Trump Looking More And More Like An Independent Candidate
Donald Trump said on Monday that he has his "ducks in line" to run as a third-party candidate for president when the new season of Celebrity Apprentice ends. (Season 3 premieres on Wednesday.) Appearing on Fox and Friends , Trump was asked about the group of supporters who filed paperwork in Texas to establish the Make America Great Again Party, with hopes of nominating Trump to head it. "Frankly, I think it's a great name, make America great. That's a beautiful name," Trump said. He had previously flirted with the idea of running as a Republican but quashed that idea because, under the FCC's equal time rule, it would have cost him his NBC TV series, On Monday, he said he'd "love" to run as an independent if Republicans don't choose a candidate who can win. He also made it clear that, so far, he hasn't seen such a candidate emerge.
