No President Trump

Donald Trump has decided to drop his bid to run for President of the United States.

No President Trump

Trump announced the news in his usual grandiose, self-aggrandizing way.

"I maintain the strong conviction that if I were to run I would be able to win the primary and ultimately the general election," Trump said. "Ultimately business is my greatest passion and I am not ready to leave the private sector."

The ever-modest Trump said it was a hard decision, "especially when my potential candidacy continues to be validated by ranking at the top of the Republican contenders in polls across the country."
