"I'm not going to rule anything out, that I can tell you," Trump said when asked Monday morning on Fox and Friends if he might be late entrant to the presidential race after all.
He took some potshots at the current crop of Republicans who are running for president, saying, "at this point in time, they're not going to be beating Obama."

Trump declined to confirm a Newsmax report (based on a New York Post story) that he was offered $60 million by NBC to continue as host of The Apprentice, though he said network management personally appealed to him to stay out of the presidential race so his show could continue.
Trump was asked if he would walk away from the money if the GOP field didn't become more competitive.
"Who knows," Trump said, "stranger things have happened."
