Donald Trump Announces Run for Presidency

Speaking from his namesake Trump Tower, Donald Trump announced his bid for the presidency Tuesday morning. "We are going to make our country great again," he told the gathered crowd, evoking his new campaign slogan: "Make America Great Again."
With his announcement, the billionaire businessman has finally jumped into the ring after two decades of flirting with – some might call it threatening – such a run.
Trump is widely considered to be an unserious candidate, a man who – despite an incredible amount of resources – is unlikely to secure the GOP nomination, and who is more interested in garnering attention. Still, he could have a measurable impact on the race. As recently as last month, Trump was polling better than several other Republican candidates; if those numbers hold, he could end up on stage at the GOP debates.
