Boy, the ego just won’t be able to handle this.
With the wheels coming off the GOP debate he is supposed to host, Donald Trump admitted Friday that he’s looking into canceling the sparsely-attended forum.
But Trump, in a typical display of chutzpah, said there’s another reason why he might pull the plug – he still may run for President.
“If the Republican, in my opinion, is not the right candidate [to defeat President Obama\],” Trump declared, “I am unwilling to give up my right to run as an independent candidate.”
The Donald had blamed TV equal-time provisions that prohibited him from simultaneously running for President and hosting NBC’s “The Apprentice” until the show’s May season finale for bowing out of the race.
He also claimed that several GOP candidates told him they’d only do the December 27 debate if Trump vowed to not launch a late bid for the White House once “The Apprentice” was off the air.
“I must leave all of my options open,” the flamboyant real estate magnate said in a statement released Friday, “because above all else, we must make America great again!”
Guess that last bi chance for Santorum will pass him by.
