Businessman and TV personality Donald Trump is forming a presidential exploratory committee.

Trump, who has frequently flirted with presidential runs in the past, said in a statement that “I am the only one who can make America truly great again!”

Trump has formed an exploratory committee before, back in 1999, but he never launched a formal run for the White House.

A NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll earlier this month found that 74 percent of GOP primary voters said that they could not see themselves supporting Trump for the Republican nomination.
