Discussing President Obama's effect on business during his tenure in office, Trump stated in an interview, "I think he has been not good for business." Coming from a man worth $2.9 Billion and who has spent his life building successful businesses, that has got to sting.
But Trump does not stop there. Regarding President Obama's experience, with the economy and more, Trump has no kind words, stating, "I think he’s totally over his head.” The President, who has spent years trying to down-play his lack of experience, is once again hammered.
However, an even bigger question arose concerning Trump during the interview. While Trump's criticism of the President may seem out of the blue, even if justified, questions later in the conversation may have brought out the real reason why Trump was trouncing Obama: Mr. Trump is mulling over a Presidential run in 2012.
However, looking at his recent comments regarding China and the President's foreign policy, Trump is clearly giving a Presidential bid some thought.
In another recent interview with George Stephanopoulos, Trump stated,
"I am thinking about things. And I'm looking at this country ... and what's happened in terms of respect, and the respect for this country is just not there... I have many people from China that I do business with, they laugh at us. They feel we're fools. And almost being led by fools. And they can't believe what they're getting away with.”Will Trump run? The question is in the air, but only one person knows for sure.
