Didn't he get bailed out a while back?

His participation is in the form of the supposed value his name confers rather than risking his own money. If the project works out his return comes from a percentage taken off the top. If it fails other people lose, and he then walks away from the failure, trusting in the short attention span of most of the American public. Mr. Trump is certainly free to seek the nomination for Governor of New York from the Republicans, or from the Democrats too if he chooses to switch parties. But I doubt that Mr. Trump's candidacy would advance the debate over finally ending the ludicrous moratorium on HVHF in New York. Any political run for office by Mr. Trump would quickly degenerate into nothing more than a referendum on Donald Trump rather than anything of much substance.
