Donald Trump says he would run for governor in New York if the state's Republican party could unify, but he had doubts whether Republican Party Chairman Ed Cox could do that.

"I would do it, if they can unify the party. There's a real question whether or not somebody like Ed Cox can do that," the real-estate and entertainment mogul told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" Thursday.

"We have somebody named Ed Cox who's got a tremendous losing record going, and they don't have a unified party," he added.




Issues Trump said he would address included the state's high taxes, which he called the highest "in the country." He said tolls were highest "probably anywhere in the world," and fees were "all over the place." Many residents were leaving New York for Florida, he said.

Trump has also expressed interest in running in the Republican primary for president in 2016. Before making that decision, he said he wanted to "see what happens" in the midterm races in 2014. He predicted Republicans would win big, due to Obamacare.

"I think because of Obamacare, it's going to be really disastrous for the Democrats. We'll see what happens. I think it's going to be a very big win for the Republicans," he said.
