New York (CNN) - As businessman Donald Trump continues to mull over a possible run for the presidency in 2012, one thing he made clear Thursday is that he is unhappy with the current leadership in the country.
"You see what can be done with proper leadership. We in this country, we don't have unfortunately that leadership," said Trump when specifically asked about President Obama and what he would do differently. Trump was speaking at a press conference in New York City.
"Were being very, very badly decimated by other countries taking advantage of us and we're like a whipping post and we could be great and we could be great again, but right now this country is doing very, very poorly."
Trump cited China, oil prices, OPEC, the U.S. dollar and food prices as some of the problems the U.S. is currently facing.
Trump was joined by President of Georgia, Mikheil Saakashvili, in a joint press conference to announce an agreement to build two new luxury properties in Georgia – a tower hotel in the capital of Tbilisi and a residential tower in the Black Sea Resort of Batumi.
"In terms of foreign relations I think this is really a great start," Trump said.
Trump contends that these types of international business deals should count towards his foreign policy credentials if he were a presidential candidate.
"I understand how the world works I deal with the world."
Official word on whether "the Donald" will run for office will be announced by June.
Trump said he's been asked for years to run but today feels "more serious than ever" about the idea.
