Real-estate mogul Donald Trump said Monday to wait and see what happens on a possible run for governor of New York.

"I'll make a decision at some time pretty soon ... Let's see what happens," Trump told "Fox & Friends."

Trump is considering a challenge to Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo in 2014, after Republican leaders in the state urged him to run last week. He said he had "something else in mind" aside from running for governor, but declined to say if a run for president in 2016 was what that "something else" was.

"New York state has a lot of problems. We have the highest taxes in the nation, which people are not exactly thrilled about. And there is no reason to have that. And there are a lot of other problems," he said.

As for Obamacare, Trump questioned why President Barack Obama was not more involved leading up to its implementation. He maintained the healthcare law is a "total disaster" that was "built on a lie."

"[Obama] said that he had nothing to do with it. How can you have nothing to do with it when your whole legacy is riding on Obamacare?" Trump asked.

With all the issues facing the White House over the past year, Trump said the United States was "not the same country that we were, in terms of respect, in terms of so many other things."

"If you look at what's going on, so many bad things happened," he said. "This wasn't really a wasted year. This was really a negative year."
