    Real estate magnate Donald Trump may be eyeing a new house.

    A day after the 64-year-old billionaire denied he sponsored a poll of New Hampshire GOPers testing his name as a potential presidential candidate, The Donald made the rounds on the morning shows to say that he wouldn't mind getting the job. 

    "For the first time in my life, I am absolutely thinking about it," Trump said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe." "I don't know that I'll do it, it's probable that I won't do it, but I can tell you, I'm thinking about it. Somebody has to do something. We are losing this country."  

    Citing what he perceives to be a climate in the United States that "has never been worse," the "Apprentice" boss lambasted China for "ripping this country like no one has ever ripped it before" during an interview on Fox & Friends Tuesday morning. 

    On MSNBC, Trump continued his tirade against China and slammed OPEC, blaming foreign interests and "outside forces" for "destroying this country." As for how he plans to fix it, the New York businessman said coyly, "We have to appoint the right people."
