As you may have heard, Donald Trump has been mulling a run for president, which he says he'll make a final decision on by June. In the meantime, he's been putting his credentials out there, in case anyone thinks he's not the right guy for the job. In terms of dealing with foreign leaders and dignitaries, The Don says his experience cannot be beat (and should he turn down the president gig, feel free to offer him Secretary of State, a position for which he's also eminently qualified). "I sell them real estate for tremendous amounts of money," he said. "I mean, I've dealt with everybody." To that end, a quick story to illustrate why you should vote Trump.

As he tells it, not too long ago, Trump brokered a deal with a guy who's been getting a lot of press lately.

"I rented [Gadhafi] a piece of land. He paid me more for one night than the land was worth for two years, and then I didn't let him use the land," Trump boasted. "That's what we should be doing. I don't want to use the word 'screwed', but I screwed him."

The land in question was some space in Bedford, NY, where Gadhafi wanted to pitch a tent for one night while he was in town giving a speech at the UN. Of course, at the time, Trump apparently didn't even know Gadhafi was the guy renting the space, but those are just details and of little import. Mr. President!
