(CNN) – Donald Trump, whose penchant for questioning President Barack Obama's place of birth showed no signs of abating Friday, is helping presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney raise money. Isn't such close proximity to the "birther" conspiracy embarrassing for a candidate who's serious about becoming the next president?
That was the question posed by CNN Chief Political Analyst Gloria Borger to Romney's senior adviser Eric Fehrnstrom Friday.
(CNN) – Presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney will be joined in Las Vegas next week by two of his backers: former candidate Newt Gingrich and reality television star Donald Trump.

(CNN) – Donald Trump may have nixed a bid for the White House, but the businessman and reality television star isn't staying out of the 2012 presidential race.

(CNN) – Donald Trump demonstrated Monday that he has no qualms about going after one of Mitt Romney's chief rivals, Rick Santorum.
"There's nothing - there's no gift, no Christmas gift, that could be given better than Rick Santorum to the Democrats," Trump said in a radio interview which aired in Michigan. Democrats, he continued, "are just salivating at that. And, you know, I don't think they believe it's going to happen. But boy, would they like it to happen because that would be an easy election."
(CNN) – The Romney campaign first learned of Donald Trump’s decision to endorse Mitt Romney about 24 hours before Trump introduced the presidential candidate at a Las Vegas Hotel. A senior Romney adviser says the flamboyant billionaire businessman essentially told Romney “Hey, I think you’re the best guy for the job and I want to make it public.”
Almost anything could happen with a mercurial guy like Donald Trump on board. He has endorsed and funded many Democrats in years past, and within the past 12 months, he flirted with a Republican presidential run, mocked Romney’s business credentials and changed his party affiliation to independent.
