Donald Trump 'Seriously' Considering 2016 Presidential Bid

Donald Trump tells the Washington Post that he is seriously considering running for the presidency in 2016. Oh, goodie.
Views:

Should we add the name Donald Trump to the GOP clown car for the 2016 GOP presidential primary? That's what he wants Republican saps to believe anyway.

I was on Twitter and saw this from Robert Costa:

That made me laugh out loud. The King of the Birthers is at it again. Only Trump's ego is big enough to believe he'd be a viable candidate for the presidency. But it would add some much needed flair to the Republican debates since Reince Priebus is doing all he can to try and control them as much as possible after a disastrous 2012 primary season that was more embarrassing than anything else for the GOP.

WaPo: Trump says he is serious about 2016 bid

This time, Donald J. Trump says, he really means it.

The billionaire real-estate mogul — long amounting to a one-man sideshow in GOP presidential politics — said in an interview Wednesday that he is “more serious” than ever about pursuing a run for the White House in 2016.

In recent days, Trump said, he has hired staffers in key primary states, retained an election attorney and delayed signing on for another season as host of NBC’s “The Celebrity Apprentice” because of his political projects.

“Everybody feels I’m doing this just to have fun or because it’s good for the brand,” Trump said in an interview with The Washington Post. “Well, it’s not fun. I’m not doing this for enjoyment. I’m doing this because the country is in serious trouble.”

As part of his preparations, Trump met Monday in New York with Reince Priebus, the chairman of the Republican National Committee, telling him that he was actively mulling a presidential run, according to people familiar with the conversation. Priebus, who will remain neutral in the 2016 primaries, took the meeting because of Trump’s status as a prominent donor to the RNC.
