Billionaire Donald Trump has made it official: If he decides to run for president in 2012, he will do so as a Republican.

"If I run, I'm running as a Republican," the real estate mogul told the Shark Tank political website.

Trump, who continues to lead several presidential polls, including an ongoing poll by Newsmax, dismissed the likelihood that he'd run as an independent, as that would split the Republican vote and all but guarantee President Barack Obama's re-election.

Story continues below video.



That would "absolutely cause a loss for the Republicans -- it would be an Obama dream," he said.

Trump also said he was prepared to sink "tens of millions of dollars" from his own personal fortune into a presidential campaign.
