Donald Trump doesn't like the direction of the United States.

The real estate icon and reality TV mogul, in town to talk politics amid rumors of his presidential candidacy, told NBC Chicago that America isn't respected around the globe, is getting ripped off by OPEC countries, and has been hoodwinked by China.

"That would stop if something were to happen where I ran and won," said Trump, who's considering a Republican bid for president in 2012. "That would stop instantaneously."
