The real estate mogul shocked crowds at this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference when he announced that he was considering running for presidency in 2012.
Trump is discouraged with the way the US is being ran right now, and feels that “we are no longer respected the way we used to be respected, and if we keep going like this, within 10 years China is going to overtake us easily.” The Trumpster also threatned to run for office in 1988 and 2000, but backed out because of his speculated fear of losing or being humiliated.
Another serious contender in the running is former Alaska Govenor Sarah Palin, whom Trump thinks is “very interesting” and should not be underestimated.

Cover boys B.o.B, Bruno Mars and Wiz Khalifa grace the Feb/Marc issue of VIBE on stands Feb 22nd. You may not get why we are calling them “The New Pop Music” but the truth is each of them has taken their own sound and infiltrated the masses thereby making them figures in popular culture and pop music. Don’t front, you know you can turn to any Top 40 music station and hear their music.
Check out some quotes from their interview:
Potheads and hippies, we flock. We’re peaceful as hell. You don’t hear about my concerts getting shot up or people getting beat up because they was too high and turned into a weed monster.
I’m a fan of young Elvis. And I’m a fan of the story, how he freaked out white America by doing this Black rock’n'roll. He would go onstage shaking his hips, and people were freaking out. They said, “You can’t film him from the waist down.” To me, that’s f****** awesome.
My loyalty is not to any corporation, my loyalty is to the music. That doesn’t mean that I don’t work with corporations, it doesn’t mean that I don’t sell music–it just means that first I’m an artist regardless of anything.
