The 2012 election might have taken place just seven months ago, but speculation for 2016 has already begun. And guess who is once again considering a run for president? None other than Celebrity Apprentice star Donald Trump! Will Trump actually run this time, or are we going to witness the 2012 hype once again?
Donald Trump remains unhappy as ever with the political establishment…and now, he just might be ready to do something about it. Rumor has it the business tycoon and reality star has already spent one million big ones on research related to a potential presidential run in 2016.
He might have plenty of money to spare, but according to Donald Trump’s adviser Michael Cohen, that million isn’t being spent just for the hell of it. “The electoral research was commissioned. We did not spend $1 million on this research for it just to sit on my bookshelf.” Cohen adds that, while Trump has not made a decision just yet, he is definitely interested in pursuing a presidential run. And if Trump did decide to launch an election campaign, Cohen feels that he would have no trouble attracting voters. “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.”
Despite constant questions from fans, Donald Trump is not quite ready to reveals his thoughts on a potential presidential campaign. But he is perfectly happy to comment on current political issues, with his latest Twitter criticisms focused on global warming and John McCain’s recent visit to Syria.
