we have unified the gop. >> jimmy: so have i, it just so happens that i unified them against me. [ laughter ] but i still unified them. that counts, okay? >> all right, donald, my interview with jimmy fallon is about to start. >> jimmy: are you going to do a a lip-sync battle? >> i certainly hope not.

[ laughter and applause ] was it high school? high school? was it high school? >> you know, jimmy? >> jimmy: a lot in college? >> i'm not gonna touch that. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: okay, all right. well -- >> and i have no intention of using the twitter hashtag you suggested. >> jimmy: oh, yeah, no. it's a good one. no one has taken it yet. think about it. how is running for president, it just seems absolutely grueling to me.
how are you even just standing right now, do you know where you are? i mean, every day you're doing 100 interviews. >> it is -- it's exhausting, but i'll tell you, i'm having more fun than i've ever had in my life. >> jimmy: is that right? >> yeah, i've probably got a screw loose, but it is -- it is amazing. i mean, you're on the road nonstop. you know, i was up earlier today at charlie's butcher shop up in buffalo. [ applause ] and -- had a fantastic sandwich there, visiting with people there. started out meeting with delegates, we're on the road, flying all around. >> jimmy: what's the best food you've had since you've been around campaigning? >> the best food -- listen, actually the beef sandwich i had today at charlie's butcher shop if you're in buffalo, go visit charlie, it's awfully good. [ applause ] >> jimmy: there you go. i'll do that. is it tough on the family? 'cause i know your kids go out with you and your wife. >> it's hands down the hardest part. >> jimmy: yeah. >> so, we've got -- heidi is on the road nonstop.
and for the first half of the campaign or so, the girls, mostly stayed home and were in school. and -- >> jimmy: so cute. your girls are -- >> thankfully they look like their mother. i'm very grateful. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: they're really cute. i don't know which one it was, but maybe the older one, you went to give her a kiss and she goes, "dad!" [ laughter ] >> that would be caroline. >> jimmy: caroline, yeah. >> but today is caroline's eighth birthday, so i want to say happy birthday. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: happy birthday, caroline! happy, happy birthday! have a great one. >> and you've got two little girls, you know how much fun it is. >> jimmy: they're tiny, they're three and two. >> just get ready. >> jimmy: really? yeah, yeah, yeah. >> no, it's -- as they get older you're more and more wrapped around their fingers, they discover -- i don't know how it works in your house, but in our house, heidi is the tough one and daddy's the pushover. daddy's the one they come to when mommy's saying no. >> jimmy: oh, completely, oh yeah. that's the way it works already. but they're babies too, so -- >> it doesn't change. [ light laughter ] >> jimmy: oh, really? no, not at all. >> well, look,
ours are five and eight so they're not exactly driving yet. but -- >> jimmy: soon, yeah. so what has to happen now? 'cause now the new york primary is next tuesday. >> uh-huh. >> jimmy: not looking so good for you, right? sorry to bring it up, but -- >> thank you for rubbing my nose in it. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: no, no, no. >> look, actually the early polling was challenging, but i feel pretty confident as a a result of tonight that we're gonna win new york with 100% of the votes. [ applause ] >> jimmy: that's the attitude, that's the attitude you gotta have. so new york is not gonna happen, right? [ laughter ] but then what has to happen though? because i'm trying to understand everything, i'm reading everything i can. i don't quite understand delegates and what has to work and there's a magic number. you and trump might not -- neither of you might not hit the number, then what happens? >> so listen, new york is trump's home state. he's probably gonna do well here. a lot people expect him to get north of 50%. we're campaigning hard and trying to work to earn delegates, and i think we'll do
that and regardless of what happens here, in all likelihood we are headed to a contested convention in cleveland. where i'm gonna come in with a a bunch of delegates, donald's gonna come in with a bunch of delegates, neither one of us will have gotten the majority. and then it's gonna be a battle to see who can earn a majority from the delegates who are elected by the people. and jimmy, if that happens, i think we're gonna be in the much stronger position, i think donald's highest total will be on the first ballot. and we will naturally, you know one way to think about it is where do the rubio delegates and the kasich delegates go? and i think they naturally come to us. and i think we'll win a a majority at the convention and then we'll go on and beat hillary in november. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: if it happens to be trump, do you, 'cause everyone's asking this question, will you support the nominee? >> well i am working very, very hard -- [ laughter ] not to have to answer that question.
>> jimmy: he's a master debater, you guys. he knows what he's doing. but you -- you do, right? you have to? [ laughter ] >> i agree, i have to beat him in cleveland. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: okay. what if -- >> and listen, part of the reason why is poll after poll after poll shows if donald is the nominee, hillary wins and she wins by double digits. [ cheers ] >> okay. so, if you're a hillary supporter, you're rooting for donald. but what we're saying is we're saying really republicans coming together behind our campaign, because we don't want to forfeit the white house and hand over another four or eight more years of an economic agenda that people are hurting. we've got the lowest percentage of americans working since 1977. my campaign is focused on bringing jobs back to america, raising wages, bringing manufacturing back from china, back from mexico. expanding so young people coming out of school actually have jobs, have a future,
that's what this election's about. what we're doing isn't working and i think we have to win in november. and that's a lot of the reason so many republicans are uniting behind our campaign. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: well, i wish you all the luck. and i thank you for coming on. >> thank you, jimmy. >> jimmy: thank you for being a good sport. senator ted cruz, everybody!
