American billionaire real estate mogul, Donald Trump, announced on Tuesday that he is seeking the Republican nomination to run for President of the United States.

“Ladies and gentlemen, I am officially running for President of the United States, and we are going to make our country great again,” the businessman and reality TV star said as he announced his bid at the Trump Tower in New York.

“I will be the greatest jobs president that God ever created,” he added to applause from the crowd.

Trump, 68, was quick to tell supporters that he is really rich: “That’s the kind of thinking you need for this country. It sounds crass but it’s not crass.” He added that he has a total net worth of more than $8 billion, and he plans on running his campaign with his own money.

Trump also said in a recent interview that the theme of his campaign is “Make America Great Again.”

“The politicians, and I know all of them, they’re never going to make this country great.

“I’m the most successful person ever to run for the presidency, by far. Nobody’s ever been more successful than me. I’m the most successful person ever to run.

“Ross Perot isn’t successful like me. (Mitt) Romney, I have a Gucci store that’s worth more than Romney,” he said.

Trump also addressed the issue of ISIS in the interview.

“I have an absolute way of defeating ISIS, and it would be decisive and quick and it would be very beautiful. Very surgical.

“If I tell you right now, everyone else is going to say: ‘Wow, what a great idea.’

“You’re going to have 10 candidates going to use it and they’re going to forget where it came from, which is me.”
