Donald Trump: 'I Am Seriously Considering Running' for President

Real estate tycoon Donald Trump may shift his eye from the boardroom to the Oval Office.

The "Apprentice" mogul confirmed to "Extra" that he's thinking about tossing his hat into the ring in the 2012 election. "I am seriously considering running," said the Donald.

"I hate what's happening to our country," Trump told "Extra." "Our country is being ridiculed all over the world."

If Sarah Palin decides to run, the mogul thinks she'd be a worthy opponent, saying, "I like Sarah Palin. I respect Sarah Palin."

Another celeb who may throw his hat into the ring is Alec Baldwin. The "30 Rock" star announced on CNN's "Parker Spitzer" Wednesday that he's thinking about running for office. "The answer is yes, it's something that I am very, very interested in," Baldwin said.
