    Why did Donald Trump wait so long to endorse his republican candidate?

    I personally believe that he has this obsession to always be with the winning team, as most successful people are like this.

    Partly Trump's vanity, loving media attention, but he is also a PR master.  It was to his advantage as to hold off, particularly for keeping his brand in the press for his Apprentice show.  Vanity and PR genius.

    I agree with you James.  Media attention is what Donald Trump loves.  He is addicted to it.

    I had heard that the guy was actually thinking of running himself...but I guess that was just talk.

    I agree.  I think he would be devastated if he backed a losing candidate for the GOP nomination.  He waited until Romney was the clear front runner, then endorsed him.  He has quite an ego and what fascinates and frustrates me is why is his opinion newsworthy?  He is a wealthy businessman who can afford advisors, and yes people - how does that qualify him to have a "featured" opinion on the primary.

    He might have been reconsidering his own campaign... but he probably wants to be on the winning side because, when it comes right down to it, what businessman wouldn't want to be "in" with the president?

    As is the case with me, Donald Trump is throwing his support behind a proven winner.

    I agree with some here, his ego. He waited to make sure he was on the winning side of the GOP candidate. Last thing he would want to do is pick the 2nd place finisher.
