Trevor Noah on Monday attempted to answer the question on the minds of many Americans.
“The Daily Show” host aired video of Trump, in November 2011, claiming then-President Barack Obama would attack Iran to boost his chances in the 2012 election.
Trump also repeated the claim on Twitter multiple times.
“Isn’t it pathetic?” Trump says in the old clip.
“He’s right,” said Noah. “It definitely is.”
