Donald Trump the billionaire real estate tycoon has announced he is stepping down from the Republican race to be the President of the United States.
In a surprise move, the favourite for the Republican nomination announced at a press conference last night that, “it was only a joke. It just got a bit out of hand.”
 
Journalists attending the press conference asked questions as to what Trump had said over the course of his campaign, namely the wall he committed to build between Mexico and the USA.
 
“That was one of the stupidest things ever. I was watching Game of Thrones, and I just thought – people will love this. But I admit, the idea of the wall isn’t totally absurd, so I had to come up with a way to make the situation ludicrous – that’s where the idea of getting Mexico to pay for it came in.”
 
Trump supporters across the US are in shock this morning with one supporter saying, “I don’t get it. He was going to make America great. And it was all a joke?”
 
In response to the shock of his supporters at this sudden announcement, Trump said, “Well, I suppose I had my fun, and that’s all that matters.”
 
Meanwhile this morning, Trump announced this morning that his real estate company is to build 500 new Mosques across the US.
