Donald Trump To Keynote Iowa GOP’s Lincoln Day Dinner

I’m still convinced it’s all a publicity stunt, but Donald Trump sure is making it  seem like he’s running for President:

Republican officials say Donald Trump will address the party’s Lincoln Day dinner as part of his first foray into Iowa as a possible presidential contender.

The New York billionaire and reality TV figure has already announced plans to visit New Hampshire in June.

Iowa Republican Party Chairman Matt Strawn says Trump will speak June 10 in Des Moines.

Strawn says the Iowa party invited Trump so he could introduce himself to Iowa Republicans. He noted Trump’s success as an “entrepreneur and job creator.”

Donald Trump in Iowa, that would be a sight to see.

In the meantime, I think Lewis Black summed up the Trump “candidacy” quite well on The Daily Show last night:
