Hmmm…can you imagine me speaking at the RNC Convention in Tampa?http://t.co/SDZUsknQ That’s a speech everyone would watch.— Donald J. Trump
Donald Trump is beginning to campaign for a big speaking slot at the Republican National Convention in Tampa this year, asking his Twitter followers to “imagine him speaking at the RNC Convention” today.
One of Trump’s advisors told the Daily Caller that Trump’s “massive popularity is just one of the many reasons he is being sought as a keynote speaker at the Tampa RNC Convention.”
Trump then tweeted a link to the article, adding, “That’s a speech everyone would watch.”
Speakers at the convention won’t be chosen until later in the summer. Trump’s last big foray into the election was his much-hyped endorsement of Mitt Romney in February.
