CNN’s John King had words of praise for Newsmax and Ron Kessler after Kessler reported Donald Trump’s admission to friends at his New Year’s party that he wants to take a run at the presidency.

King said, “Newsmax reports that Trump is telling friends that he’s decided to definitely run, and will announce after the ‘Apprentice’ wrap-up this spring.”

King interviewed Trump on the show and said that thanks to Ron Kessler — “he’s a good digger” — Trump had said he was throwing his hat in the presidential ring.

Trump replied, “Well, I am seriously considering it. I see what’s going on with the country, and I see how other countries are just absolutely taking advantage of us, like we’re a whipping post . . . I see what’s going on, and I am seriously considering it.”

Trump had strong words for the U.S. and President Barack Obama on China: “when you look at China, with the manipulation of currency taking all of our jobs . . . building and making all of our products . . . virtually everything we buy today is made in China.”

Kessler’s original report, “Trump Says He Will Run for President,” quotes Trump saying that President Obama is a “disaster.”

Kessler cited a Newsmax/SurveyUSA poll that showed Trump would garner a strong 47 percent of the vote against Obama.
