February 2, 2012 The never-shy reality TV star/real estate mogul said he is supporting Mitt Romney for president.
December 13, 2011 It was only a matter of time before Donald Trump would have to accept the inevitable and pull the plug on his latest planned reality show, the Newsmax-ION cable TV channel presidential debate that was supposed to take place later in late December.With only Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum accepting the invitation, it wasn't going to be much of a debate.
December 13, 2011 Donald Trump has decided he won't moderate a Republican presidential debate after all. He says he's still mulling a possible independent bid. Only two candidates were still committed to attend.
December 9, 2011 Only two contenders — former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and former Sen. Rick Santorum — have agreed to take part.
December 6, 2011 Donald Trump's planned Republican presidential debate lost a major reason for watching it, to see how Mitt Romney would contend with Newt Gingrich, the latest rival to claim frontrunner status. Romney said Tuesday he planned to skip the debate to be moderated by Trump, the TV reality show star and real estate developer.

December 5, 2011 Appearing on Meet The Press Sunday, Republican National Committee Chair Reince Priebus said it was up to the GOP presidential candidates themselves to decide whether they should participate at a Dec. 27 debate to be moderated by Donald Trump, the real estate developer, reality show star and world-class egotist. Karl Rove, the big dog among Republican political strategists, disagrees.
December 2, 2011 If you were sitting around watching the Republican presidential debates saying to yourself, "Hmmm, you know, these would be a whole lot more interesting if Donald Trump were moderating," you're in luck. Because he will be asking the questions, at least at one debate.
May 16, 2011 The president, who recently skewered Trump's reality show White House Correspondents' Association dinner, may not have had the real estate developer in mind, since obviously Trump had achieved business success before becoming a TV star. But it's probably safe to say nothing Trump has done recently would make Obama reconsider his view.
May 16, 2011 "After considerable deliberation and reflection, I have decided not to pursue the office of the presidency," he announces. Plus, "business is my greatest passion and I am not ready to leave the private sector." Still, he thinks he would have won.
May 12, 2011 "I get a lot of credit for comb-overs," he tells Rolling Stone. "But it's not really a comb-over. It's sort of a little bit forward and back."
April 29, 2011 President Obama and his aides avoided expressing racial grievance during the 2008 campaign. And in dealing with the birther issue, they have continued that approach, leaving it to others to claim that birtherism has a racial and even racist element to it.
