Trump Reveals His Greatest Weakness

He's 'too nice too long' and 'too bad for too long'

Jimmy Fallon put Donald Trump on the hot seat for a "mock job interview" for president on the Tonight Show on Monday, and the result was a slightly softer side of Trump. After admitting that he did cry "when I was 1," per the New York Daily News, the presidential candidate engaged in what the Washington Post calls "a bit of self-criticism." Asked about his weaknesses, Trump said he never forgets. "I'm too nice too long, and when … somebody takes advantage of a situation, I become too bad for too long. So I think I maybe have to have a little bit of a shorter memory. It wouldn't be so bad." Of course, Trump also took the opportunity to boast about his good looks. "I am an extraordinarily handsome person," he said with a smile. "I have a beautiful head of hair."

In perhaps another surprise, Trump told Fallon that one of his greatest strengths is in unity. "A lot of people would say it's the exact opposite," Trump admitted. But "I'll get along with Democrats, with Republicans, with liberals, with conservatives, and that's what we need in this country. We have to bring it together, because it's very divided." That's an idea likely to make President Obama scoff. He tells Today that voters don't want "scapegoating" intended to divide the country. "I'm pretty confident that the overwhelming majority of Americans are looking for the kind of politics that does feed our hopes and not our fears," he said. If we're going to see Trump one day make a State of the Union address, it'll probably be in an SNL skit, he quipped. (White supremacists want you to vote Trump.)
