Donald Trump says he is not running for governor of New York.

Trump said on Twitter Friday that he will not run for governor but has "much bigger plans in mind."

Michael Cohen, Trump's special counsel, confirmed that Trump will not run.

Trump has been flirting with challenging Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo for some months.

But he has said he would run only if he faced no rival for the Republican nomination.

Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino announced this month that he will seek the Republican nomination for governor.

Trump said on Twitter that the New York Republican Party leadership is "dysfunctional."

New York Republican State Committee spokesman David Laska says party officials are sorry that Trump "won't be bringing his talents to the gubernatorial race."
