Donald really, REALLY does not want to be president.The country is in BIG trouble and he hopes someone will step forward to fix it, but he does not want to be the one. He does not really want to become president of the USA.However, if the country is really going down the tubes, and no one steps forward, he would consider the job of POTUS … …. … but he really does not want to be the president. And he sincerely hopes that someone else will step forward.That he loves what he is doing and does not want to give that up ~ however, if no one else steps forward there may come a time when he might feel obligated to enter the presidential race out of sheer necessity ~ for the good of the country.He says that he knows there are many capable people who can fix the country, but none of them may ever run for POTUS. And, that if the situation in America became so desperate, he would consider a run for president. But that HE REALLY DOES NOT WANT THE JOB. He does not want to be POTUS. He likes what he is doing.
He could quit right now and have succeeded where no man HAS EVER SUCCEEDED. Not in the United States of America, anyway.
