Donald Trump breaks with GOP, eyes independent bid
Source: MSNBC

Billionaire businessman Donald Trump has changed his voter registration in New York state from Republican to unaffiliated to preserve his option of running for president as an independent.

Michael Cohen, special counsel to Trump, said Friday that Trump could enter the race if Republicans fail to nominate a candidate who the real estate mogul believes can defeat President Barack Obama.

Cohen told to NBC News that Trump would consider his position "after the finale of 'The Apprentice' in May of 2012 if he is not satisfied with the Republican nominee for president." <snip>

He told NBC News that Trump already has a game plan, as well as individuals identified in states to help begin the process of getting him on the ballot.

4. The thought of him eying anything is creepy.
And it should duck and hide.

Is there any perverted circus act from our Bouffant Barnum that the media won't drop its knickers for?

5. LOL. I misread this sentence at first:
He told NBC News that Trump already has a game plan, as well as individuals identified in states to help begin the process of getting him on the toilet.
