Donald Trump for President in 2016?
The concept isn't exactly new. In January 2000, Manhattan billionaire Donald Trump published The America We Deserve, a bestselling book that discussed in detail how he would run the United States of America if he were president.
That same year, a reputable poll leading up to the presidential election placed Donald Trump at number two -- right behind the eventual winner George W. Bush -- but ahead of Al Gore, who was Vice President at the time.
Donald Trump chose not to seek the Oval Office in 2000, but has entertained the idea during subsequent presidential campaign seasons. "Trump for President 2016" campaign gear is already available on Zazzle!
Donald Trump has very outspoken in his criticism of the current crop of Beltway policy makers. Clearly unhappy with the direction in which the United States is headed, Donald Trump has indicated that he is seriously considering a run. He eventually endorsed Mitt Romney in 2012, but hasn't ruled out the possibility of running in the future. Many fed-up Americans are listening to Donald Trump, and they long to hear him utter the words ... Barry, you're fired!

The America We Deserve
by Donald J. Trump
In a poll leading up to the 2000 presidential election, Donald Trump was named the second most popular candidate, right after front-runner George W. Bush. Lagging behind him was then vice president Al Gore.
"Nobody ever accused me of modesty, but it's a tremendous honor to have millions of people considering you for high office when you didn't seek it out," responded the iconic New York businessman.
That same year, Donald Trump published The America We Deserve, which discusses in detail how he would run the country if he were president.
A few months ago, I had the honor of hearing Donald Trump speak in person, and he made it very clear how unhappy he is with the way our country is being run by the current crop of politicians.
When someone in the ballroom shouted out "Mr. Trump, run for president," the entire audience broke out in thunderous applause.
I would lower the taxes for people in this country and corporations in this country and let China and some of the other countries that are ripping us off and making hundreds of billions of dollars a year, let them pay.
