Jimmy Fallon asks Donald Trump more interview questions

Posted on


Back in January, Jimmy Fallon interviewed Donald Trump on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and asked Trump a series of mock job interview questions to see if he was qualified to become president. On Thursday, Trump returned to The Tonight Show as the GOP nominee, making the prospect of a Trump presidency even more possible than it was eight months earlier. Hence, more questions.

“Why would you excel at this job?” Fallon asked.

“Because I love people and I want to do right for people,” Trump said.

“How would your co-workers and peers describe you?” Fallon wondered.

“As somebody who never gives up. We never give up. We can never give up. Never,” Trump replied.

Fallon also asked Trump about his hobbies (“I don’t have any time”), and also why he was looking to leave his current job. “Because I’m sort of looking to make a lot less money. A lot,” Trump said.

The interview between Trump and Fallon stayed relatively light-hearted, with Trump allowing the host to mess up his hair and even sitting through Fallon’s impression of Trump. (“That’s very good,” Trump said of the impersonation.)
