Trump to endorse Romney in US Republican race, sources say

WASHINGTON - Businessman and reality TV personality Donald Trump is endorsing Mitt Romney in the race for the 2012 US Republican nomination, sources said on Thursday, a day after US media reported the real estate mogul would be endorsing Romney's rival Newt Gingrich.

Trump, himself an on-again/off-again candidate for president and former Republican, will announce his support for Romney on Thursday, a source close to the Romney campaign and a Republican familiar with the decision said.

CNN had initially reported Trump's backing for Romney. The cable network reported he would make his announcement on Thursday in Las Vegas, citing sources with knowledge of the endorsement.

Thursday's news was a direct contradiction to reports on Wednesday, citing sources close to Gingrich's campaign, that Trump would endorse the former speaker of the US House of Representatives in Las Vegas on Thursday.
