Donald Trump may want you to hire him. The real estate magnate and "The Apprentice" host made a last-minute appearance at an annual gathering of conservatives and said he would decide by June whether to run for president.

He says he may run because the United States has becoming what he calls the whipping post for the rest of the world. He says the country is becoming - quote - "the laughingstock of the world" and he's worried about its future.

Trump says the country needs an accomplished president. And he all but offered himself up as the answer.
