"I think they are worse than CNN", he said.

The late night host also took a swipe at first lady Melania TrumpMelania TrumpTrump on rumors about first lady's surgery: "I would let you know if she got a facelift" George Lopez to sell "Keep the kids, deport the racist" jackets for charity The Hill's 12:30 Report - Trump hits back at restaurant that refused to serve Sanders MORE's "Be Best" anti-bullying campaign.

Trump slammed Fallon on Sunday for discussing backlash he received after he tussled Trump's hair in an interview during his presidential campaign. "[And] I've never said 'monster ratings.' I don't know what he's talking about".

"Before we begin, I just wanna give a shout out to our show's number one fan - the President of the United States!"

"When I saw that Trump had insulted me on Twitter, I was going to tweet back immediately, but I had more important things to do", Fallon joked. "It's pretty much the only thing I have in common with National Football League players", Fallon said, referencing Trump's attacks on the National Football League and its players last season. "You're the president. And you're tweeting at me". He shouldn't be upset or angry.I go on the show, you know? Fallon later added, "I'm sorry".

Following a tweet by Trump which told the late night show host to "be a man", Fallon responded to the furore in the opening monologue of his show on Monday night. He said that other comedians were making fun of his interview with Trump because it was more lighthearted as Fallon usually likes to steer clear of politics. He then echoed what he tweeted in response on Sunday: He made a donation in Trump's name to the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services, which helps immigrant families. I agree. 'Do whatever you want with my hair. The president then told Fallon to "be a man".

Referring to that gesture, Fallon quipped during his show: "When Trump heard, he was like, 'I love RAICES".

But Fallon wasn't Trump's only target.

At a rally in SC on Monday, President Trump mentioned Fallon and the host's "tremendous ratings" again. "I agreed to do his show, and because I guess I was running at the time, he got tremendous ratings on that show", Trump said, according to Variety.
