While speaking at a reelection event for South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster, Trump voiced his distaste for late-night hosts, refusing to even say Stephen Colbert's name, only calling him "that guy on CBS".
O'Brien cautions the hosts to be civil.
Fallon responded by saying in his opening monologue that he had never spoken to the President about the ratings.
"Hey, lowlife", Fallon greeted Colbert in a video chat during the Tuesday, June 26, episodes of their shows.
Trump has long held a grudge against Colbert because his show lampoons the president on a daily basis.
Colbert continued pressing Trump on where her support truly lies until she finally revealed the message written on the back of her jacket: "How Many More Monstrous Acts Do I Have To Support Before People Finally Start Seeing Me As Complicit In All This?" Colbert responds, "Hey, lost soul".
"Naturally, Trump used his rally to focus on the issue everyone's most enraged about: talk shows", Colbert said. "Why are you tweeting at me?" "By the way, Donald, I don't know if you've seen my ratings the past two years, but you didn't help".
But Trump especially went after NBC star Fallon, who he called a "lost soul". "Because now he's gonna lose all of us", Trump said.
The late show hosts may have had the last word for now, but then Trump's not really known for his silences. "That's Conan", Colbert said, before placing a call to O'Brien. "He's president? How's he doing?"
"Where do you want to eat?" Fallon and Colbert then discussed lunch plans.
"Well, guys, give him time".
Fallon had received criticism for his interview in which, apart from imitating Trump, he tousled the Republican candidate's hair and asked few inconvenient questions.
