King of real estate and TV reality star Donald Trump has launched his presidential campaign in the US, something he has talked about doing for over 20 years.
“So, ladies and gentlemen, I am officially running for president of the United States, and we are going to make our country great again,” Trump announced to the crowd at the launch.
Trump flaunted his wealth and success in business as the focus of his presidential campaign and revealed he is worth $13 billion. “That’s the kind of thinking our country needs,” Trump said.
He pointed out that his wealth and successful business career qualified him to be president and would also mean he could not be swayed or controlled by those with money as is often the case in American politics.
Trump’s level of support is yet to be determined. Many people think he could be great for the American economy while others cannot take him seriously after watching over ten seasons of him on the reality TV show “The Apprentice”.
