Trevor Noah, the “Daily Show” host has mocked US President Trump’s latest claim and widely criticized move to pull U.S. troops out of Syria and abandon our Kurdish allies.
“If you are facing the biggest crisis of your presidency, what would you do? Probably lay low and focus on putting out this fire. But you see, you’re not Donald Trump, because if you were Donald Trump, you would start a whole new fire,” said Trevor Noah.
Most part of Trevor Noah’s show on Monday night centered on the current controversy rocking United State President Trump. Trevor out-rightly announced that the Washington would be withdrawing its troops from Northern Syria so it can pave the way for a Turkish invasion, thereby abandoning the Kurdish allies who’ve fought alongside American soldiers to vanquish ISIS.
As it stands, Kurdish forces are holding in captivity many of the 10,000 captured ISIS fighters, so leaving the Kurds to the slaughter is not only unreasonable, but could also allow ISIS to bounce back.
“OK, this is just insane. At 11 p.m. last night Trump announced—at 11 p.m.—that the U.S. would be pulling its troops out of a key part of Syria. Even crazier is that he didn’t tell the Pentagon,” said Trevor Noah.
“OK, OK! No, no, no! Before you judge Trump, he is technically correct: there is nobody who matches his wisdom,” joked Noah, adding, “No other person had the wisdom to stare directly into a solar eclipse.”
As I have stated strongly before, and just to reiterate, if Turkey does anything that I, in my great and unmatched wisdom, consider to be off limits, I will totally destroy and obliterate the Economy of Turkey (I’ve done before!). They must, with Europe and others, watch over…

The presenter cum comedian however advised the Kurds on what to do when it comes to getting on Trump’s good list: “Kurdish forces, you need to phone Trump, and you need to tell him you have dirt on Joe Biden and if he wants it, he’s going to have to give you military aid, or as I like to call it, a kurd pro quo.”
