    Trump's first appearance was in a remote that aired October 1, 1986: Dave paid a quick visit to his office at Trump Tower. (This was referenced in the next clip.) Trump's first guest appearance on Late Night was taped fourteen months later on December 2, 1987, and aired on December 22. He came on to promote his book he didn't write, _Art of the Deal_.
