Donald Trump Once Again Teases Presidential Run As Independent: [ send to a friend ]
In an appearance on 'Face the Nation' this weekend, Donald Trump once again brought up the possibility of entering the presidential race as an Independent.
"Well, I am thinking about it. We'll see what happens," Trump told CBS' Bob Schieffer.
"This is a very critical time for this country. The country is going to hell in a hand-basket. What's going on is unbelievable."
But the real estate mogul added he couldn't run just yet because of his reality show -- even if the country was going to "hell."
"I would have to run as an Independent," said Trump. "Sadly, I'm precluded from running now because of the show. If I didn't have the show, I probably would have maybe just kept going because I was doing well. As you know, I was leading in the polls."
"It's a very nasty race. I've never seen anything like this. It's Republican vs. Republican. There level of hatred, I guess you could say, is unbelievable."
