(Newser) – Donald Trump clarified, sort of, a long-standing question about his personality during a Tonight Show appearance last night. Host Jimmy Fallon asked Trump if he had ever apologized for anything. "I fully think apologizing is a great thing," Trump replied before winning applause by adding: "But you have to be WRONG... I will absolutely apologize sometime in the hopefully distant future if I'm ever wrong." In what passed as one of the segment's more serious moments, Fallon asked what Trump was doing on the campaign trail that his Republicans rivals aren't to win support from voters. "I think they want our country to be respected again," Trump said. "I think they feel that if I'm president, I will do some great things for our country, and we're gonna be respected again."

Part of Trump's interview session with Fallon had Fallon impersonating Trump, complete with orange wig, as they faced one another on opposite sides of a picture frame, as if one of them were the other's mirror image. In this setting, Trump could be interviewed by the only person he deems worthy of the task—himself. Trump's appearance on the NBC show was taped only hours after he tweeted that he had purchased NBC's half of the Miss Universe Organization and settled all related lawsuits, giving him full ownership and completing a divorce begun in June when NBC announced it was ending its business relationship with him.
