Not surprised at all, he's been talking about it since the 80s and tried and failed in the year 2000. Remember this?

Here is a timeline:

1987-1988: Trump considers a run for president, while simultaneously juggling large debts stemming from his purchase of the Taj Mahal casino.

2000: Trump enters the presidential race as a Reform Party candidate and receives more than 15,000 votes in the party's California primary.

2003-2004: Trump begins hosting the reality show The Apprentice on NBC, which he also executive-produces. He again mulls a run for president, but ultimately decides not to join the race.

March 2011: A Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll shows Trump leading all presidential contenders, including Mitt Romney.

April 2011: Amid more research polls indicating that he would be the preferred Republican presidential candidate among voters, Trump repeatedly calls for President Obama to release his long-form birth certificate, questioning whether Obama was actually born in the United States. (Obama eventually complies and releases the birth certificate.)

May 2011: Trump officially announces that he will not run for president.

February 2012: Trump endorses Republican candidate Mitt Romney for president.

2013: Trump forms a presidential exploratory committee and, despite a strong backing from Republican voters, announces that he has no interest in running for governor of New York in 2014.

February 2015: Trump decides not to renew his Apprentice contract, fueling speculation that he's mulling a run for president.

June 2015: Trump formally announces that he's running for president in a speech delivered from Trump Tower in New York City. Almost immediately, corporations and individuals that have partnerships with Trump - including Macy's, NBC and Univision - begin to sever ties with the mogul because of disparaging comments he made about Mexicans in the speech announcing his candidacy.

Melania a swallow? Unpossible.

(Did you know 'The Don' was 24 years old when Melania was born)?

I'm not surprised that Trump himself would aspire to this... but why such a big push from the media when they only seek to destroy him now? I think even Letterman himself has turned on Trump. So what gives? Is this how they are going to institute full-on socialism? By bringing down the 'Lion' of capitalism?

U-alls decide. I'm just playing miniature golf online...

Because he had the absolute audacity to flip from a Democrat to a Republican and then actually be a conservative.

Think about it. The left idolized the guy for 30+ years.

Then he changed his job and they hate him.

Well that's the gullibility of the left for you.... obviously Trump was a DINO. A 3 year old could see that steamship a-comin'! TOOT-TOOT! ;-)

Donald Trump From Wikipedia, Political career

Vacillating turncoat. Clearly.

Anyway, what Trump did or didn't do or say doesn't discount the fact that there was an obvious program in place with widespread cooperation from the media to push him into power. His interviews were much more closely spaced together the closer the election drew. I think he is likely CIA-operated myself. Those guys love a good script and a laugh, I'm sure. =D

CIA, get real. It's them other guys.

I have suspected that the Democrats really were the push behind Trump running for POTUS as a Republican, figuring that he wouldn't have had a chance when running against Hillary. Heck, they didn't even bother trying to take REAL polls for the election, they simply ASSUMED what the results would be. Surprise, surprise!

I've always suspected this. Hillary's pied-piper candidate strategy was just the tip of the iceberg. Trump got a phone call from Bill Clinton a mere week before he annoounced his run. The Clintons attended Trump's wedding to Melania. Trump donated millions to the Clintons and other down ballot Democrats. There were also the flights Trump took with Bill to Jeff Epstein's private island. Among many many many others things that make me squint my eyes at partisans.
