Real estate mogul/TV personality Donald Trump likes President Barack Obama personally. But the Donald isn’t too impressed with the president’s job performance, Politico reports
“I respect him; I like him; I think he’s wonderful in many ways,” Trump said on MSNBC. “I think he has been not good for business, and honestly – and very sadly – the world does not respect this country, and therefore, I think the world doesn’t respect our leader. He’s a nice man, but I think he’s totally over his head.”
Trump’s name has been floated as a potential challenger to Obama in 2012 – principally by himself and the media. If he does run, it will be as a Republican, Trump says. “I’m a Republican.”
But he says he would “prefer not running,” noting that he’s “buying a lot of things right now – it’s a great time to buy things right now.”
