BOCA RATON – ( -Donald Trump seemed to feel right at home before a Boca Raton Tea Party Tax Rally on Saturday addressing the issues the crowd feels strongly about. 

Trump says he’s pro life, opposes gun control, favors sealing our borders and is against President Obama’s health care legislation. 

But Trump says what needs to be remedied immediately is the way, in his view, foreign countries are taking advantage of the U.S. 

“If I run and win, our country will be respected again andChina, OPEC, and all of the many nations ripping off this great country of ours will be dealt with very, very differently,” Trump told the crowd. 

Thousands turned out in a small downtown park Saturday to see the debut of Trump on the stump. 

A day earlier, Trump sounded like a man preparing to run for the nation’s highest office. 

He was at a Centennial celebration for the Town of Palm Beachat Mar-a-Lago Friday criticizing President Obama’s foreign policy, healthcare plan and questioning the President’s birthplace. 

“He’s the worst president in the history of theUnited States,” Trump said in a ballroom glittering with gold accents and inlays. “He’s been a terrible president. It’s very important that he be replaced.” 

Trump even took a swipe at former President George W. Bush. 

“If it weren’t for George Bush we wouldn’t have Barack Obama,” Trump said. “(Bush) didn’t have a great presidency especially at the end and because of his actions and because of his aura it was very tough for a Republican to win (in 2008).” 

The questions continue to swirl around a possible Trump candidacy as a Republican for 2012. Trump refuses to commit saying he’ll decide by the beginning of June, which leads some to believe he is flirting with the presidency as a way to boost ratings for his show, “Celebrity Apprentice.” 

Trump dismissed that allegation too saying he’s so serious about a possible run that he cannot commit to an extension of the show. 

“I cannot make a decision yet and that’s a big commitment because you’re talking about a lot of money —  even for a rich person,” Trump told reporters.

      Yeah, while you are at it – why don’t you add Paula Abdul, & Simon Cowell (after all, if Trump thinks Obama isn’t a citizen, I’m Simon can surely run & get elected). Now you know what happened in your state of Florida – you were so gunho to elect anyone – no matter who it was, as long as it wasn’t a Democrat – so – TAH DAH – RICK SCOTT!!! Isn’t that decision coming back to bite you in the butt??

    Barry will be a community organizer in Chicago again…Trump will wipe the floor with him in any debate on any subject…I can just see it now…Barry looking for that damn teleprompter and Soros to tell him what to say. The pucker factor will be running high my friends…especially with Barry hiding his birth certificate and now being called to the turf on it as an election cycle looms. This will go down as one the wildest election cycles this country has ever seen…can you feel it? 🙂

    GO Trump, It would be awesome to see a person who actually cares abut the United States and the position it should be in, we should not be on our knees, we should be rising up and taking the ring I would gladly place my faith in Mr. Trump. I will be first in line. Mr. Trump may have been married 3 times but he has taken care of his responsibilities and then some. Get the presses running I got Trump in 2012!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Before “the Donald” even suggests to run for President of the United States, he needs to make sure the American Flag is displayed properly. Notice in this video, the flag is displayed behind him with the Union to the right. It should always be to the left when viewed by the public.
