It looks like The Donald is thinking about running for the President of the United States in 2012.
When asked by Fox News, he said: “For the first time in my life, I’m actually thinking about it [running for president]…”
MSNBC then asked when he will make up his decision, and he responded: “…I’ll make it over a period of time…”.
Why run? The Donald says that there are too many issues in the US, such as the erosion of the manufacturing base to foreign competitors.
Trump says he is a Republican, but he is not ruling out the idea of running under the banner of the Tea Party.
“I am a Republican but have great respect for what the Tea Party has done because they have brought to light what’s going on. I mean, we have trillion-dollar deficits. … The country is going bankrupt, let’s face it,” he said.
