Presumptive GOP nominee Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump says he will 'temporarily hold off' on declaring Mexican drug cartels as terror organization House Judiciary Committee formally receives impeachment report Artist behind gold toilet offered to Trump sells banana duct-taped to a wall for 0,000 MORE said he'll likely use a teleprompter at the Republican National Convention next week, but will probably make a final decision in the coming days.

"I don't know if it's ever been done without essentially a teleprompter," Trump said in a preview of an interview with the Golf Channel's David Feherty released Monday.

"I'd love to do it, actually, without a teleprompter, but you know, the one thing is, I have a very good memory, but you have many many, many, many, points, and I want to hit every point, whether it's the economy or whether it's anything of the many subjects that we've discussed; so it's most likely going to be teleprompter."

The presumptive GOP nominee said there are certain times to use a teleprompter.

"I give rallies and we'll have 25,000 and 35,000 people and if I ever used a teleprompter speech, the people would say, 'What's going on here?,'" Trump said.

"So we do very free-wheeling and we have a tremendous time and everybody loves it in the stadium, but in terms of television, it probably doesn't look as presidential," he continued.

"If I would ever use in a stadium where you have 35,000 people and I stand up with a teleprompter, I think the people would laugh and then leave," he said.

The full interview will air at 9 p.m. on July 18, on a new episode of "Feherty" on the Golf Channel.

The interview covered a variety of topics, ranging from Trump's distrust of the media to his recent trip to Scotland for the reopening of Turnberry.

Trump also discussed why he does not consider himself a politician and talks generally about U.S. presidents playing golf.
