EDISON - Over the years, Donald Trump has worn a lot of hats: real estate mogul, TV star, top-selling author. But could his next hat be that of commander-in-chief?

Maybe so, according to Trump. He announced at a gathering of Republicans this week that he will decide by June whether to run for president.

Trump said the U.S. has become "the laughingstock of the world," and the country needs an accomplished president.
