But with that distraction seemingly out of the way, Trump tells The Washington Post that he's seriously going to run for president in 2016, for realsies this time.
The strange hair/being-a-rich-guy icon tells the newspaper that he has hired an election lawyer and is holding off on signing up for another season of NBC's Celebrity Apprentice to focus on his campaign. He also met with Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus on Monday to discuss his plans to run.
“Everybody feels I’m doing this just to have fun or because it’s good for the brand,” Trump said in an interview with The Washington Post. “Well, it’s not fun. I’m not doing this for enjoyment. I’m doing this because the country is in serious trouble.”
