Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel thinks he might be able to change President Donald Trump's mind on a few things if he can somehow convince him to come on his show.

Kimmel sat down with ABC, the same network that airs his weeknight show, and was asked if Trump will visit him next week when Kimmel's show will be taped in Brooklyn.

"I would guess that he is not planning to visit me anytime soon. He and Sean Hannity have date night on those nights. It's tough to break away," Kimmel said.

When asked if he'd like to have him on, Kimmel replied, "Absolutely. I have a lot of questions for Donald Trump. Maybe this is crazy, but I feel like I could turn him around on a couple of things. I think he needs to be surrounded by better people. ... I just think he's changed positions so frequently."

Kimmel has been highly critical of Trump on his show, particularly around the healthcare debate. Kimmel's wife gave birth to a son with a heart defect earlier this year that will require years of specialized medical care.

Kimmel has slammed Trump and Republican lawmakers for trying to undo the Obamacare in favor of something that might not require that preexisting conditions are covered.

Regarding Donald Trump Jr., who had a Twitter feud with Kimmel this week, Kimmel had this to say:

"He's an idiot, let's just start with that. This is an imbecile whose job seems to be tweeting, as far as I can tell. With that said, I do admire that he's very loyal to his father."
