VIA| Appearing on NBC’s “The Tonight Show” Friday, Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump told host Jimmy Fallon that he would apologize in the “hopefully distant future” if he was ever wrong.
When Fallon asked Trump if he’s ever apologized in his life, Trump recalled his campaign announcement speech when he made controversial comments about illegal immigrants. Trump said people wanted him to apologize then for his comments, but said “ultimately it turned out that I was right.”
“Now people that reported on me are saying, ‘thank you very much.’ I mean, hard to believe, actually reporters, and I was right on it,” Trump said. “I will absolutely apologize sometime in the hopefully distant future if I’m ever wrong.”
“I fully think apologizing’s a great thing, but you have to be wrong,” Trump said.
After Fallon initially asked about Trump apologizing, the business mogul joked that “this was not supposed to be one of the questions.”
Before Trump’s interview with Fallon, the pair did a mirror sketch with the comedian imitating Trump as the presidential candidate pretended to be his own reflection in the mirror.
