Trump Dumps Presidential Plans, Returns To 'Apprentice'
Donald Trump is not running for president. The host of "Celebrity Apprentice" will be back early next year hosting another season of the NBC hit.
Trump said at the NBC upfront event that he has raised loads of money for charity by hosting "Celebrity Apprentice," and he intends to keep doing it.
Trump's legacy as a presidential candidate will not be much more than his ability to nudge President Obama to release his long-form birth certificate. His political ambitions were mocked at the White House Correspondent's Dinner earlier this month by Saturday Night Live 's Seth Meyers, as well as President Obama. The next day, Trump lashed out at Meyers.
It would have been hard, of course, to envision the slick New Yorker with silk ties campaigning on Iowa farms. Plus, he may have felt his reputation could have taken a hit with a poor performance on the campaign trail.
What was somewhat remarkable was NBC entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt saying on Sunday that Trump was at least partially replaceable. He said if Trump did not return for another season, then someone else would be found to fire people in the boardroom.
