The Donald thinks Sarah Palin is one classy lady.

“I like Sarah Palin. I respect Sarah Palin,” Trump says on a segment of “Extra” airing Wednesday night.

The New York City real estate mogul made the comments while discussing how he’s taking a hard look at running for president in 2012. “I am seriously considering running,” he said.

Trump added: “I hate what’s happening to our country. Our country is being ridiculed all over the world.”

This is not the first time the businessman and reality TV star has hinted at a run for the White House. In 2000, he flirted running on the Reform Party ticket.
