It’s Donald Trump … and Donald Trump?

During a skit on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the late night host, as Trump, announced that he’d chosen his running mate: his own Mini-Me called Little Donald.

“A lot of people have been speculating about who I’m going to pick as my running mate,” Fallon says as Trump. “Chris Christie, LeBron James, Chewbacca Mom? All good choices, but no. The only person good enough to be my vice president is me.”

Fallon enlisted the help of Jack Aiello, the teen who went viral for his eighth grade graduation speech where he nailed impressions of the presidential candidates, to play his potential VP.

In addition to Aiello’s Trump impression, the 14-year-old also spoofed Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, pretending to prank call the Democratic candidates as each other.

“Hello, Secretary Clinton, this is Senator Bernie Sanders,” Aiello says into a phone. “Is your refrigerator running? Well, so am I, and I’m never, ever dropping out!”

When asked where he learned to do such incredible impressions, Little Donald replied, “Trump University, which is terrific, by the way.”

The video of Aiello’s eighth grade graduation speech has been viewed over 2.2 million times on YouTube, and even caught the attention of Ted Cruz.

“Politics has been something he’s been interested in for several years,” Aiello’s father, John, told ABC News. “He’s always been good with impressions, so while watching along with his mom and I, he picked up phrases and mannerisms of the candidates.”

“We brainstormed some quirky memories from school to work into the speech,” said Jack’s mom, Carla. “His classmates were encouraging of one another and when he delivered the speech, he got quite the reaction.”
