WASHINGTON (AP) — Real estate mogul Donald Trump says he’s thinking about running for president, saying “everybody’s ripping off the United States.”
Trump told George Stephanopoulus in an interview he doesn’t actually want to run, but says he’s worried about the country’s future and thinks he could be the person to stand up to America’s rivals. He singled out China for criticism in the interview, accusing Beijing of manipulating its currency to gain unfair advantage of the United States in global trade competition.READ MORE: Newborn Twins Found Dead In Queens, Mother In Custody
He has shown interest in the past in running for president, in both 1988 and 2000. But in the interview, Trump said, “I am thinking about things.” He said he expects to decide by June and said he’d likely run as a Republican if he enters the race.
