"We're getting ripped off by the intelligent countries"

    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."

    Trump said he hasn't made a decision on whether to run for president yet, but would decide by June.

    He's not the only potential candidate testing the waters in Chicago. Last week Haley Barbour, the governor of Mississippi, spoke in Chicago about his displeasure with the country.
