The clock is ticking on the 2016 election, and it’s only a matter of hours before America will decide between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump as the next president of the United States. And on Monday night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Clinton got an eleventh hour endorsement from an unlikely source: her opponent himself, Donald Trump.

In a mock endorsement video, Kimmel spliced old interview clips together of Trump complimenting Hillary and Bill Clinton, making it seem as though he was supporting her for president.

“I know her very well, and her husband, very well, and I like them both,” Trump says in an old interview. “I think she really works hard, and I think she does a good job.”

The narration goes on to say that Trump knows Clinton will bring peace and prosperity back to the country, and shows a 2008 clip of Trump praising Bill Clinton’s presidency.

“We had no war, the economy was doing great, everybody was happy,” he says.

The video also pokes fun at Trump’s infamous Access Hollywood leaked tape, airing footage of the incident as a voice says, “Donald Trump knows the last thing America needs is a sexual predator in the White House.”

The video wraps up with an image Trump uses in his own endorsement videos as his own voice says, “I’m Donald Trump, and I approve this message.”
