NEW YORK — In his latest act of political theater, Donald Trump is again threatening a run at the White House and held an event to announce his vision for Washington Tuesday from the palatial atrium of the Trump Tower in midtown Manhattan.
The billionaire TV personality delivered a rambling speech in which he boasted about his vast wealth and powers to restore America to greatness and lobbed insults at just about everyone, including but not limited to: the Obama administration, his potential Republican rivals and Mexico.
“The fact is, the American dream is dead — but if I win, I will bring it back bigger and better and stronger than ever before,” the long-shot contender said.

“I will be the greatest jobs president that God ever created,” Trump said.
He said unemployment in the country is actually between 18 and 21 percent rather than the official governmental figure of 5.6 percent.
