Trump: Endorsement coming soon

On Fox & Friends this morning, Donald Trump promised an imminent endorsement in the 2012 race.

"Within a month probably sounds good -- maybe a little bit more than that, but I've got a good, good sight on everybody. I have a lot of respect for a lot of them. We have some good people."

Trump has met with most of the big '12 names -- Mitt Romney, Rick Perry, Herman Cain, and Michele Bachmann as he's deliberated on a decision.

A few, notable exceptions are Newt Gingrich and Jon Huntsman -- the latter of whom he's publicly mocked, essentially comparing him to BrickBreaker in September.

"Time is money and I don't waste mine."

Obviously, Huntsman -- as befits a former ambassador to China -- has ripped Trump's bellicose rhetoric on the country.

Trump was noticeably unmoved by the GOP field earlier this year, even promising that he'd get in the race as an indie next year if he didn't like the nominee.

But after months of wooing from the top competitors, he seems pleased with his GOP options and appears ready to get behind a Republican nominee.
