Donald Trump is “mulling over” whether to run for president, he told MSNBC’s Morning Joe. “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. Also, in a video with CNBC above,
Trump said that the Trump Soho Hotel in downtown Manhattan “is doing really well.” 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.
