Donald Trump, the celebrity US property tycoon, has suggested he might run for president in 2012.

Speaking to ABC News, he said a tilt at the presidency "could be fun because I'd like to see some positive things happen for the country."

He added that he would happily take on former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, who may also become a contender.

He said: "I would take her on. I like her, but I'd take her on."

Donald Trump, who launched the American version of TV show The Apprentice, said he believed that "everybody's ripping America off" and he would be pleased to spend more than $200 million of his own money on his campaign.

Trump told George Stephanopoulos he believed the US was being used as a "whipping post" and led by fools.

He said overseas countries were no longer showing the US any respect.

He singled out China, which he said had been "getting away with murder" by manipulating its currency.

He said: "I have many people from China that I do business with. They laugh at us. They feel we're fools. And they can't believe what they're getting away with."

Trump for President?

You gotta be kidding me, but given America’s heavy debt who other than Mr. Chapter 11 himself can lead our nation through the arduous process of shedding our debt through the courts? Get a haircut jerk!

Behold the laughing stock of the world

When a guy and gal like Trump and Palin are vying to run for the most powerful nation on earth, they are furthering the laughing stock image of America! Since Bush, a puppet for the RightWing, it’s anything goes in America. No wonder that country is in such deep shit.
