Real estate mogul Donald Trump says he is more serious than he's ever been about a possible run for president.
Trump appeared at a New York news conference Thursday with Georgian president Mikhail Saakashvili to announce a luxury development project there. Trump praised Saakashvili's stewardship of that country and said he wished there were comparable leadership in the United States.
Trump reiterated his plan to announce in June whether he will seek the Republican nomination to challenge President Barack Obama in 2012.
Trump said he has great relationships with business and political leaders around the world.
