Donald Trump Said to Plan June 16 Announcement
Donald Trump, the billionaire television personality who has been weighing a presidential run, is set to make a major announcement on June 16 at the Trump Tower in Manhattan, WMUR-TV reported Thursday.
The Republican plans to head to New Hampshire the following day, according to the Manchester-based station. Trump has begun assembling a political organization in the state that holds the nation's first primary.
The station cited a person close to Trump and said the person stopped short of saying outright that Trump will join the race. A Trump spokeswoman declined to comment on the WMUR report.
As of last week, Trump, 68, was polling well enough to qualify for the first GOP primary debate, to be held in August by Fox News, according to an analysis by the Washington Post. In a Quinnipiac University national poll published Thursday, Trump placed eighth with 5 percent support.
If he does declare himself a candidate, the real estate mogul would be obliged to file financial disclosure forms.
