Mark, 51 – who stars on the ITV game show alongside Shaun Wallace, Anne Hegerty, Paul Sinha and Jenny Ryan – insisted that he wouldn’t be scared to take Trump on in a battle.
Speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk, Mark said: “As Piers Morgan is fond of reminding everyone, he is a good friend to President Trump.
“He relates that Donald is both a very good golfer and a scrupulously honest one. Based on that, I suspect he would be a tough but fair opponent.
“As I am the American chaser, I will happily face him on The Chase USA,” he added.

I will happily face Donald Trump on The Chase USA!
The Beast’s latest comments come after he famously stormed off set in December when he lost a game and the quizzer – who previously bagged £32,000 on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, as well as starring on numerous other shows – said that any of the other Chasers would have acted in the same way.
He explained of the incident: “I am the best in the world at what I do [over 300 wins worldwide], it's a big boast but it spurs me to try and be the best I can.
“You need a bit of swagger and confidence when you are facing four players with a head start on your own. As for bashing the set, I am staggered at the response. For me this is my sport and any sportsperson would completely understand my behaviour.”

Mark added of whether or not he has witnessed any of the other Chasers acting in a similar manner: “We all care passionately. We have all put in a lot of work to get to our level of knowledge, and it is priceless to be thought of as clever by the public.
“So when you feel you have screwed up a game, it really hurts. All of us have had at some point a losing streak and one of the things you need to develop is how to cope with that mentally and dig yourself out of a slump. Easier said than done though sometimes.”
The Chase continues tonight at 4.15pm on ITV.
