Donald Trump To Announce Today
Donald Trump may finally take the plunge. The real estate mogul and TV reality star is expected to launch his presidential campaign Tuesday, ending more than two decades of persistent flirtation with the idea of running for the Oval Office. Just over four years after he came closer than ever to launching a campaign before bowing out, Trump will make what he's billed as a "major announcement" at the lavish Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue in New York, laying out a vision to match his incoming campaign slogan, "Make America Great Again." But the 68-story tower will be more than just the backdrop to Trump's expected presidential announcement, instead becoming a physical embodiment of what Trump is bringing to the table and the challenges he'll face as he formally enters politics. Trump has already billed himself as the "most successful person ever to run for the presidency, by far," pointing out even that he owns a "Gucci store that's worth more than Romney." That Gucci store won't be far as Trump makes his announcement -- it's located in the lobby of the Trump Tower.The Washington Post reports that Trump will today reveal that he is worth $9B.
