'Why are you tweeting at me?' Jimmy Fallon hits back at Trump

  • President Donald Trump reignited a fight with late-night host Jimmy Fallon on Monday at a rally in South Carolina

President Donald Trump took his issues with Jimmy Fallon from Twitter to the podium on Monday, as part of his stump speech for South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster.

In his monologue Monday, he added, "When Trump heard, he was like, 'I love RAICES - they're my favorite peanut butter cup".

The president also went on to say that Jimmy Kimmel used to wait outside his studio to open Trump's vehicle door for him. "It's all in the fun of the show".

He added that he had made a donation to the Refugee and Immigrants Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES), in the president's name.

Pharmacy stocks are getting slammed after Amazon buys PillPack (AMZN, WBA)
After months of speculation that it would get into the pharmacy business, online retailer Amazon is buying a pharmacy company. The startup has raised upwards of $120 million in funding from backers including TechStars, Menlo Ventures, and Accel.

Fallon recently told The Hollywood Reporter that he "made a mistake" on the September 15, 2016, episode and would do it differently.

"So, if you've ever read a Yelp review and thought, 'Who's got the time to write this?' The answer is: the President of the United States", Fallon quipped. "I'm depressed. ... What do you want me to do?..." The interaction spurred a big backlash against Fallon for what some saw as a light-hearted "normalising" of Trump's out-of-the-mainstream policy agenda at a crucial point of the presidential campaign.

The Tonight Show host hit back at the President at the start of last night's show.

Jimmy recently apologised for the interview, where he "ruffled" Mr Trump's hair. Fallon says he realized that he had more important things to do, then quipped that the president is the one who really should have more important things to do.

Trump warns Harley-Davidson: 'We won't forget'
A Harley-Davidson should never be built in another country-never! But Trump says the tariffs are just an excuse and that the company had existing plans to move .

Jimmy Fallon has never been a fan of talking about politics. "That's all I'm here to do, is make you happy".

On Sunday, Trump tweeted at Fallon to stop "whimpering" about it. "And, looking back, I would do it differently".

"I know that you guys are cheering", Noah told his audience, "but I'm sorry, I think that was the wrong thing to do". He's the president! What are you doing?.

But he has largely declined to address Trump, aside from monologue jokes - and now, it doesn't even matter. "Why are you tweeting at me?" Fallon was criticized for not directly challenging Trump and playing his appearance for laughs. Fallon otherwise keeps away from getting too political, unlike fellow late night hosts Stephen Colbert and Seth Meyers.

EU's 25% Bourbon tariff comes into force
The EU reacted to the decision of US President Donald Trump to impose duties on steel and aluminum from Europe, Canada and Mexico. In the end, we believe that the current tensions will eventually subside as the USA midterm elections in November approach.

"I've never called this human in my life".
