Donald Trump has revealed that he is considering running for president in 2012.
The Apprentice star revealed his hopes of representing the Republican Party in a future election during an appearance on Fox News.
"For the first time in my life, I'm actually thinking about [running for president]," he explained.
"I am a Republican but have great respect for what the Tea Party has done because they have brought to light what's going on. I mean, we have trillion dollar deficits.... The country is going bankrupt, let's face it."
Trump later told MSNBC that he would make the decision "over a period of time" and that he has not yet made his mind up on whether to run.
