During Thursday night’s episode of “The Daily Show,” the South Africa native compared some of Trump’s controversial views with those of various African presidents.
"For me, as an African, there's just something familiar about Trump that makes me feel at home," Noah said. He then played two clips of South African President Jacob Zuma saying: “The influx of illegal immigrants, crime and failed business practices… it is also not true that all foreign nationals are involved in criminal activities, there are some that are – but not all of them.”
Noah added that he believes Trump is presidential, he just happens to be running on the wrong continent. In fact, the 31-year-old says the mogul could potentially make history, similar to President Obama’s 2008 election win.
“I understand Trump is a little scary -- a little exotic for some. A little out of America’s comfort zone. But this great country’s capable of bold leaps,” Noah said. “It took one in 2008 when it elected its first black president. Now, in 2016, I say it’s time to be bold -- once more -- and elect its first African president.”
