Donald Trump has his eyes on the prize — but he may not even really want it.

In a new wrinkle in Trump's quest to win the presidency — the billionaire real-estate tycoon revealed he's not even sure he'll serve if elected.

Trump's shock declaration came as The New York Times asked him if he was tapped by Americans to serve four years in the White House, might he then "forgo the office as the ultimate walk-off winner."

Trump, the newspaper said, flashed a mischievous smile, answering, "I'll let you know how I feel about it after it happens."

The Times says presumptive GOP presidential nominee may just be seeking more publicity with that answer.

"But the notion of the intensely competitive Mr. Trump's being more interested in winning the presidency than serving as president is not exactly a foreign concept to close observers of this presidential race," The Times' Jason Horowitz writes.

Stuart Stevens, a senior adviser to Mitt Romney in 2012, told Horowitz that Trump may be looking for an out, adding, "He has no sense of how to govern. He can't even put together a campaign."
