Donald Trump has reportedly spent $1 million in an effort to explore the viability of a potential presidential bid in 2016. The real estate mogul was making all of the same noises last time around but bailed in 2012 without ever throwing his hat in the ring.
Trump’s special counsel Michael Cohen indicates Trump is dead serious this time, “The electoral research was commissioned. We did not spend $1 million on this research for it just to sit on my bookshelf.”
Last week The Donald spoke at a Republican Party dinner in Michigan and told attendees that a run was “highly unlikely.”
His lawyer left the door wide open, “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.“
Trump isn’t above tooting his own horn, “Everybody tells me, ‘Please run for president. Please run for president.’ I would be much happier if a great and competent person came along. 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.”
Trump’s favorite media tool for sharing his political views is his Twitter page. We’ve added two of his recent tweets:
When Trump isn’t critiquing politicians, he enjoys badmouthing his perceived foes. On election night NBC newsman Brian Williams indicated on the air that Donald Trump “has driven well past the last exit to relevance and veered into something closer to irresponsibility.” Trump responded by calling Williams “a dummy.”
