Barry Diller doesn't think Donald Trump has a shot at the presidency but, still, the founder and chairman of IAC Interactive vowed recently to move out of the country should the billionaire real estate mogul make it to the White House.

“All he is is a huckster,” Diller told Bloomberg Politics. “Somebody who learned long ago in real estate that if you can make a big name for yourself, it can get you an extra dollar . . .  He’s a self-promoting huckster who found a vein, a vein of meanness and nastiness.”

Trump has been the front-runner for the Republican nomination and led in the national polls for months, but Diller said at Bloomberg's Markets Most Influential Summit that he is not buying what Trump is selling.

"If Donald Trump doesn't fall, I'll either move out of the country or join the resistance," the media executive responsible for the creation of Fox Broadcasting Company and USA Broadcasting said.

According to CNN, the latest Quinnipiac poll shows Trump leading all Republican candidates in the key swing states of Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Florida.

Diller, himself a member of the Television Hall of Fame, thinks Trump is polling so well because he has benefited from his "reality television" past.

"I just think it's a phenomenon of reality television as politics," Diller said, according to Bloomberg. "I think that that is how it started, reality television as you all know is based on conflict.

"Nobody wants to watch reality television of two housewives sitting in a room taking about where they're going to go get their hair done," he continued. "It's all about conflict. Donald Trump, all he is is about conflict, and all that he is is negative conflict. The idea that anybody gets away with saying John McCain is not a hero because I like people who don't get caught."

In true Trump style, he gave his two cents on Diller's comments in the form of a tweet Tuesday:
