MOORESVILLE, N.C. —
Donald Trump returned to the Charlotte area Friday to visit his Mooresville golf course dubbed "Trump National."The real-estate mogul told Channel 9’s Blair Miller he is already thinking about his next Carolina project, which could be in the Queen City.Trump has always had his eye on developing a skyscraper in uptown.He said he is confident he will invest in Charlotte again and he took another look in uptown Friday.“Realistically, how soon do you think we should expect to see the Trump name in downtown Charlotte?” Miller asked.“It’s the kind of thing that might just all of a sudden happen. I’m looking at different things. I’m here today. I’m actually going to stop in Charlotte. I just want to see something,” Trump said.He wouldn’t say exactly what or where, but he also comes to Charlotte as he continues to make headlines in political circles and flirt with a run for president.“It’s just too early to say. We’ll see what happens, but it’s just too early. We have to get through the '14 election before we think in terms of '16,” Trump said.“He’s got the name recognition. He’s certainly got the money,” said political analyst Dr. Michael Bitzer.Bitzer said Trump’s political maneuvers are par for the course.“Whether this is a real effort or if he’s just trying to tease people along, that is up in the air,” Bitzer said.“Would you be surprised if he ran?” Miller asked Bitzer.“I personally would be surprised,” Bitzer said.Trump also weighed in on some of the political issues in North Carolina, specifically on the voter ID law that’s been so controversial. He said without a doubt, he supports it.Miller also talked with PGA legend Greg Norman who designed the course at "Trump National." Watch that interview here.
