Seth Meyers offers Donald Trump NBC show if he drops out of race (Video)

Seth Makes Trump an Amazing Offer

In response to Donald Trump's comments about "Late Night with Seth Meyers," the comedian has made the presidential candidate an amazing offer.

Claiming that he's heard a theory that Trump actually never wanted to be president of the United States and is just looking for ways to undermine his candidacy, Meyers said he came up "with a way out" for Trump.

"If you drop out of the presidential race any time between now and the beginning of the GOP convention on July 18, NBC will award you a 13-episode scripted series where you would play the president of the United States of America," Meyers said on Thursday's episode. "You'd still get to be the president of the United States, but on TV."

Watch the video above to hear Seth Myers' offer to Donald Trump.

Adding that Meyers has not run this by the network — NBC added a disclaimer at the end of segment, stating the proposition was not real — he offered Trump a premiere in January, just in time for the inauguration of the next president.

This way, he said, the world can "watch you be president with no real-world consequences!"

However, Meyers said Trump is "still banned" from "Late Night."

Meyers laid out his ban on Tuesday night, a protest of the GOP presidential candidate's refusal to issue press credentials to the Washington Post. Trump laughed off his denied access on Wednesday, explaining he only does shows with "good" TV ratings anyway.

"He has begged me to do the show for the last two years," Trump said. "I have told him emphatically 'no.' I only like doing shows with good ratings, which as everybody knows, I only make better (by a lot)."
