Donald Trump is more than fine with being banned from Late Night!
On Tuesday night, Seth Meyers announced he would ban the GOP presidential nominee from his NBC talk show after Trump revoked the press credentials for The Washington Post on his campaign.
But on Wednesday, the boisterous billionaire responded the only way he knows how — with arrogance and incorrect facts!

In a statement acquired by Variety, the presidential hopeful said:
"He has begged me to do the show for the last two years. I have told him emphatically ‘no.' I only like doing shows with good ratings, which as everybody knows, I only make better (by a lot)."
We all saw this coming from a mile away — and so did Seth, who followed up the initial announcement with a joke that ended up predicting Trump's shady response:
"To be fair, he wasn't coming on anyway. He had no interest in being here."
As for Trump's implication that Late Night doesn't have "good ratings," the late night talk show actually wins the 12:35 a.m. time slot in this year to date — beating out The Late Late Show with James Corden and ABC's Nightline.
Either way, Trump knows he'll remain the topic of conversation on the late night circuit after his next ridiculous controversy!
