News to know

Donald Trump announced Monday that he will not run for president. The real estate mogul and “Celebrity Apprentice” boss said he decided to focus on his businesses instead of pursuing the Republican candidacy. The move comes after a poll found that only 26 percent of voters thought Trump could beat President Barack Obama. Over the weekend, Mike Huckabee, another potential Republican presidential candidate, also announced that he will not run.
