| February 10, 2011--Donald
Trump's surprise appearance at CPAC, arranged by GOProud, generated
tremendous excitement. Trump elicited boos from supporters
of Ron Paul, as well as some applause from the audience, when he
declared, "By the way, Ron Paul cannot get elected, I'm sorry to tell
you." Trump elaborated, "I like Ron Paul; I think he's a good
guy, but honestly he has just zero chance of getting elected,"
prompting further hubbub. Trump said he will decide by
June. "If I run and if I win, this country will be respected
again," Trump vowed.
