Donald Trump announced today that he will not be running for the Presidency. He used the “I can benefit the private sector better” excuse.
Here is my take on his decision. His poll numbers tanked and he does not have a snowball’s chance in Hell of winning the GOP nomination, much less the Presidency. Moreover, “The Apprentice” was renewed for another year. That was his true motivation for toying with the presidency. The focus is always on himself and the gains that he can amass. Plus, a run by Trump for the highest office in the land was sure looking like a losing proposition. His narcissism would never allow him to enter a contest that was a total loss from the get-go.
I am not surprised by Trump’s decision and I am pleased. But darn it, imagine the fun we could have had if he doubled down and ran. Now all that fun is kaput. Or is it? Some of the other characters, like Newt and Bachmann and Palin, would surely keep us entertained aplenty. Let the games begin!
