Trump running for president is nothing more than a ruse for Hillary Clinton?

None of the above.
There is nothing that shows he is trying to lose. It looks like quite the opposite, actually.
Finding some evidence might help to fuel your theory, but it doesn't look like there is any. The evidence points to the exact opposite.

Well since a reuters poll put him in the lead just yesterday, I'd say he is doing a terrible job of losing....

I may have been wrong. Trump might pull this election off. I stand to lose a substantial amount of money, I have to eat my shoes and shave my head. I'm not looking forward to either one. But I have never welched on a wager in my considerable years as a gambler.

I think he underestimated how stupid the average voter is and how willing they are to be lead like sheep.
"Nationalism is our form of incest, is our idolatry, is our insanity. ''Patriotism'' is its cult. It should hardly be necessary to say, that by ''patriotism'' I mean that attitude which puts the own nation above humanity, above the principles of truth and justice not the loving interest in one's own nation, which is the concern with the nation's spiritual as much as with its material welfare --never with its power over other nations. Just as love for one individual which excludes the love for others is not love, love for one's country which is not part of one's love for humanity is not love, but idolatrous worship."

Aha - I found it...
Very interesting. Thanks for finding this. You said there were only 200 members at this private club of which Bill Clinton was one.. well let me watch the vid first.. thanks again.
When asked by Golf Digest in a 2012 interview whether he belongs to any golf clubs, Clinton mentioned only Trump National.
“I play at the Trump course [in Westchester],” Clinton said. “When people come to play with me, that’s where I take them. I have a membership there.”
The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee has played at Trump National as well. As a “gift” for his 65th birthday, Bill Clinton was joined by Hillary Clinton, Chelsea Clinton, and Marc Mezvinsky for a round at the course.
“This year on my 65th birthday … Hillary and Chelsea and Marc took me to the golf course, to Trump,” Clinton told Golf Digest.
Clinton praised “the Trump people” for reorganizing tee times at the course so that the foursome wouldn’t slow down the course.
