Donald Trump is “seriously thinking” about running for president, and Wednesday said he could win, adding he doesn’t see Sarah Palin capable of winning a presidential election, and a Mitt Romney candidacy is not “resonating.”
“I am seriously thinking about it. I won't make a decision until June,” Trump told CNN’s Piers Morgan. “But, I will make a decision, and it may surprise people, frankly. Yes, I think I could win, otherwise I wouldn't do it.
“I don't think there is a leader right now of the [GOP] candidates. Romney, I guess, would be somebody that people are thinking about, but it's not resonating,” he said. “Sarah Palin is somebody that I happen to like, I just don't think she can win the election, and a lot of people agree.
“She can win [primaries] perhaps, but she can't – she can't win the election. I can tell you [President Barack] Obama is dying to run against Sarah Palin.”
Trump said that if elected, he would reassess U.S. foreign policy, especially the relationship with China, whom he considers "the enemy."
"The first thing I would do is announce very strongly that we're going to tax Chinese products – 25 percent tax on all Chinese products,” he said. “They will come to the table immediately, and stop manipulating their currency, which they're doing.
“I see them as the enemy,” Trump continued. “They want to take over this country economically. They are not really out-competing. They are cheating. And we have people who don't know what to do, because we have the wrong people in office.”
