Barack Obama vs. Donald Trump….The Showdown begins…

HedgeFundLIVE — If 30 is really the new 20, could Trump really become the new Obama?

According to an interview between George Stephanopoulos and the well known billionaire, Donald Trump seems to be interested in running for presidency in the 2012 election. He, however, has not made a final decision yet, and says he will not do so until June 2011. If he does decide to run, he has made it clear that he will be running as a republican president. This may not be such a bad look for this wealthy CEO, real-estate developer, socialite, author and celebrity TV personality.

Son of Fred Trump, a real-estate developer and self-made millionaire, Donald was heavily influenced by his father’s success and leadership skills from a very young age. His brief flirtation with the idea of going to film school before deciding to go to school for business might have been the underlying reason for starting his show “The Apprentice” on CNBC.

And although this mogul is known for his hard-work, extravagant lifestyle, celebrity status, and business sense (both nationally and internationally), he is no fool to the political world. He has already thought about ideas and actions he’d make, if elected, in order to boost the current U.S. economic situation.

According to him, China laughs at us (Americans) and thinks we are fools. The products we used to make here in America are now being created there in China, allowing them to manipulate the currency, which ultimately makes it very hard for us to compete against them.

Trump’s solution would be to tax China. According to him, “we have the cards, because we’re the one’s spending all of our money in China.” It doesn’t matter that they are our bankers, because “bankers don’t have the cards.”

He has launched a website and is now drafting supporters in Iowa and New Hampshire at Will he be able to provide the change we’ve been looking for?
