Real estate mogul Donald Trump is in the business of keeping his followers guessing about whether he plans to run for President or not.

He ginned up more speculation Monday in his weekly “Fox and Friends” appearance.

After weighing in on issues of the day including MIT professor Jonathan Gruber’s comments on Obamacare, Trump railed against the Obama administration’s “gross incompetence” and repeated his refrain that America would be “respected” again if he were President.

“I may not be able to do your highest rated segment anymore on Monday morning because if I run, they won’t allow me to do it, right?” he wondered.

“Well, that is correct. So are you saying at this point, it looks like you’re gonna be running?” host Steve Doocy asked.

“Well, I’m gonna look at it,” Trump demurred.

Fox News recently ended its relationship with contributor Dr. Ben Carson, after the former neurologist reportedly prepared a promotional video hinting at a 2016 presidential run.

The network is also reportedly “evaluating” former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee’s status as a host amid speculation that he’s gearing up for a second shot at the White House.
