Donald Trump will not be adding the White House to his luxury resort holdings. The Donald on Monday took himself off the 2012 Republican presidential candidate list.

The wealthy real estate magnate with the complicated hairdo was the ultimate tease. He used his star power as a television celebrity to publicly flirt with a campaign, even though it was never entirely clear whether he really is a Republican.

Trump, who announced his decision in a written statement on Monday, was the loudest of many voices to call into question whether President Barack Obama was really born in the United States, becoming the unofficial leader of the "birther" movement.
