Donald Trump, in Tweets and Comments, Fuels Talk of '16 Run

By    |   Monday, 24 November 2014 01:00 PM

Donald Trump's Twitter feed was dominated by messages of support for a possible presidential run in 2016 — alongside his tweets of praise for New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and compliments on the upgrades at Trump Las Vegas, .

"I decided that I'll choose to live in the US when you are the president," tweeted @iamnextroom. "Good choice!" Trump tweeted back.

"The next president of United States. My president Donald Trump. In 2016," tweeted @sintianiej to @realDonaldTrump.

Another included a reply that further stoked talk of a 2016 run.

"Are u running for president in 2016 or not?" asked @Nehemiah_israel. "We will soon see!" Trump replied.

The tweets were just the latest signal Trump has given that he is contemplating a run.

During a trip to Iowa in October, Trump said he wanted to wait until the midterm elections were concluded and which other candidates were considering running for the GOP nomination.

"We'll see who's running, we're going to see what happens, first of all in the next month because it's going to be very interesting, and then after that, we'll make a decision sometime after the beginning of the year," Trump said during a news conference in West Des Moines, the Des Moines Register reported.

Trump, who was in the state to attend a fundraiser for Republican Rep. Steve King, said he's decide whether to launch a campaign probably at the start of the new year.

The real estate mogul also has made three visits to the home of the first presidential primary — New Hampshire.

His most recent appearance was on Nov. 12, where he spoke at the annual Nackey S. Loeb First Amendment Awards, NECN reports.

Speaking with reporters after the event, the inevitable question of his 2016 intentions was asked.

"I look at the candidates. I'm not seeing the person that I would choose. I'm doing a lot of exciting things that I love. But I love the country far more than the things I'm doing. So we'll see the candidates. We'll see what happens," he said, the New Hampshire Union Leader reported.

Trump also raised the possibility of a potential run while making his weekly appearance on Fox News' "Fox & Friends" program.

"I may surprise you. I may not be able to do your highest rated segment anymore on Monday morning because if I run, they won't allow me to do it, right?" he asked in reference to Fox News' recent decision to sever ties with contributor Ben Carson after he released a one-hour documentary that raised speculation he was considering a presidential campaign.


In response to Fox host Steve Doocy's question about his future plans, Trump replied, "Well, I'm gonna look at it. I'm going to be looking at who's running."

"If I decide to run, I think I would be a great president," Trump said.

During this morning's weekly appearance, however, Trump did not refer to his own prospects. Instead, he focused his comments on criticizing Republicans for not taking strong enough action against Obama and arguing that grounds exist for impeaching Obama because "he certainly did something that was unconstitutional [with Obamacare]."

"But I think certainly he could be impeached and certainly [Republicans] could shut down the government," he said.
