(CNN) – Real estate mogul Donald Trump served up a profanity laced speech to Republican supporters in Las Vegas Thursday night, attacking American policies and continuing his flirtation with a run for the GOP presidential nomination.
At a reception hosted by two Republican women's groups at the Treasure Island Casino, Trump acknowledged he is not the typical candidate for president, and may lose in 2012, but is still serious about a bid for the White House.
"I'll think about it," Trump said when an audience member asked him to run. "You probably won't be disappointed."
Trump, who has said he will decide by June whether to run for president, also criticized the price of oil in his remarks, one of the mantras adopted by the reality TV star of late.
"They (OPEC) want to go in and raise the price of oil because we have nobody in Washington that sits back and says you're not going to raise that f-ing price, you understand me?" Trump said.
He also boiled down the war in Iraq for the conservative crowd.
"We build a school, we build a road. They blow up the road. They blow up the school. We build another school, we build another road, they blow them up," Trump said. "We build again, in the meantime we can't get a f-king school built in Brooklyn."
Trump, who was in the Silver State to attend the wedding of billionaire casino owner Steve Wynn, has spent the last two months questioning the president's birth place, an issue largely put to rest Wednesday when President Obama released the long-form version of the certificate.
Nevada may have an influential role in shaping the race for the GOP presidential nomination, with its caucus scheduled third in the primary and caucus calendar.
And that's the GOP's #1 candidate right there... shows what that party is about.
This malignant megalomaniac and narcissistic neanderthal needs to talk responsibly, lest he will lose the support of his own henchmen and sycophantic stooges.
He may have used profanity but he told the truth. It is what it is. Starting to like this guy more and more. No phony political grandstanding. He says it like it is and how he feels.
WHY on earth are Republicans even considering this guy as a candidate? It makes no sense! Come on Republicans, give us someone, ANYONE who is moderate and has some sense. Trump is a total joke.
Go Donald Forrest Gump !!!
Now can we see your tax returns you promised to releaser if Obama provided his birth certificate.
PS.... Were you concerned how George W Bush got into Yale with grades that he nearly flunked out of higgh school on?
yeah, and i'm sure OPEC will listen......
What a classless bloviated blowhard. He will never be president.
sorry trump...not good enough American President behaviour!!!
Hint to CNN; STOP giving this guy constant media attention, that is what will make him go away.
What's that I hear? Is that Trump's chances of a nomination being destroyed? Yes, I think so!
Anyone that takes this talking hairpiece seriously should be sent to psychiatric hospital for extensive tests. Hey Trump..since you won't get the GOP nomination, run as an independent. Your sheep will follow you over the cliff as Obama is elected in a landslide
He's a whiner. The man has offered no solutions. He has no clue how the real world works. OPEC does not set the price, the markets do. OPEC can control how much they produce, which can have a major effect price, but OPEC does not set nor directily control the price.
Remember the time Bush went to Saudi Arabia to negotiate higher production back in 2008 when we were paying $4 at the pump? His request was declined. A Democrat promising and end to wars got elected, Saudis and Kuwaitis increased their production, the price of oil plummeted and we had $2 gas by Obama's inauguration day. Remember?
Gee, real "presidential" speech there, Trump. There's no place in the White House for egotistical thugs, and that's what you are.
Republicans appear incapable of selecting candidates who might represent America in the world arena. This guy should be fleecing marks in a carnival sideshow. His daddy gave him money but he failed to give him class – except for the low variety.
The phrase "what you are speaks so loudly I can't hear what you're saying" comes to mind.
What? This suppose to be America's hero for president? 'PRAVDA won't really let me say what I want to say.
With his best qualification for presidency, I think, he should run for it from GOP.....way to go.....Trump, do not lose your grip on it...go for it....
What a disgrace!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Really. A women's group, when has he even respected the women he was married to, and you guys want him to represent the GOP?! What about the Evangelical sect of the GOP, are they going to support him and his foul language. I was always taught the use of profanity shows an ignorant mind that cannot express itself intelligently. Sorry "The Blacks" will pass on Mr. Trump.
If it hasn't been made seriously clear to everybody that Trump has NOTHING, then you need to check your vitals. This egomaniac has nothing left behind his debunked Plan A – conspiracy theories other than lying about how the oil industry works to people that know better. And of course, being in business – Donald himself knows better. The oil industries around the world are in it for PROFITS. The US oil industry is not government controlled. No US President has ever had control over gas prices at any time. No president. Trump knows this. He is just blowing hot air for attention.
Tell it like it is Trump!!!
you have my vote – time to get rid of the "life-long" poloticians with "more of the same"
curse, kick, scream... you're the most refreshing voice since Perot!!!!
This guy has made himself so so big FOOL. Before is say he willl win now he is not product for the presidency and will not win. All we asking is to open his books. the president has open tot he public his private doc-birth certificate now the BIG FOOL MUST do what he promised.
Real Presidential, Mr. Trump.
Can CNN start putting any story with Donald Trump's name under the Entertainment Section instead of Politics?
The fact that he is being taken seriously is an indicator that the country has already gone to hell. I live in NYC, and the Trump I see is one who before they even went to trial took out full page ads in the local papers and demanded the death penalty for 5 or 6 kids accused(accused mind you not convicted) of raping a woman in Central Park. When they were later exonerated by DNA and the confession of the true perpetrator, no apology from Trump. The Trump I have seen is a bully who pushes around those who cannot defend themselves, takes pride in cheating others and generally loses money for his investors. As for really running for POTUS all I hear is chickens clucking.
