Either Donald Trump couldn’t stand the heat, and got out of the kitchen, or his initial run for president was all in fun.
In an official announcement made today at NBC’s Fall Upfront presentation, Trump chose to continue to make money by surrounding himself with more celebrities next year, rather than spend anymore money on presidential election campaigns. “I love Celebrity Apprentice. We’ve raised tens of millions of dollars for charity,” he said.
“I’ve decided that we are going to continue onward with Celebrity Apprentice, we are going to continue making lots and lots of money for charity. I will not be running for President, as much as I’d like to.”
