Donald Trump announces 2016 exploratory committee, will visit NH
CONCORD - Donald Trump, the business billionaire, has officially announced he is forming an exploratory committee to determine whether he will run for president.
According to a release:
"I have a great love for our country, but it is a country that is in serious trouble. We have lost the respect of the entire world. Americans deserve better than what they get from their politicians --- who are all talk and no action! I have built a great company, created thousands of jobs and built a tremendous net worth with some of the finest and most prestigious assets in the world --- and very little debt! All Americans deserve the same opportunity. Our real unemployment rate is staggering while our manufacturing base is eroding on a daily basis. We must rebuild our infrastructure, control our borders, support local control of education, greatly strengthen our military, care for our veterans and put Americans back to work! We must stop other countries from totally taking advantage of our representatives who are being out-negotiated at every turn. I am the only one who can make America truly great again!"
Trump has also hired several staff members in New Hampshire, Iowa, South Carolina and New York.
Trump will be in the state Thursday to meet with local veterans and business owner. He will also stop by NH1 Media Center in Concord for an interview.
