‘I’m really rich’ Donald Trump proclaimed as he announced he is Running for President. The real estate mogul and reality television celebrity, announced Tuesday that he would seek the Republican presidential nomination from the eponymous Trump Tower in New York.

“I will be the greatest jobs president that God ever created”
In highly provocative comments, Trump accused Mexico of sending rapists and other criminals to live in the United States.
“They’re sending people that have lots of problems and they’re bringing their problems,” he said. “They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they’re rapists, and some I assume are good people but I speak to border guards and they tell us what we are getting.”
“Bush is totally in favor of Common Core. I don’t see how he can possibly get the nomination. He’s weak on immigration, he’s in favor of Common Core. How the hell can you vote for this guy? You just can’t do it.”
Trump, who owns several hotels and hosts the reality show “The Celebrity Apprentice” on NBC, boasted having $8.7 billion in net worth, a number he says he released so that America understands he is not a loser.
“Our enemies are getting stronger and stronger by the day and we as a country are getting weaker,” he said.
“Hey, I’m not saying they’re stupid. I like China. I just sold an apartment for $15 million to somebody from China,” he said.
“No, I love them, but their leaders are much smarter than our leaders,” he said. “It’s like, take the New England Patriots and Tom Brady and have them play your high school football team. That’s the difference between China’s leaders and our leaders. They are ripping us.”
He urged Saudi Arabia to be more appreciative of the military and diplomatic support it has received from the United States for decades. “Saudi Arabia without us is gone,” he warned.
“We need somebody that literally will take this country and make it great again. We can do that,” Trump told a crowd of supporters. “…So ladies and gentleman, I am officially running for president of the United States.”
