Donald Trump isn’t afraid of Joe Biden — to the contrary, he believes Biden would be a fun opponent, the Republican candidate for president revealed to Howard Stern on Tuesday.

Trump called in to “The Howard Stern Show” on Tuesday to discuss his early success in the 2016 election, which lead to a discussion of who he would rather run against: Biden or Hillary Clinton.

“Are you afraid of Joe Biden?” Stern asked the real estate mogul in light of recent speculation that Biden might join the presidential race.

“I think Joe Biden would be fun to run against, frankly,” Trump responded. “I think Hillary has been very badly damaged.”

That opened the GOP candidate and the talk show host to a discussion of Clinton’s recent email scandal, which has raised questions about whether Clinton sent and received classified information via a private email server.

He compared Clinton to Gen. David Petraeus, the former four-star Army general and CIA director who pleaded guilty in January to one misdemeanor charge of mishandling classified information in his dealings with his biographer and lover.

“I don’t know, I’ve been saying Gen. Petraeus did much less than her. The documents were of far less importance, and they destroyed his life,” said Trump. “She wiped out servers after she got a subpoena from the United States congress — how much worse can you be than that? … Now, her only hope is the Democrats are running things right now, maybe they’re not going to prosecute her.”

In the interview, Trump also said that he hasn’t given much thought to who he will elect as his Vice President, as he’s been focusing on winning the Republican nomination.

“I’m going to do a great job, and we’re going to take care of the country,” Trump said.
