The wood-paneled boardrooms at Trump Tower aren’t enough for Donald Trump, who now says he’s “more serious” than ever about a shot at the Oval Office.

The real estate mogul has hired staffers in key primary states, the Washington Post reported, and is even delaying making a commitment to his hit “Celebrity Apprentice” show to make room for his presidential run.

“Everybody feels I’m doing this just to have fun or because it’s good for the brand,” Trump told the newspaper. “Well, it’s not fun. I’m not doing this for enjoyment. I’m doing this because the country is in serious trouble.”

This isn’t the first time Trump has toyed with the idea of running for the country’s highest office. In 2012, he withdrew his bid for the Republican presidential nomination. [WashPo] – Hiten Samtani
