Seth Meyers took aim at Donald Trump’s significant conflicts of interest on Wednesday.

The “Late Night” host said the president-elect continues to face “a barrage of questions over his foreign business ties” and how they may affect his administration.

Meyers recalled how Trump had promised throughout his presidential campaign to get tough on China, but the comedian said that vow was now compromised after it emerged a Chinese state-run bank rents office space from him inside Trump Tower.

“To be fair to Trump, he might not have realized the bank was owned by China,” said Meyers, before delivering the killer line, “What’s the bank’s name? The Bank of China.”

“We keep getting more reasons to worry that Trump could use his office to benefit himself,” he later added, before likening Trump to former President Richard Nixon“Just a couple of tricky dicks,” he said of the duo.
