"Late Night" host Seth Meyers last night took a "Closer Look" at Donald Trump's alleged flip-flopping on "some of the biggest economic issues of the 2016 campaign."

Trump has faced scrutiny for recent claims he made regarding proposed tax hikes for the wealthy, seemingly at odds with earlier campaign trail promises of indiscriminate tax cuts. The presumptive GOP nominee has since walked back his contradictory new platform, saying, "If I increase it on the wealthy, that means they're still going to be paying less than they are paying now. I'm talking about increasing it from my (original) tax proposal."


"Trump is a Magic 8 Ball," Meyers said. "You shake it up and you can get one answer. You shake it again and you get something completely different."

"If anyone seems willing to accept Trump's sudden change of heart, it's the GOP establishment," he continued. "Because even as many have sworn never to back him, others are falling in line."
