He’s back! Donald Trump has entered the 2016 Presidential race.
“Ladies and gentlemen, I am officially running for president of the United States, and we are going to make our country great again,” he said.
“We need somebody that literally will take this country and make it great again. We can do that,” he said. “Ladies and gentlemen, I am officially running for president of the United States, and we are going to make our country great again.”
A choice moment from his speech was when Trump said that China is Tom Brady and the New England Patriots and the United States is a college football team.
The reality TV star and billionaire real estate mogul is best known in political circles for his extreme fear of China and hatred of Mexican immigrants.
Reaction was mixed on social media.
@realDonaldTrump is more competent, creative, tough, experienced, courageous and bold than most of the announced candidates for president.

Trump is expected to participate in the first Republican debate on Aug. 6. A maximum of 10 spots are given, reserved for GOP candidates with the highest approval in the polls.
We cannot wait for the late night talk shows to have a field day with all the craziness from that debate.
