Donald Trump considers taking on Palin in presidential bid

Donald Trump is getting more serious about his run for the presidency in 2012.

"I am thinking about things," he told George Stephanopolous in an interview on Good Morning America this morning. "I love what I'm doing, but it could be fun because I'd like to see some positive things happen for the country. ... We cannot let the rest of the wrold beat us up. We're like a whipping post right now."

Trump, who said last month he was considering running, launched a website - - on Friday to gauge interest in him as a candidate. He said on GMA he is a Republican and would run as a Republican.

What about Sarah Palin? "She's very interesting. Don't underestimate her," he said. So, he'd be running against her? "If I ran, I would have no choice. I'd take her on. I like her, but I'd take her on." Trump said he will make a decision by June.

Palin just may not run in "2012". She's seen the movie and probably figures it's not worth the effort for such a short period of time left in the world.

Donald Trump would destory palin. That doesn't say much but I watched an interview with trump on cnn and he is a genius in many ways. I don't think he should run as a republican though, he could win as an independant. Americans are tired of both parties.
