Donald Trump Won't Run For President In 2012

A day after NBC revealed it planned to replace Donald Trump on the 'Apprentice' should he run for office, the real estate mogul told an audience of the network's advertisers he won't be running for president in 2012.

"After getting so many calls, I've decided I'm going to continue onward with Celebrity Apprentice," Trump said. "I will not be running for president, as much, as I'd like to."

"We're going to continue making lots and lots of money for charity. NBC has been amazing. This will be our twelfth season and I have to say I love Celebrity Apprentice. We've never raised so much as we have in this season."

Many had speculated whether Trump was simply using the potential presidential bid to generate publicity for the Trump brand. And, although it's tough to know whether that was Trump's intention from the start, that appears to have been the case.

Last week, ABC News reported that the most recent polls contained some ominous signs for The Donald.

"The numbers are very daunting," David Birdsell, dean of the School of Public Affairs at Baruch College in New York City, said. "The incline is very steep. He has all kinds of problems that would take a lot of undoing if he is really serious about it."
