"Who’s your dream person to run against in 2020?" Fox's Laura Ingraham asked Trump in a pre-recorded interview set to air during her Fox News show. 

"So far I like them all," Trump replied. 


Ingraham asked how he would feel if Clinton ran again. 

"I like her too, I’d be very happy with Hillary," Trump said. "I don’t see anybody that I wouldn’t enjoy running against."

Though Clinton fanned speculation about 2020 when she said at a Friday event that she would like "to be president," Clinton allies told The Hill on Monday that she is not planning to run again

“She’s more likely to win Powerball,” Philippe Reines, Clinton’s longtime adviser, told The Hill on Monday. 

Other Clinton confidants said there is no one encouraging her to enter the field, which is expected to be crowded, and there have been no efforts to ramp up staff or build a campaign infrastructure.

Biden has been floated as another possible contender, and surveys show him leading the pack of potential Democratic nominees, but he has downplayed the likelihood that he will launch a bid.

Biden launched presidential campaigns in 1988 and 2008, but quickly dropped out of the race each time.
