Trump: Accountants are working on federal disclosure forms

(CNN) – There is one more sign Donald Trump is preparing to become a presidential candidate.

The real estate mogul told CNN's National Correspondent Susan Candiotti that his accountants are already hard at work on the financial paperwork required of candidates.

"They're in the process," he said in a Friday phone interview. Trump continued to say he won't disclose his net worth until he announces whether he's running.

"I don't want to ruin the suspense," he said.

Trump promised the financial forms would be released "simultaneously" with any potential announcement to run for President. Asked whether the prying forms have been uncomfortable for him to answer, Trump shot back, "nothing makes me uncomfortable."

    I think being fired by the GObP and having the American people turn on "the Donald" would make this egomaniac uncomfortable! When people say NO to a bully, the bully freaks out!

    Trump's filed bankruptcy so many times because he was uncomfortable and we all know that no one files if they are "comfortable". Trump's a liar and incapable of telling the truth and nothing but the whole truth.

    No one is expecting anything from you, Donald. There isn't any suspense to ruin.

    Madre de dios! How I wish this bloviating grifter would shut up! He has to be a secret Dem operative. He just has to be.

    Trump says he will show his "financials" when the president shows his birth certificate. PLEASE, Mr. President, please keep refusing to become part of this birther fiasco, then maybe this idiot will go away.

    Is that REALLY the smirk (notice the bushy eyebrows – can't afford a brow trim) that you want representing YOU?

    I hope there is someone, other than Trump's paid-for-lackeys, who verifies that this info is true.

    Look at this guy and tell me with straight face that he is presidential!!!! He is a complete clown, wacky hairdo and all. The only thing he needs is a big round nose. And for many people, clowns outside of the circus arena, kind of give people the creeps.
    Not to mention his over-the-top bogus billionaire claims.
    Not to mention his poor grasp of the english language. He sounds dumber than George Bush except with a New York accent.
    There is absolutely nothing that indicates this clown would be anything more than a joke that would embarrass our country. We do not need another Berlusconi.

    This crack pot is really jerking the country around. He's so full of himself it's a shame. As much as I dislike Sarah Palin, given a choice between Trump and Palin, I would vote for Palin and move to Canada.

    Good this will finally put Trump to rest on his pretend campaign for President. He could never pass the vetting process even though he has been runiing for POTUS for the past 25 years. I am sure most people could not care less about what he says he is worth and it does not add a thing to his credibility. His trademark worth went down huge when he started his birther campaign and we he was 100% wrong on China, then 100% wrong on OPEC it declined even further. After the last couple months of this loudmouths antics I am sure millions of people are making sure they dont pay one cent towards anything that has the name Trump on it. All by himself Trump has degraded his business and trademark value with his stupidity and I am sure he is not far from yet another bankruptcy or two. Trump is the Ultimate Chump>

    Don't ever underestimate the evil svengali Karl Rove. I do have to admit though he can spot a loser, he knows politics. The fact that he worked behind the scenes for Rick Perry didn't come out until after the election. My point is, Trump is perhaps the biggest fraud in America. But, he is a bufoon and not a politician. The media will gobble him up and the American people will devour what ever is left.

    trump is such a total f@#king jerk. He's managed to loose billions of $$ and now he has a plan for the USA?? Hello... What is this country coming to? If he ever became prez – I'm pretty sure I would look for a new country to become a resident of.

    My guess is they are hard at work modifying Trump's info to make him look better than he does. It really isn't that hard to do ...

    I believe those are the same people he has working on the birther conspiracy. We will never hear the results of either investigation if there were one.

    Mr. "Birther" can't be serious. No one with two brain cells will vote for him. Unfortunately, there are enough TPers to make him think he can win. Please run Mr. Trump and make Sarah Palin your VP. America could use a laugh. Oh and also, why don't you and your Republican buddies create some of those jobs you promised?
