Donald Trump Tells Fox 5 He is ‘Seriously Considering a Run’ for President

Donald Trump has made a career out of building luxury skyscrapers in New York and casinos in Atlantic City.

Now, Trump may be ready for the biggest challenge of his life. 

Trump, the real estate mogul and host of NBC’s The Apprentice, says that for the first time in his life, he’s “seriously considering a run” for President of the United States.

Speaking on Fox 5′s Good Day New York in the hours after the midterm elections, he told anchors Greg Kelly and Rosanna Scotto that he is “worried about the direction the country is going in” referring to the multi-trillion dollar national debt, among other problems.

“We are rebuilding China. Everything is made in China. It’s scary,” said Trump who acknowledged when his company builds buildings many of the materials including windows are ordered from China.

“Do we make anything in this country anymore?” quipped the New York City resident.

Trump says he is a registered Republican and would seek the GOP nomination if he decides to run.

Trump also railed against the new voting machines being used in New York.  He complained that there is a lack of privacy and the machine he used didn’t work correctly.  He claims that it took him 15 minutes to complete his vote.
