(Newser) – A little more than six months after President Obama's re-election, Donald Trump is once again making noises about a White House bid. The Celebrity Apprentice star—who played will-he-or-won't he for months during the 2012 campaign—has spent $1 million on electoral research and claims many people have urged him to run for president, the New York Post reports. "We did not spend $1 million on this research for it just to sit on my bookshelf," a Trump spokesman says. "At this point Mr. Trump has not made any decision on a political run, but what I would say is that he is exactly what this country needs."

He does this to for the attention, whenever he needs to feed his ego.But he will never run, because he knows he will lose, which would be too severe a blow to his massive ego.
