Colbert recounted an interview in which Trump said he had received a “small loan” of a million dollars to begin his empire. 

"It has not been easy for me, it has not been easy for me," Trump told Matt Lauer at a New Hampshire town hall earlier this week. "I started off in Brooklyn, my father gave me a small loan of a million dollars."

Colbert took the billionaire to task, saying: "Clearly, this is the inspiring story of a young man who made good. The classic story of riches to richer." 

The comedian, who had Trump on his show last month, felt that if a million bucks isn’t a big deal, he should put his money where his mouth is and sign a check for the children of Harlem, New York.
