Which brings us to today’s clip. With President Trump having (almost) formally announced a bid for reelection, host Jimmy Fallon of The Tonight Show offers a few thoughts on branding the next Trump campaign more effectively.

Despite working alone, he’s got a winner! In fact, Fallon may have just discovered the only possible effective slogan for Trump in the 2020 election. And he’s got a good bead on what the next Trump cabinet would look like.

Watch to the end for Jimmy’s much-gentler poke at the Bernie Sanders clan.
