Donald Trump sidestepped a question Monday whether he would run for president, when asked about his attendance at the Iowa state fair in Ames this past weekend.

"It's certainly too early to even be thinking about it. We have three years — a long time to go," Trump said Monday on "Fox & Friends."

"I've been watching this for a long time. And a lot of times, it's the person they don't even talk about. And all of a sudden, they emerge. But right now, I think that you have a field that certainly has form. I got a glimpse of it," Trump said about potential Republican nominees.

Trump said he made the keynote address Saturday at the Family Leadership Summit during the fair, at the invitation of Bob Vander Plaats, president and CEO of The Family Leader, a conservative organization.

"It's really too early to say what's going to happen and who's going to run," Trump said.

Trump has been on the list of Republicans with an eye on the presidential nomination. Others on the list are Sens. Rand Paul of Kentucky, Ted Cruz of Texas, Marco Rubio of Florida, former Pennsylvania. Sen. Rick Santorum, and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

Santorum and Cruz also attended the Iowa event.

Trump, a billionaire real estate developer, led the polls for a short time after announcing a run for the 2012 election, but eventually withdrew and endorsed Mitt Romney.

Trump was unequivocal about who he thought the Democratic candidate would be.

"Assuming good health and nothing bad happens, with respect to Hillary, which I don't think it will. And I think she's healthy, and I think she's going to be healthy. She's going to be the nominee. And she'll be tough to beat," Trump said about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
