    Which is it? Other news organizations reporting Trump Endorses Gingrich. Trump is a goober anyways so it doesn't really matter. But getting the news right, does.

    In all class struggles the hereditary rich support one another against the other classes. The 1% always closes ranks. This should surprise no one.

    ... didn't he leave the Republican Party? I mean, does anyone legitimately care what Trump thinks at this point?

    With all the bad press about Romney being out of touch with 90-99% of the nation, I'm sure having a fellow multi-millionaire endorse him is not the best move.

    Trump seems to think actually matters. He's basically NYC's mascot.

    Eek! I think you got your story wrong CNN. Just read an AP report in the Wall Street Journal that says Trump is endorsing Gingrich, not Romney. Check again...

    This endorsement is a BAD thing for Romney!

    Thank you Donald! NBC was reporting this morning that you were going to endorse Newt and I was scratching my head.

    Trump does not want to pay his fair share... nasty business!

    Great, a wealthy elitist backing another wealthy elitist. He joins the handful of the 1%ers bankrolling the romney campaign and the super pacs. Romneys campaign is painting a real clear picture of the garbage the citizens united ruling is. Romney has 62 really wealthy people funding his run – very few small donors. Again, the very wealthy trying to control the direction of the country.

    Trumps endorsement is more of a joke than a compliment. Who is Simon Cowell going to endorse? It's equally pertinent.

    Other news agencies are reporting Trump with endorse Gingrich, NOT MITT. I realize all Republicans are the same to the elite media, but this is somewhat ridiculous.
