The NCAA Tournament kicks into high gear on Thursday, and while Donald Trump has elected to skip doing a bracket for ESPN, cartoon Donald Trump got his selections in right before the buzzer.

In a video posted by The Late Show, cartoon Donald Trump made his return to declare March as “Madness Awareness Month” and make his picks for the men’s basketball tournament. No one could accuse the animated president of going with only favorites, considering he has No. 1 seed Gonzaga out in the first round. It’s a monumental upset, for which he has some familiar and controversial reasoning.

“Don’t like their chances,” he said. “In fact, the country of Gonzaga is next in line for the travel ban. Those Gonzagans are bad hombres.”

For all eight years of his presidency, President Obama welcomed ESPN to the White House, where on camera he would fill out a bracket for both the men’s and women’s tournaments (here’s his 2017 bracket). Last month, ESPN announced Trump had rejected the company’s offer to keep the tradition going.

Watch the clip above to find out Trump’s surprise winner.
