Trump says no to presidential run

By The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Donald Trump says he’s not running for president.

The reality TV star said in a statement Monday that he won’t seek the Republican nomination.

He made his announcement as NBC rolled out its fall lineup. The network is home to Trump’s television show, “The Celebrity Apprentice.”

Trump has been flirting with a presidential bid for months, traveling to early primary states like New Hampshire, and heckling President Barack Obama from afar.

He is the second Republican in a matter of days to say no to a White House run. Mike Huckabee announced Saturday that he wouldn’t seek the presidency.
