Donald Trump confirmed this himself on TV news this morning. He is giving SERIOUS consideration to running for Governor of New York in 2014. He will announce one way or another soon. This morning when discussing the possible run, he stated that taxes are way too high for New York and that there is no need for it. He does sound like a politician who is running.

NYC is liberal. Trump is against gay marriage but in favor of legalizing drugs and taxing them. As Governor he wouldn't have any say about gay marriage so that wouldn't be an issue, but he could work things so that drugs were legalized, regulated, and taxed. He's also pro-life, but again as Governor he wouldn't have any say about abortion. The SCOTUS has already set the nations law that it's legal.

Republicans Coaxing Donald Trump to Run for Governor of New York

GOPers Eye Donald Trump for Governor of New York

Increasingly desperate New York Republicans, seeking the political equivalent of a Hail Mary pass, are trying to get Donald Trump to run against Gov. Cuomo next year, The Post has learned.
They’re seeking to make the case that while Trump is only an apprentice politician, he’s the only Republican on the horizon who has the name recognition, guts and money to tell Cuomo, “You’re fired!”

Where Trump stands on the issues - Trump on the Issues here

Some of his stands -

- He is Pro life
- He says there will be a crash bigger than 1929
- He says 'No' to gay marriage
- 0% corporate tax would create millions of jobs (according to him)
- Capital punishment isn’t uncivilized (according to him)
- Legalize drugs and use tax revenue to fund drug education
- No Cap-and-Tax
- China is our financial enemy; they're bilking us for billions
- Democrats and Republicans are both wrong on guns
- Kill ObamaCare before it becomes a trillion-ton weight
(on TV he said it will collapse under it's own weight)

He's an attention junkie. And who knows, maybe this time he's serious (he's cried wolf several times now, and the wolves are just looking at him like he's got kibble and may throw them some). If he does this who would be his main opponents?

He does that every year. He's done that for years and years. he just does that as a way to get free publicity. So by getting a news story out there that he's running for some political office then he gets onto news shows and also all the press gets carried and that brings free publicity to his Trump brand.

But he's not actually gonna ever run for anything. He's an old man who just spends his time chasing young tale. He's lied his way to the top and will continue using these kinds of lies to keep milking money off people.

Now go buy a condo at trump las vegas, but a trump book or watch apprentice.

(he's cried wolf several times now,..)

Very true. He's said 'maybe' for a POTUS run a few times. Played with it.
Toyed with it in front of the TV cameras.

This seems a bit different. There were actually some elected folks who came
and met with him. (allegedly). So it might have legs.

If he ran and lost it would injure his 'brand'.
So I can't see him running unless he was very confident in a win.
If he were running he'd have feelers out and focus groups, etc etc ...
Haven't heard about any of that ... not that we would ...

Rich guy will never become a president in this era of unemployment and poverty because there is no way for them to relate(helloRomney).

When was the last time NY went republican? 1980s?

Ah the republican that is calling himself "Independent" to get votes.. yeah i know him.

Even tho there are many rich, the average to poor out number them in new york.

So i highly doubt NY will ever vote for a republican president over a democratic.

He will announce one way or another soon.

Likely with overblown ego-driven fanfare in front of one of his many building bearing his name.

This man has no business leading anybody.

Let me's almost time for the new season of The Apprentice to start up. Gotta give it to Trump, he knows how to get free advertising out of the media.
