Donald Trump is doing it!! No joke!! Real estate mogul and billionaire businessman Donald Trump officially announced his candidacy for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination at his own Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue. Essentially, he’s now the 12th high-profile Republican to enter the already crowded 2016 race.


He had actually hinted it last week, so no big surprise there. But the fact that his announcement to enter politics was given wide press coverage proves just how much Americans, and the world for that matter, need him to be in the race, although his presence could merely for the purpose of entertainment.

Get real, who actually knows all the 12 Republican candidates, besides Bush, and now Trump? We don’t need boring politics. We need entertainment. And Trump, being the ultimate bragging, bashing and trash-talking champion has it all. Life without him would be so dull and meaningless.


The fact is, the age where Americans get to see candidate with dignity of Washington, the moral stature of Lincoln, the intellect of Jefferson, the boldness of Roosevelt, the charm of Kennedy and the eloquence of Reagan has long gone. And when you have loser such as ex-HP Carly Fiorina and clown Donald Trump trying their luck, it speaks volumes about the quality of American leaders nowadays.

Haven’t Americans get enough of “Clinton” and “Bush”? At least Donald Trump was made to collect empty soda bottles with his brother to redeem for cash by his father, so that the junior could learn the value of money. And now, Trump has disclosed his financial statement to all and sundry – a whopping US$8,737,540,000 (£5.58 billion; RM32.77 billion) of fortune.


Stood in front of 8 American flags, Trump started the entertainment by boasting how “thousands” of people were there in the lobby of the 68-story Trump Tower on 5th Avenue in New York City, despite only some handfuls of people. At the same session, he told everyone how Obama overspent on its US$5 billion Obamacare website, when it only costs him US$3 bucks to hire a guy to do it.

Trump repeatedly said he’s very rich, and he’s super proud of it. Before you look at it from the boastful angle of view, actually that is a big deal. Why? That’s because he could ignore lobbyists and donors who would sell anything for money. And since he’s so freaking rich that he could make decisions without being bias, that’s great for the American people, no?


So, here’s his agenda – to repeal Obamacare, to bring back outsourced jobs, to bring back American dream, to defeat ISIS, to beat China simply because he has beaten them all the time, to make America rich, and most importantly – to make “America Great Again” because he will be the greatest jobs president that God ever created.

Like it or not, he’s probably right when he said – “We owe China US$1.3 trillion. We owe Japan more than that. So they come in and they take our jobs, they take our money and then they loan us back the money and we pay them interest and then the dollar goes up so their deal is even better. How stupid are our leaders?”


If he somehow gets into the Oval Office, it would be nice to see how he would use his personal abilities in the boardroom and at the negotiating table against world leaders from Russia, China or even the Saudi Arabia. Let’s hope he doesn’t tell Vladimir Putin, Xi Jinping and King Salman – You’re Fired!! – whenever he loses his temper and start nuking those countries (*grin*).

While acknowledging China leaders are much smarter than Americans’, he suggested that (stupid) President Obama step down from his office early and offered his Trump National Golf Club in Washington, D.C., so that the president can play golf for as long as he desires. Obviously, he was poking and insulting Obama for golfing more than working.


He proposes to build an inexpensive Great Wall of America to stop Mexico from bringing problems – drugs, crimes, rapists – to the country. And Trump will make Mexico pay for the wall. As soon as he was done announcing, Trump suggested that he could have some help making America great – in the form of Oprah Winfrey as the Vice Presidential candidate.

Nonetheless, Mr Donald Trump got it right when he bitched about American failing school system. He said “Twenty-five countries are better than us at education. And some of them are like third-world countries”. That’s quite true if PISA exam results is used as the benchmark, whereby the US ranked 35th in “Math”, 27th in “Science”, and 24th in “Reading”.


Is Trump crazier than all the president wannabes put together? Will be build thousands of Trump casinos all over the world – Tehran, Moscow, Kandahar, Gaza, Riyadh, Kabul, Pyongyang? Republicans are scratching their heads, worry and fear that Trump will turn an otherwise serious Republican primary contest into a circus (*grin*).

Trump could be the party spoiler and the best candidate to the fence-sitters, who despise both “Bush” and “Clinton”. And if he’s lucky enough, he could just win and become the next President of the United States. The only problem is – will he chicken out at the eleventh hour, again?
