Donald Trump: ‘I’m Gonna Win the Hispanic Vote’

Did Donald Trump just call for Republican unity on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’?.

On Wednesday’s Kimmel Live, Jimmy Kimmel asked Donald Trump if any of his advisers had tried to talk him out of his proposal to ban all Muslims from entering the United States.This photo provided by ABC shows guest Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump, left, with host Jimmy Kimmel, on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Wednesday, Dec. 16, 2015, in Los Angeles.

Before the Republican front-runner for president took the stage on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Wednesday night, the host was pulling no punches, characterizing billionaire Donald Trump as a bully and saying that at one point he had to decide “whether to buy the United States or just become our president.” After playing a clip of Trump hounding Jeb Bush during Tuesday’s Republican debate, Kimmel added, “And then he took his lunch money and pulled his underwear up to his neck.” But Trump was uncharacteristically subdued throughout the show, laughing and smiling as Kimmel read him a made-up Trump-inspired children’s book titled “Winners Aren’t Losers” and even striking a conciliatory tone toward his Republican opponents. “I would like to see the Republican Party come together,” Trump told Kimmel. “I’ve been a little bit divisive in the sense that I’ve been hitting people pretty hard.” “Ultimately, I would like to come together and get this thing done,” Trump said, though he added that he’d prefer that lower-tier candidates like former New York Gov. Trump didn’t really answer, just said that the key word is “temporarily” and that many — not all — of his many Muslim friends “called me and they said ‘You know, Donald, you’re right, we have a problem.'” Kimmel asked: “But isn’t it un-American and wrong to discriminate against people based on their religion?” His audience like that question, but Trump just said that “we have people coming into this country that are looking to do us tremendous harm.” Trump noted the attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, and repeated that many Muslims have called him to voice their support for his proposed ban. “Those may have been crank calls,” Kimmel joked, before asking Trump about the argument that indiscriminately banning Muslims just increases ISIS recruitment. “I don’t buy it,” Trump said. “We need strength in this country — we don’t have strength.” The last part is Trump trumpeting his opposition to the 1993 invasion of Iraq, and you can watch that and his defense of his controversial proposal below. Lindsey Graham get off the “children’s stage” and drop out of the race. “He’s having a hard time because … everyone thought he was the odds-on favorite,” Trump said of the former Florida governor, who took a more aggressive stance toward him Tuesday. “I said he’s a low-energy individual.

Over the past few months, Donald Trump has gotten away without a scratch on Saturday Night Live, lightly parodied himself with Jimmy Fallon, and sat down for a surprisingly soft interview with Stephen Colbert. In an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel’s late-night show Wednesday, the GOP presidential candidate looked relaxed as Kimmel queried him about campaign issues.

When Trump brought up his threat to pull out of CNN’s debate unless they paid him, Kimmel joked, “That’s a shame, because you could use more money.” The host also laughed out loud when Trump admitted he’s been “a little bit divisive” during this election cycle. At the same time, Kimmel gave Trump ample room to criticize and minimize his favorite target, Jeb Bush, giving him the backhanded compliment that he’s “too nice” to kill baby Hitler. Kimmel saved some of his harder-hitting questions for his second segment with the candidate, bringing up the various xenophobic comments he’s made about Muslims and Mexicans—a group that includes his sidekick Guillermo.

When Trump once again insisted that he will win the Hispanic vote, Kimmel countered by suggesting we let the Mexicans into the country and kick some Americans out in exchange. We told him there were cameras here, right?” Kimmel said to the audience. “Don’t worry,” he added, “tonight we’re gonna give everyone in the audience a basketball dipped in cologne so you can fully experience what it would have been like had Donald Trump been here.” When Hillary Clinton appeared on the show last month, Kimmel asked the former first lady whether she would win in a hypothetical race against her husband and whether Clinton would be referred to as the “First Dude.” A study released this week by the Center for Media and Public Affairs at George Mason University shows that Trump was the butt of 308 jokes by late-night comedians over a two-month period ending in October, more than the rest of the GOP field combined.

Ted Cruz’s temperament after previously calling him a something of a “maniac.” Bush, well behind front-runner Trump in national polls, said during the debate that the billionaire couldn’t insult his way to the presidency and called him a “chaos candidate.” And, for anyone who’s worried, Kimmel’s zingers on Wednesday will be added to the total: “The joke totals will be updated throughout the 2016 Presidential Campaign,” the university assures. In their final segment the host took particular delight in Trump’s ridiculous medical report that came out earlier this week and appeared to be written by the candidate himself, with statements from his personal doctor like, “Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.” It turns out, Trump may actually be responsible for some of that rhetoric. “In all fairness, I said, ‘Doc, I want to tell you, I’ll be the healthiest president ever.’” The candidate suggested his doctor took those words and obligingly put them in his report.
