Donald Trump says will not run for U.S. President
BOSTON (Reuters) - Billionaire real estate magnate Donald Trump said on Monday that he will not run for the White House in 2012.
The host of reality TV show "Celebrity Apprentice" said the decision came after "considerable deliberation and reflection" after weeks of an unofficial campaign.
"I maintain the strong conviction that if I were to run, I would be able to win the primary and ultimately, the general election," Trump said in a statement.
