Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush will appear on the "Tonight Show" with Jimmy Fallon Tuesday night in a "Slow Jam The News" segment.
According to Business Insider
, which watched Tuesday's taping, Bush talks about some of his campaign promises with Fallon as the show's band, The Roots, plays in the background.
"I'm looking forward to hitting the campaign trail and discussing the issues that are important to all Americans — and having spirited debates with my fellow Republicans about how to solve them," said Bush, a Republican.
Quipped Fallon, "When it comes to debating, he's a master."
Roots rapper Black Thought then added, "He's a master debater."
Business Insider reports that Fallon asked Bush about his stance on immigration.
"Well Jimmy, we are a nation of immigrants, and I believe everyone should have the chance to achieve the American Dream," Bush replied, who then spoke his answer in Spanish.
Fallon then joked, "Whoa, hold the telefono. I know you just got back from Miami, but I didn't realize I was interviewing Governor Pitbull."
Pitbull is a rapper who grew up in the Little Havana section of Miami. Tuesday's segment closes with the Roots playing a rendition of Pitbull's song "Fireball."
Bush is not the first politician to appear on Fallon's "Slow Jam" segment, as President Barack Obama
, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie
, and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney
have all appeared.
According to Business Insider, the last person to "Slow Jam" with Fallon was NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams
last December. Williams is currently suspended
after being caught making up details of stories that appeared on the air over the years.
Bush, meanwhile, announced his candidacy for president
on Monday after months of conducting a pseudo-campaign as he raked in millions of fundraising dollars.
