Donald Trump will not make a bid for the White House in 2012, telling reporters Monday that "I will not be running for president as much as I'd like to."
In typical Trump fashion, he added that, "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."
Sure thing, Don.
Trump concludes that as tempting as it would be to run, "Ultimately business is my greatest passion and I am not ready to leave the private sector."
It was a hard decision, "especially when my potential candidacy continues to be validated by ranking among the top [GOP] contenders across the country."
Well, sort of.
Testing the wasters this spring, Trump polled well at first, but miscalculated big time by not focusing on his (perceived) strength: Business acumen.
