(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."
