Donald Trump is letting it be known that he is “seriously considering” running for president in 2012 and that he will make a final decision on this new venture by June of this year. While Americans breathlessly wait for the Donald’s final decision, they can tune into C-Span to see him speak at the CPAC conference this afternoon.
