“I’m too nice too long, and when somebody takes advantage of a situation, I become too bad for too long,” Trump responded. “So I think I maybe have to have a little bit of a shorter memory. It wouldn’t be so bad.”
Trump, 69, illustrated his tendency to hold grudges earlier that day when he responded to Fox News host Megyn Kelly‘s claim that the GOP front-runner had tried – and failed – to “woo” her with compliments on her work.
“@megynkelly recently said that she can’t be wooed by Trump,” he tweeted Monday afternoon. “She is so average in every way, who the hell wants to woo her!”
Kelly told Vanity Fair in the magazine’s December cover story that, despite The Donald’s smooth talking, she “can’t be wooed.”
“He would send me press clippings about me that he would just sign ‘Donald Trump.’ And he called me from time to time to compliment a segment,” Kelly said. “I didn’t know why he was doing that. And then when he announced that he was running for president, it became more clear.”
“But I can’t be wooed. I was never going to love him, and I was never going to hate him.”
Fallon, 40, also asked the billionaire businessman for his thoughts on the conspiracy theory that he was secretly hired by the Democratic Party to ensure that Hillary Clinton would win.
“I’ll set the record straight right now,” Trump said. “The newest poll just came out today where I’m beating [Hillary] easily and substantially.”
“I’m winning against Hillary one on one – and I haven’t even started on her yet.”
