“I chose to run for president because the politicians in Washington D.C. wouldn’t do their jobs … I had never held public office before, and I didn’t have a pajillion dollars … I am proof that a common man could lead this nation, because I consider myself one of you. But because of these false and unproved accusations, it has had a tremendous painful price on my family … That being said, I am suspending my presidential campaign because of the continued distraction.”
“But let me leave you with this. I believe these words came from the ‘Pokemon’ movie. ‘Life can be a challenge. Life can seem impossible. It’s never easy when there’s so much on the line. But you and I can make a difference. There’s a mission just for you and me. Just look inside, and you will find just what you can do.’”
