Donald Trump on 2016 Presidency: People 'Desperate' for Leadership, It's Me or Somebody

USAToday. The New York Post story over the holiday weekend had an eye-catching headline: "Trump Researching 2016 Run."

No, Donald Trump has not made a decision about a White House bid. Yes, he spent more than $1 million for research on what it would take to run for president. But the document was compiled in 2011, when Trump was seriously considering a 2012 challenge to President Obama.

Michael Cohen, executive vice president and special counsel to Trump, said Wednesday the research document "remains relevant for 2016" if the real estate mogul decides to run for president.

Trump's speech May 21 to the Oakland County (Michigan) Republican Party got the ball rolling. He told attendees at that Lincoln Day dinner that he is frequently encouraged to run for president and wished Obama was doing a better job.

Trump is set to make more speeches that could spark political chatter, including at a Faith & Freedom Coalition event June 14 in Washington. This year, he addressed the Conservative Political Action Conference — a gathering of activists that included Sens. Rand Paul, R-Ky., and Marco Rubio, R-Fla., among its speakers.

Trump gets these invitations because he "provides straightforward, no-nonsense solutions to fixing problems in this country," Cohen said.
