Appearing on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon on Friday Night, Republican presidential contender Donald Trump engaged in a hard-hitting interview with himself. Well, sort of.

With Fallon doing a perfect Trump impression, the pair sat opposite one another on either side of a fake mirror, performing a sketch in which the billionaire tried to motivate himself for the interview.

"The only one qualified to interview me is me," Fallon/Trump said.

When asked how he would create jobs in the U.S., Trump said he was "just going to do it."

"By doing it. It just happens. Just by doing it," he explained.

"Geeeenius," Fallon/Trump said.

When asked how he would convince Mexico to pay to build a wall on the U.S. border, Trump turned the question back around on his doppelgänger.

"I'll challenge them to the biggest game of Jenga ever. I'll make them set up the board, and then when they're finished I'll say, 'I don't want to play anymore,'" Fallon/Trump said.

We also "learned" that Trump thinks former Celebrity Apprentice star Gary Busey might be a good Supreme Court nominee, and that, instead of Sarah Palin, Trump is thinking of asking Kanye West to join him as a running mate.

The real interview also proved interesting, with Fallon stumped as to how Trump has catapulted to the top of the GOP polls.

"I think they want our country to be respected again," Trump said of the support he has found among voters. "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."

Fallon praised Trump for his "refreshing" and "off-the-cuff" style, which he said can often cause the real-estate developer some trouble.

"I think you dig yourself a hole sometimes, a deep hole, and then instead of getting out of the hole, you just dig deeper. And if you keep digging, eventually you might come out in China and be the president of China," Fallon quipped.

Fallon also asked Trump if he'd ever apologized for anything during his lifetime.

"I fully think apologizing is a great thing," Trump said. "But you have to be wrong."

"I will absolutely apologize sometime in the hopefully distant future if I'm ever wrong."
