Trump has said that he is seriously considering running for President of the United States in 2012.

For 2012, Trump has made an energetic investigation of a presidential candidacy, including a February speech to a CPAC gathering, an early venue for candidates considering a presidential run, as a write-in candidate in its straw poll for the office. A Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll released in March 2011 found Donald Trump leading among potential contenders for the Republican nomination for President of the United States, one point ahead of former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney. A Newsweek poll conducted February 2011 showed Trump within a few points of Obama, with many voters undecided in the November 2012 general election for President of the United States against Barack Obama. A poll released in April 2011 by Public Policy Polling showed Trump having a nine point lead in a potential contest for the Republican nomination for President of the United States. Trump's present political stances include the following:

  • Pro-life
  • Against same-sex marriage
  • Anti-gun control
  • Advocates for the repeal and replacement of Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act
  • Anti-foreign aid
  • Supports a fair trade policy and believes generally that the People's Republic of China should be considered more of an adversarial competitor, subjected to significant import tariffs as a response to China's currency policy in order to help balance the U.S. budget.
  • Believes the U.S. should disengage in Iraq and Afghanistan
With Trump expected to make a decision by the summer of 2011, his campaign has been reported by some media as a possible promotional tool for his reality show The Apprentice. Time.com had the headline "Donald Trump Begins Not Running For President" and the Huffington Post was similarly skeptical of whether he would run.

When I think of Donald Trump's potential run for United States presidency in terms of pop culture, it's actually pretty awesome and hilarious.  But when I think about it a real possibility -- it's actually a very scary and cringe-worthy thought.  My first thought when I heard that he was considering running was -- he's joking, right?  Then -- is he even qualified?  So I looked up the qualifications for a presidential candidate, which were surprisingly simple, …

Stop firing!!!
Let me qualify this review to begin with. It is a very unpolitical and bias review. It is based more on my personal observation and feeling of Donald Trump whom I do not personally know (that's probably unfair to him but hey, he's a public figure so that's unavoidable!). Hence, it is not an attack on his character (which most political reviews would have done, I presume) but rather a reflection on his portrayal of himself on his reality shows.      Donald Trump may …
