Real estate mogul Donald Trump has pulled out of the Republican Party of Iowa’s annual Lincoln Day Dinner June 10, party officials said Thursday, leading the party to cancel the entire fundraiser for this year. Trump was to be the keynote speaker.

“In Iowa, your word is your bond,” GOP chairman Matt Strawn said in a release. “We are disappointed that Mr. Trump has chosen not to honor his commitment to Iowa Republicans.”

Trump, who also stars in his own reality television show “The Apprentice,” announced this week he will not run for President in 2012, saying he is “not ready to leave the private sector.”
