You can hold your breath: New York will know soon whether Donald Trump will take on Gov. Andrew Cuomo next year.
“I’ll make a decision at some time pretty soon,” Trump said Monday on Fox News’s “Fox & Friends.”
The business mogul has been vague about entering the race and had said recently that he wasn’t interested in a run. But after a group of state Republicans met with Trump earlier this month to encourage him to challenge Cuomo, the developer indicated he would give it some thought.
Trump said on Fox that a bid for governor “was not what I had in mind.”
“Let’s see what happens. I had something else in mind, and this was not actually something that I wanted to do,” Trump said.
When asked whether “something else” meant 2016 presidential ambitions, Trump declined to elaborate.
