move over, Hillary Clinton and Chris Christie. And make room for - GULP! - The Donald.

The New York Post reports that Donald Trump has spent over $1 million on exploratory research to determine whether he ought to run for President of the United States in 2016.

Donald Trump in 2016?

The Celebrity Apprentice host has been speaking at various Republican events over the last few weeks, trying to combine modesty with his trademark hubris.

“Everybody tells me, ‘Please run for president. Please run for president," he said last week in front of 2,300 supporters in Michigan, adding:

"I’d be happy if President Obama did a great job. I’m a Republican, but before anything, I love this country. I would love to see somebody come in who is going to be great.”

But, as Sarah Palin often echoed in 2012, if no one fits that bill, Trump will gladly throw his name into a ring that is expected to include Christie, Mario Rubio, Jeb Bush and Ted Cruz.

Michael Cohen - executive vice president and special counsel to Trump - says his boss commissioned the $1 million in research to investigate Trump’s popularity in each state, as his team tries to get a handle on who he would need to win over.

“The electoral research was commissioned. We did not spend $1 million on this research for it just to sit on my bookshelf,” Cohen said. “At this point Mr. Trump has not made any decision on a political run, but what I would say is that he is exactly what this country needs. The turnout at these political speeches indicates his following remains very strong and is growing.“

Do you think Donald Trump should run for President in 2016?

What would happen if we had a president who actually knew how to create wealth rather than just knowing how to spend taxpayers money. we need a leader as a president. Most politicians arent leaders, they are liars. Trump would not try to do anything to hurt his brand. He is just tired of letting people rip our country off. believe me, Donald j. Trump cares about his country. He wants it to succeed. Do you know how i know? honestly, research donald trump and his success and you will realize that he would be a great president. Probably event the best.

He should stick to what he does best, which is running his business. Running a country is a different thing. http://www.smyrnacoin.com/

In case anyone hasn't noticed, and despite almost complete Republican and Tea Party obstructionism, the Obama Economy and the stock market are booming, with the stock market at new all-time highs almost every day. During the previous 8 years of the Bush Administration, the stock market had zero gains, there were two recessions, the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil in history, two wars, a stock market crash, and the worst economic catastrophe since the Great Depression. Donald Trump? The guy is a disgusting, egomaniacal pig, with the most laughable hair-do in all of mankind.
