Trump confirms he will endorse Romney

(CNN) - Celebrity business magnate Donald Trump endorsed Mitt Romney for president Thursday, telling reporters he will not mount an independent campaign if Romney is the Republican nominee.

Trump, who has repeatedly flirted with the possibility of his own White House bid, revealed his decision in Las Vegas two days before Nevada's Saturday caucuses.

    All I can say is WOW to the people using the "I like to fire people" and "the very poor" quotes about Romney. Seriously people! If all you have against Mitt Romney is a couple quotes taken way out of context then that is very sad.

    Has Trump fully reviewed Willard's long form birth certificate? Does Trump know that Romney's father wasn't born in this country?

    Who isTrump? (Just kidding!) He would do anything to keep his name in the news, and is as disgusting as they come. If I was Romney, I'd tell Trump: PLEASE, do NOT endorse me! Do me a favor and go endorse my opponent instead!

    Trump is like Fredo in the "Godfather". A weasel who's always looking for his angle, and never sees how his actions effect anyone else – typical of who GOP worships as celebrities.

    Why is anyone giving Trump The Hair Desperado any credence? He's a loser carnival barker.
    Watch Mitt smile like an idiot at the endorsement and break down inside–screaming to

    How embarassing for Mitt. Tough to look gracious when such a despicable man honors you.

    I personally don't think much about endorsements. Some people will vote for someone just because he/she was endorsed by so and so and that is what they hope for. Well I am not a sheep, I have a brain and do use it from time to time.

    I would love to see a candidate reject an endorsement one of these days. In the case of Trump, it couldn't happen to a more deserving guy.
