Despite Donald Trump's seventh place finish during this year's Conservative Political Action Conference straw poll, the business tycoon is adamant that he's the only Republican able to beat former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election.

Trump told Fox News on Monday that he has "a great team" in place for a potential 2016 campaign, and said, "If I run, I think I'll win."

"I think I'll beat Hillary," Trump said. "I understand Hillary, I know Hillary. I know the weaknesses; I know the strengths. And I think I would beat Hillary, and I think it would be more likely that I would win than somebody else."

"I think she's not going to have such a clear road as people are saying and I think the election's going to be a very, very tough one depending on who the Republicans pick," Trump added.

During CPAC, Trump announced he's 80 percent likely to run for the Republican nomination for president.
