Trump says he won’t run in the 2012 presidential election

    It’ll be quite some time before we’ll have President “The Donald.” Donald Trump said today he won’t seek the GOP nomination for the 2012 presidential election.

    The announcement was timed with NBC’s announcement about its fall lineup, which includes Trump’s reality show, The Apprentice.

    Trump says business is still his passion, as the Associated Press reports, and that he’s “not ready to leave the private sector.”
