The Trump-fluffing continues at Newsmax with an Aug. 9 article by Jim Meyers onhow "Donald Trump has declined an offer to deliver a prime-time speech at the Republican National Convention," citing "sources with knowledge of convention plans."
Meyers adds: "But Newsmax has learned that the billionaire businessman has been asked to deliver a big 'surprise' at the convention in Tampa, Fla., which begins on Aug. 27." But Meyers is not done fluffing:
Trump, who hosts the hit NBC show "Celebrity Apprentice," is also said to be mulling an offer from ABC to join Barbara Walters in her live coverage of election night this November.
Trump’s people also have told the Romney campaign that while he fully supports the Republican candidate’s presidential bid, he cannot spend the full week in Tampa due to pressing global business pursuits.
That focus is what kept Trump out of a presidential run, even though he catapulted to the lead of a presumed field of Republican candidates after he told Newsmax and other media that he was strongly considering a run.
