NBC “Apprentice” host Donald Trump insists he’s seriously mulling a run for the White House in 2016, claiming that on a scale of 1-to-10, with 1 being a “no” and 10 a “yes,” he’s sitting near the middle — but more toward the 10.

“[I’m] much more than five,” he said during a Fox News interview with Sean Hannity. “NBC very much wants a new season. I’m going to have to take my time” about making a decision.

He also said that he was “looking at something serious” and that “all options are on the table,” Newsmax reported.

This isn’t the first time Mr. Trump expressed interest in the high office. His previous publicly touted desires to run for the presidency never came to fruition.
