TV star Donald Trump Thursday strung out a media tease over
whether he will run for U.S. president by setting a --
tentative -- date for announcing a date for announcing his
Trump said in a statement he may declare when he will
declare whether he will seek the Republican candidacy on
network television during the May 22 season finale for his
reality TV show "The Celebrity Apprentice," which airs on NBC.
"On the May 22 Season Finale of Celebrity Apprentice, Mr.
Trump may announce the time and place of a press conference at
which time he will make a statement as to whether or not he
will run for President of the United States," Trump advisor
Michael Cohen said in a statement.

running for office are an attempt to milk publicity. Audiences
for his TV show have been steadily rising since he started
spreading the word he was considering running.
