The Donald has a message for the president — get on a plane to Tokyo, stat!
Donald Trump, who says he's seriously considering a run for president in 2012, said it would be "brilliant" for President Obama to get on a plane to Japan and "not be on the golf course."
The developer made the comments in an interview with CNBC's Larry Kudlow, the first part of which aired Thursday evening.
"Wouldn't that be brilliant? Go over there and tell them, `We're here to help. We're here to do something,' " Trump said. "Not be on the golf course."
He added that an upcoming trip to Brazil that the president will be making isn't "the right choice now. You can't have the president of the United States working on his nine iron shots when Japan is potentially, I mean, one of the great problems ever. So I think maybe the concept — you're asking what should he do..the concept of him getting on that plane and flying over for a two-hour visit would be brilliant, in my opinion."
