Trump Cleared for Texas Presidential Bid

Sunday, 01 January 2012 11:32 PM EST

Donald Trump supporters filed paperwork in Texas for the business mogul and celebrity to run as a third-party candidate there, The Blaze reports.

Trump himself acknowledged he met the official ballot deadline in Texas.

Trump supporters filed paperwork on Friday creating the “Make America Great Again Party,” which would allow Trump to be on the primary ballot, should he decide to run.

Texas State law requires the paperwork be notarized and filed by Jan 2.

“I am aware and flattered by this filing by my supporters in Texas,” Trump said in a statement. “I have not authorized anyone to act on my behalf and am not a candidate for president at this time. I will not, however, rule out a third-party candidacy if the Republicans nominate a candidate who cannot defeat Obama and I recently changed my party registration in New York state to preserve my legal option to appear on the ballot in all 50 states if I do decide to run.”
