"So, ladies and gentlemen, I am officially running for president of the United States, and we are going to make our country great again," Donald told the crowd at the Trump Tower in NYC.
"Our country is in serious trouble. We don't have victories anymore. We used to have victories, but we don't have them. When was the last time anybody saw us beating, let's say China in a trade deal?" he continued. "I beat China all the time. All the time."
This comes on the heels of Jeb Bush announcing he's seeking a Republican nod to run for president.
