Donald Trump appeared on his weekly Fox News segment Monday morning and claimed that the White House is dreading the possibility of running against him.

"I'm leading a lot of polls and doing very well," Trump told the Fox News hosts. "I can tell you I'm their worst nightmare. I am not the person that they want to run against."

Over the weekend, White House advisor David Plouffe dismissed a possible Trump presidential bid.

"I saw Donald Trump kind of rising in the polls. Given his behavior, and the spectacle of the last couple of weeks, I hope he keeps on rising," Plouffe told ABC's Christiane Amanpour. "There's zero chance that Donald Trump would ever be hired by the American people to do this job."
