Following the broadcast, Fallon has been roundly criticised for “selling his soul to the devil for ratings,” as one Twitter user put it. Another claimed that giving Trump airtime “humanises a monster”.

Trump’s election campaign has proved a controversial one to date. In June 2015, he accused Mexican immigrants of being rapists and promised to build a wall between the US and Mexico border to keep immigrants out.

Trump has also called for a ban on all Muslims entering the United States and claimed that Obama was the founder of ISIS.
