Kim Kardashian won’t be the U.S. First Lady in 2020 if Donald Trump has anything to do with it.

Kardashian’s husband, Kanye West, announced his intention to run for president in 2020 last Sunday at the VMAs during an acceptance speech for the Video Vanguard award.

Now Donald Trump, who’s running in the 2016 election, has taken the opportunity to speak to the media about facing West in 2020.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, the real estate mogul-turned-GOP frontrunner praised his potential competitor: “He’s said very nice things about me in the past… extremely positive things,” Trump said.

He added: “I was actually watching, I saw him [announce he was running for president in 2020 on the VMAs], and I said, ‘That’s very interesting. I wonder who gave him that idea?'”

Trump continued: “He’s actually a different kind of person than people think. He’s a nice guy. I hope to run against him someday.”
