Donald Trump “launched his presidential campaign Tuesday, ending more than two decades of persistent flirtation with the idea of running for the Oval Office,” CNN reports.
“Just over four years after he came closer than ever to launching a campaign before bowing out, Trump made his announcement at the lavish Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue in New York… The 68-story tower venue Trump used Tuesday is more than just the backdrop to Trump’s presidential announcement, instead becoming a physical embodiment of what Trump is bringing to the table and the challenges he’ll face as he formally enters politics.”
Wall Street Journal: “After publicly toying with a presidential bid five times since 1988, Mr. Trump formally declared his candidacy for the first time at a skyscraper named for himself. Mr. Trump has built a larger-than-life profile as a reality-television personality and real-estate developer. Now he hopes to parlay his fame into a spot on the Republican presidential stage.”Save to Favorites
