Donald Trump had to face off against his most formidable opponent — and biggest supporter — on Friday, Sept. 11: himself. The GOP presidential hopeful stopped by The Tonight Show to chat politics with late-night host Jimmy Fallon, and the twosome kicked off the monumental segment with some man-to-man banter.
In the opening sketch, Trump, 69, and Fallon, 40, sat down on either side of a dressing room “mirror” and Fallon-as-Trump interviewed the real estate mogul.
Among the topics that the pair covered in the lighthearted skit were job creation, possible vice presidential candidates (Kanye!), and Trump’s previous comments about building a wall between the United States and Mexico.
When Fallon broached the touchy topic, Trump fired back a quick retort to his “reflection.”
“Since I’m you, why don’t you tell me?” the Celebrity Apprentice host asked Fallon.
“How am I going to get Mexico to build the wall?” Fallon-as-Trump scoffed. “Easy: I’ll challenge them to the biggest game of Jenga ever. I’ll make them set up the board. And then when they finish, I’ll say I don’t want to play anymore.”
The witty repartee didn’t stop there. When the pair took to the couch-and-desk for the interview segment later on in the show, Trump responded to Fallon’s questions just as swiftly.
When asked if Trump has ever apologized for anything he’s said — the media mogul has offended the black community, the Asian community, women, and the Hispanic community, among others, in recent weeks — Trump was careful.
“I think apologizing’s a great thing, but you have to be wrong,” he said. “I will absolutely apologize, sometime in the hopefully distant future, if I’m ever wrong.”
Earlier this week, fellow GOP presidential hopeful Carly Fiorina snubbed Trump after he took a jab at her physical appearance in a Rolling Stone interview.
“I think those comments speak for themselves,” Florin, 61, told Fox News host Megyn Kelly on Wednesday, Sept. 9. “Honestly, Megan, I’m not going to spend a single cycle wondering what Donald Trump means. But maybe, just maybe, I’m getting under his skin a little bit, because I am climbing in the polls.”
