                                                                fraught, it flashed by in what seemed like a
                                                                New York minute.


                                                                Donald Trump endorsed Mitt Romney for
      president Thursday in a brief joint appearance at Trump's Las Vegas hotel, an occasion more
      notable for its odd brevity and lack of theater than anything either man said.


      Stepping to the microphone in an area curtained off from the marble-and-chandeliered lobby,
      Trump praised the Republican presidential hopeful as tough, smart and sharp. "He's not going to
      allow bad things to continue to happen to this country that we all love," said Trump, who for months
      toyed with a run himself as he raised unsubstantiated questions about President Obama's
      birthplace.


      Looking pleased, Romney stepped to the microphone. "There are some things that you just can't
      imagine happening in your life. This is one of them," he said. "Being in Donald Trump's
      magnificent hotel and having his endorsement is a delight."


      There were signs that it wasn't pure delight: In all, with time for applause from Romney supporters,
      the event was over in about five minutes. Neither man took questions, minimizing the possibility for
      gaffes or flamboyant statements from the famously provocative Trump. Soon afterward, the
      Romney campaign issued a long list of his endorsements, as if to place the support from the
      showman-businessman into a broader context.


      Newt Gingrich, Romney's Republican rival and the candidate some news organizations had
      incorrectly reported would receive the endorsement, cut to the Romney campaign's concerns when
      he responded with a gibe at both men.
