NBC "Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon deleted a tweet late Sunday night in which he praised himself for a donation to a pro-immigration non-profit intending to troll President Donald Trump.

In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Fallon expressed regret for a 2016 show in which he tussled Trump's hair and joked with the then-Republican nominee. Trump responded on Twitter Sunday that Fallon was "whimpering" and intoned "Be a man Jimmy!"

Fallon tweeted in response that he would be donating in Trump's name to the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES), a non-profit that provides affordable legal representation to legal and illegal immigrants.

But in a now-deleted tweet caught by others, Fallon responded to his own tweet by praising himself. "This is great!! Thank you," Fallon tweeted. In a second tweet, Fallon just tweeted "I'm."

While both tweets were deleted, an archive shows Fallon did in fact make both the "This is great!!" and "I’m" posts.
