(CNN) - On the same day he decided against a bid for the 2012 GOP presidential nomination, real estate mogul Donald Trump is "reassessing his commitment" to appear in Iowa at the annual Lincoln Day Dinner, according to the Iowa Republican Party.
"While our invitation to Mr. Trump never hinged on a potential Trump candidacy, Iowans responded enthusiastically and with great interest in his appearance at our annual Lincoln Day Dinner," Iowa GOP spokesman Casey Mills said in a statement Monday. "Today, it is our understanding that Mr. Trump is reassessing his commitment."
Mills said the party expects a decision Tuesday about the June 10th dinner in the first-in-the-nation caucus state.
A spokesperson for Trump did not immediately return a request for comment.
Ooopsie Daisy...the self-promoting narcissist lost the wind from his sails after his right-wing nut agenda of birthers got debunked.
Glad finally the media circus around Trump is pretty much over. The GOP hail mary was a desperate attempt to shake things up. In reality it just exposed both the GOP and Trump as frauds.
Who's Donald Trump?
So, with that I bid you farewell. "OK Scotty, beam me up".
Trump sounds a lot like Gump – Forest Gump.
Trump is only trying to fix his image that he's important by declining and you would do the same if you took that brusing beatdown he got at Obama's dinner. All is Trump cards are folding and where's that financial exhibit he promised.
Yes, "politics", just weren't the right thing for Trump, he wants to go back to what he really loves, "scamming people"! or maybe his other love "being Ronald McDonald!
So I suppose all the GOP attendees with sponsored trips will go to the strips clubs instead, huh....???
WOW...Repubs you need to get your act together. This is becoming downright embarrassing. Where are your quality candidates with reasonable ideas & motives? This is just SAD!!!
"ha ha" – Nelson from the Simpsons
obviously, he has not received enough attention on his reality show. it just goes to show you how the american public can be led around by the nose. can we become any less intelligent as a whole?
Backed out of David Letterman show
Backed out of NASCAR
Backing out of dinner with in Iowa
Backed over the cliff.
Another great day in the U.S., memories of May 1, 2011. I guess he realized if he were president, he could not benefit from filing for Bankruptcy in the name of the United States of America. He will just stay in the private sector, where he can build up his Bankruptcy Portfolio. What a great month, May 2011, first Osama, then Trump.
trump just shows what a chump he is. Please he is such a joke. he can't take the heat. he got really quite after POTUS went after him. yeah let him to back to running the business of the buildings that bear his name that he doesn't own. he is a big blowhard fraud!!!!!!!!
I think the White House Correspondents Dinner really shook him. Like Sarah Palin, he's one of those guys that can dish it out, but he just can't take it.
Donald Trump is the PT Barnum of 2011. Barnum's quote of "A sucker is born every minute" comes to mind.
The scary thing is so many GOP/Tea Party wingnuts actually took Trump's brief run for the nomination seriously. Makes you wonder if a truly serious and qualified candidate have a chance in the GOP presidential primary.
Ovviously, his birther ploy did not work, Obama one upped him at the WH dinner.
so, can;t take the heat, get out of the kitchen, good thing he did !
No surprise, bucko... It was always about the "brand", not the country.
TRUMPET had to do something – his show was LOSING listeners and his salary was in jeopardy!!! He knew he could NEVER be president – he just wanted to "make some noise" and create his own reality show !!
Trump is full of shasta.
Trump said he'd spend $500M of his own money to run for President. The only problem, HE DOESN"T HAVE $500M liquid to spend and no one with any sense was going to give this 64 year old Super Egotist any campaign contributions to defray the cost. Once he relaized this, given how much he worships what little money he has, there was no way Donald Chump was going to run.
Trump isn't a conservative, he is an opportunist. Remember, this is a man that favored a 15% tax on the net worth of people to pay off the national debt. That borders on socialism, according to the Tea Party types. Trump was pro-choice when he thought he might knock up a floozie and need to be able to terminate a pregnacy legally. How can a man that has been married thrice, bankrupt FOUR times have any credibility among so-called conservatives in Iowa?
As John McEnroe says, "You CAN NOT be serious:!
