Donald Trump throws his cards out for US Presidential race

New York, May 17: After the numerous tirades against the US President Barack Obama, Donald Trump has finally called it quits from the 2012 US Presidential race. The business mogul often grabbed headlines with his strong statements and flamboyant personality. The latest verbal stabbing came up when Trump made an issue out of Obama"s place of birth questioning his eligibility to have a re-run for the Presidential post.

In a statement given out on Monday, Trump said, "After considerable deliberation and reflection, I have decided not to pursue the office of the Presidency. I maintain the strong conviction that if I were to run, I would be able to win the primary and ultimately, the general election." Stating that he was not yet ready to leave the private sector and his flourishing business empire, it remains to be seen if Obama"s sudden jump in popularity post Osama death was a reason in the withdrawal of his candidature.

With a sudden drop in his popularity ratings for his obnoxious jibes coupled with Obama"s boost in reputation after Osama killing, Trump considers little of the negative comments against him. Not appearing to be regretful that he poached the birth certificate issue and made a big deal out of it, he said, “I am very proud of myself because I have accomplished something that nobody else has been able to accomplish."

In his usual opinionated attitude he was quoted as saying in an interview with Fox News recently that Indians should deal with Pakistan and not the US. He also strongly commented on the US aid to Pakistan and said that if he was in Obama"s place he would cut off the USD 3.2 billion aid to Pakistan until such a time that they abandoned their nuclear initiatives. He had said, “India is next to Pakistan. May be India should work out the problem, not the United States."
