Washington, June 17: As the US Presidential elections continue to pop up surprises, it is heard that business tycoon Donald Trump has also decided to take a plunge in the polls.
Addressing a huge crowd, he said,"So, ladies and gentlemen, I am officially running for president of the United States, and we are going to make our country great again. Sadly the American dream is dead. But if I get elected president I will bring it back bigger and better and stronger than ever before."
Lashing at his competitors on the Republican side, he said that USA's dreams and aspirations have been buried under the ashes and that it can revive with a strong regime.
Trump chose the venue for his announcement strategically. With the 68-storey Trump tower as the backdrop, he embodied the statesmanship and power that he brings to the table.
Breaking the taboo of being a reality TV star with his show 'The Apprentice', Trump was finally able to put an end to numerous contemplations for running a Presidential elections.
Trump is of the argument that his wealth and business acumen can take the country to an altogether different level. Announcing the funding of his own campaign, Trumo gave a blueprint of his agendas for the poll.
For instance, he mentioned building a border between Mexico and the US to curb illegal immigration and how he would make Mexico pay for the fence. How he would tackle the ISIS, and many more.
However, it is yet to be seen how the citizens react to his participation and whether they want him as their leader.
