Donald Trump sat down with George Stephanopoulos for an exclusive interview: "you have to take on everybody. Everybody's ripping off the United States. I mean, the world is ripping us off. We're no longer respected, George. And we don't have our right people negotiating. We have great business minds in this country. You know where they are. They're working in Wall Street. And we don't-- we're using diplomats to negotiate with the toughest, smartest people from India, from China, from Mexico. If you look at what's happening with Mexico, how-- how much business they've drained out of this country."

Donald Trump, the real estate mogul and television reality star, says that for the first time in his life, he's "seriously considering a run" for President of the United States. Speaking with Good Day New York on the morning after the mid-term elections, Trump said he is "worried about the direction the country is going in" referring to the multi-trillion dollar national debt, among other problems.
