-- If Donald Trump ran the zoo, there would be a lot fewer losers, that's true.
During an appearance on ABC's “Jimmy Kimmel Live!," host Jimmy Kimmel surprised the GOP frontrunner with a Dr. Seuss-like book using two of his most favorite words -- “Winners Aren’t Losers They Are Winners Like Me!”
Kimmel says he wrote the book, but put Trump’s name on it to sell more copies. One of the lines the crowd loved was “Those losers are failures who get nothing done – just do what I do and you’ll be number one!”
Trump said he is “having a great time” on the campaign trail. Following his debate duel Tuesday night with Jeb Bush, Trump told Kimmel that Bush, who he regularly describes as "low-energy," was “a nice person."
Kimmel asked him if he really thought Bush would have killed baby Hitler, a comment the former Florida Governor made several months ago. “No, he’s too nice,” Trump said.
Kimmel then asked Trump what he would do -- “No comment,” he said.
On his controversial proposal of temporarily banning Muslims from entering the United States -- the real estate mogul said “we have people coming into this country that are looking to do us tremendous harm.”
Kimmel followed up asking if he has any reaction to others saying his words are fueling ISIS. "I don’t buy it," he said. "We need strength in this country. Our military is being dissipated!"
Trump was asked about his friend, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady after the two were pictured on the Wednesday morning edition of the New York Daily News. Trump called Brady "a champion a winner, fantastic…if I was in New England the place would have gone crazy.”
Kimmel also read out loud the letter from Trump’s doctor proclaiming him in excellent health. While reading, Trump flexed his muscles. Trump said he told his doctor he would be the healthiest President ever. “He probably took my words and put them down,” he said.
