WaPo’s Ben Terris writes about Tuesday’s announcement that The Donald finally did it — that is, throw his lear jet into the 2016 Republican presidential race.

Descending from a golden escalator in his namesake Trump Tower in Manhattan, the real-estate mogul declared that he will be the “greatest jobs president that God ever created” and save America from being a “laughing-stock” since its currently run by “losers.”

Trump estimated that he was “really rich:” with assets of $9.2 billion and a net worth of $8.7 billion. But he’ll have to be more specific than that in filing financial disclosure forms that are required within 30 days of announcing your candidacy. Trump is aiming to make the cut for the first Aug. 6 Fox presidential debate.

The scene was as much show as substance. Terris writes that supporters chanted:

 “We Want Trump!” as a man in a suit walked around holding out a bullhorn for them to yell in. Outside, a man who would say only that he “worked for Trump” offered passersby free T-shirts and ready-made signs to hold if they would come on in and see the show. “Only in New York,” he said to a group of tourists. “Come inside and make some memories.”

The Donald does have at least one dedicated supporter.

Pro-football player and celebrity Apprentice contestant Terrell Owens announced he was endorsing Trump, telling TMZ: “With that being said, Trump … YOU’RE HIRED”
