Donald Trump Says Talk Of Run For US Presidency Is 'No Stunt'

Donald Trump says he isn't using talk about a run for the US presidency as a way to get free publicity.

Trump said on Tuesday that is in fact the 'biggest negative' because people don't think he's serious about running.

"I'm looking at it very seriously," he said. "I will make a decision by June - and it may surprise you."

"I am a good solid Republican. I am very conservative in terms of the military. I am very conservative on lots of issues but I am certainly very, very conservative in terms of the military."

"This country is being pushed around and pushed around, very sadly, by other countries. And I don't like it and people don't like it and they see that I do something about it."

"I don't like being rushed around as a country. I don't like Russia telling us how our military should operate, how many missiles we should be making. I don't like China taking all our jobs and making all our products and we talk about our high unemployment when everything is being made in China."

Trump also traded barbs with Senator Lamar Alexander after the lawmaker said real estate mogul had "no chance of winning."

"There's always someone like Donald Trump who runs who has absolutely no chance of winning," said Alexander. "I mean, he's famous for being famous. He may be good in business but he's not going to be president."

"Gee, I hope it doesn't ruin my chance to be his vice presidential pick!," Alexander joked.

"He's not a very effective senator," responded Trump. "The people of Tennessee are very smart. And they don't like being ripped off by everybody that touches this country. And I have a feeling that maybe he won't be there so long."
