Radio host Howard Stern said Monday that he "absolutely" believes he helped get President TrumpDonald John TrumpLev Parnas implicates Rick Perry, says Giuliani had him pressure Ukraine to announce Biden probe Saudi Arabia paid 0 million for cost of US troops in area Parnas claims ex-Trump attorney visited him in jail, asked him to sacrifice himself for president MORE elected.

Stern told "Good Morning America" that Trump’s frequent guest appearances on his show helped a broad swath of Americans relate "to him as a human being," which gives him mixed feelings because of his personal support for 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonFormer Vermont Governor: Sanders 'will play dirty' NYT: Justice investigating alleged Comey leak of years-old classified info New Hampshire state lawmaker switches support from Warren to Klobuchar MORE.

"The way I helped Donald was I let him come on and be a personality," Stern said. "I wanted to do that for Hillary. The big knock against Hillary, especially with some of the male audience, was 'eh, we don't like her.'"


Stern also said he believes the resurfacing of some quotes from his interviews with Trump, such as when he described managing to avoid sexually transmitted diseases as his "personal Vietnam," was "a little bit unfair."

"It was in a very joking scenario. He was not comparing his life to a Vietnam vet. It was 'ha-ha-ha and this and that,'" Stern said.

Stern, who was on ABC promoting his new memoir, "Howard Stern Comes Again," added that his relationship with Trump has changed since the New York real estate mogul announced his presidential campaign in 2015, particularly after Stern turned down an offer to speak at the 2016 Republican National Convention.

"It's a weird relationship I have," he said. "Donald was at my wedding. ... I remember having very warm feelings for Donald, and I do. I mean, he was always very nice to me."

Stern frequently weighs in on the presidency of his former frequent guest, joking with The Hollywood Reporter last week that "a more self-serving person would have gone all-in on Donald because I'd probably be the FCC commissioner or a Supreme Court justice by now."
