Donald Trump on the Tonight Show: ‘I will apologize … if I’m ever wrong’.

The sketch featured Fallon impersonating Trump into a mirror where, in lieu of a reflection, the actual Republican frontrunner appeared.

No way he deserves to interview me,” Fallon quips as Trump. “The only one qualified to interview me, is me.” It was clear Trump was enjoying himself — so to speak — during the sketch. In the sketch, the two discussed Trump’s jobs plan, where he would create jobs just “by doing it” as well as Trump’s opinion that actor Gary Busey was not a potential vice-president and instead “more supreme court material” (Trump suggested Kanye West instead as a potential running mate).

At several points he turns to the audience, beaming, especially when Fallon says, “I’m like a Greek god that just took a bath in a pumpkin-spiced latte.” Trump: Look, I love Gary. Asked by Fallon what he thought might be further revealed in the emails Clinton controversially routed through a private server while running the State Department, Trump predicted, “a lot of bad stuff. Trump, his guest Friday night. “When did this happen?” In the businessman’s first late night show appearance since declaring his presidential bid in June, Mr. In the interview, Trump spoke about his candidacy, which he said was drawing support because “people are tired in this country of being ripped off, seeing poor things happen”. Trump mainly smiled his way through an interview that tested the notoriously touchy billionaire’s ability to spar – and to take what he’d prefer to dish out — ahead of next week’s primetime GOP debate.

The exchange was largely genial, but there were a few subtle flashpoints: Fallon asked immigration hardliner Trump how he’d deliver on his promise to build a wall on the U.S./Mexico border without using immigrant labor. “Well, we’re going to build it,” Trump said as the audience tittered. “We may build it with immigrant labor. But it’s going to be a great wall.” In a sketch that supplemented the sitdown interview, he and Fallon wore matching dark suits – and sculpted coifs – for a take on the old ‘talking to myself in the dressing room mirror’ routine. At Fallon’s request, Trump also tried to offer the other major female candidate in the 2016 race, former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, some pleasantries after having ridiculed her looks in a Rolling Stone interview.

If he hadn’t been, it would have been unlikely that he’d express his regrets: “I fully think apologizing is a great thing — but you have to be wrong,” Trump said when Fallon asked if he’d ever done so. He said competitor Carly Fiorina was “a nice woman,” but said the former Hewlett-Packard chief executive had experienced rough patches in her business career.
