Donald Trump is seriously considering a run for president and may announce his plans after “Celebrity Apprentice” concludes in June. “The polls are very strong. I am seriously thinking about it,” the real estate mogul tells Forbes.

Asked when he might declare himself a candidate, the businessman and reality TV star says he can’t make a decision until “Celebrity Apprentice” ends in June. He says he’d consider “maybe even using the season finale as a forum.”

“I hate what’s happened to our country,” explains Trump. “I hate what’s going on in respect to how other parts of the world are taking advantage of this country, whether it’s OPEC or China or many others, and I am seriously thinking about it.”

Trump refers to a “recent poll” in which he and Bill Gates “are the only two that beat” President Obama. Evaluating the current administration, Trump says, “They don’t know what to do. They don’t get it.”

Only time will tell if Trump will move forward as a future Presidential candidate. But we can bet that if he does, he will not go down without a fight! He has the money, the power and the status. He might just be the man!
