(CNN) – Can Donald Trump go from “The Apprentice” to the Oval Office? The real estate mogul and reality TV show host made his White House aspirations official Tuesday at New York’s Trump Tower.

“Ladies and gentlemen, I am officially running for President of the United States and we are going to make our country great again”, said Trump.

Trump also released a summary of his net worth, totaling nearly nine billion dollars.

Trump has flirted with running for president in the past, but this is the first time he’s thrown hit hat into the ring.

He is the 12th major candidate to enter the crowded republican race for next year.
