Trump’s desire to be President surprises many in US

Washington, Apr 9: American business tycoon Donald Trump has surprised many in his country by indicating that he might run for president in 2012.

“I never really considered very strongly running for the presidency. But the country has never been in trouble like it is now,” Fox News quoted Trump, as saying.

The business magnate said he would decide by June, and added that he would discuss details of the presidential season with GOP chairman Reince Priebus this week.

Donald has been doing quite well in opinion polls, tying with Mike Huckabee at 17 percent, just behind Mitt Romney at 21 percent, in a recent Wall Street Journal poll. He was placed fourth, behind Huckabee, Romney and Sarah Palin in a Fox News poll.

Former White House insider and Fox News contributor Karl Rove, however, thinks that his position is based on the fact that he is a well known celebrity and not because of his political credentials.

Rove also said that the candidates should make themselves available to voters in person to win their hearts as the campaign heats up. (ANI)
