A CNN-Time survey in July showed Trump with 7% when matched with Texas Gov. George W. Bush and Vice President Gore. The Enquirer poll was an unscientific study of 100 individuals.

Reform Celebration Chairman Russell Verney said he has actually had no contact with Trump, but included: “I welcome him, and anyone else who wants the nomination.”

Trump, a signed up Republican politician, stated he supports tax cuts, abortion rights and universal health care, however not weapon control.

When it comes to the male he would change, he said President Clinton and First Woman Hillary Rodham Clinton “actually got ripped” on their $1.7 million deal for a house in Westchester’s Chappaqua. “The home is right next door to among my golf courses, and I simply wish perhaps I could have represented him in purchasing the house,” he said with particular self-effacement, “because I think I could have saved them $600,000 or $700,000.”
