The Donald: Trump Soho “doing really well”

The Trump Soho Hotel in downtown Manhattan “is doing really well,” Donald Trump told CNBC in the video above. But while Trump was certainly bullish on his Soho condo-hotel, critics haven’t been nearly as kind; the company has faced a lawsuit from a group of buyers, who say that it lied about its sales figures.
On the heels of last night’s premiere of “CNBC Titans,” which gives an inside look into Trump’s early financial struggles, Trump said that the success of his reality show “The Apprentice” greatly helped his brand expand. He also noted that his brand has had great success with Trump name licensing deals. On MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Trump said he is “mulling over” a run for president.  “I am certainly thinking about it for the first
time in my life,” he said, citing agreements with OPEC and China as
issues that are working against economic progress in the U.S.
