You’re Retired! Trump realizes Presidential run not good for his Brand

You’re Retired!

Donald Trump announced Monday that he will not run for president, saying he remains confident he could win but that he does not want to leave the private sector.

The real estate mogul and reality TV star announced his decision in a written statement, on the same day he was set to meet with NBC executives to discuss the future of his show, “Celebrity Apprentice.” Trump said he would not fade from the political spotlight, but cited his “passion” for business in his decision not to enter the 2012 Republican field. In trademark Trump fashion, he maintained he could have won the election if he wanted to.

“This decision does not come easily or without regret; especially when my potential candidacy continues to be validated by ranking at the top of the Republican contenders in polls across the country,” Trump said. “I maintain the strong conviction that if I were to run, I would be able to win the primary and ultimately, the general election. I have spent the past several months unofficially campaigning and recognize that running for public office cannot be done half heartedly. Ultimately, however, business is my greatest passion and I am not ready to leave the private sector.”

Trump also nixed his South Carolina Tea Party event scheduled for later this Week
