WASHINGTON, February 26. /TASS/. US entrepreneur and billionaire Donald Trump said he is "more serious than ever" about running for president in 2016, The Washington Post wrote in Wednesday.
"Everybody feels I’m doing this just to have fun or because it’s good for the brand," he told The Washington Post. "Well, it’s not fun. I’m doing this for enjoyment, I’m doing this because the country is in serious trouble," he added.
Trump is famous for his extravagance and self-advertising. In particular, he hosts NBC’s "Celebrity Apprentice."
According to the newspaper, Trump hired staffers in primary states and retained an election attorney. The billionaire intended to participate in 2012 presidential elections, but withdrew his candidacy several months before the primaries, saying he is not ready to leave business.
Among the Republicans, the highest chances to be nominated for presidency are with Florida Governor Jeb Bush, brother of former president George W. Bush; New Jersey Governor Chris Christie; Senators Marco Rubio, Rand Paul and Ted Cruz; Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker; former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee; Congressman Paul Ryan and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson.
The most probable candidates from the Democratic Party are former State Secretary Hillary Clinton and current Vice-President Joseph Biden.
US President Barack Obama cannot run for presidency again, as he is serving his second term.
