In an interview with Barbara Walters on The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2011 Wednesday night on ABC, real estate mogul and reality TV star Donald Trump said he is still not convinced President Obama was born in America.

“I have to be honest: do I know he was born here? Absolutely not,” said Trump, whose very public questioning of the president’s eligibility for office was one of the key talking points of his hinted-at bid for the Republican nomination before he announced that he would not run after all. “Was he born here? Possibly.

“He might have been born here, and that’s great,” theCelebrity Apprentice host reflected. “Now, with all of that being said, it’s right now unimportant to me.”

Trump also said that although he decided not to run for the Republican nomination, he’ll still consider running for president as an independent “if the Republicans pick the wrong person, and if the economy continues to be bad.”
