Trevor Noah Trashes Trump's Latest 'D*ck Move': Charging Secret Service for Rent

Election '16

President-elect Trump managed to coast through the entire 2016 presidential election without releasing his tax returns, so it's still unclear how much he's worth. But one thing is: Trump is bound to get even richer in the White House even though he's pledged to work for just $1 a year as President.

“Trump is like, ‘Now that I’m president, I can finally be a successful businessman!’” Noah said, drawing on Trump's international and unprecedented conflicts of interest, which pundits failed to question during Trump's 17-month campaign. 

"The globe is dotted with such potential conflicts," The New York Times reported three weeks after the election. The article also noted that, "Mr. Trump’s companies have business operations in at least 20 countries, with a particular focus on the developing world, including outposts in nations like India, Indonesia and Uruguay."

"U.S. foreign policy may be determined by where Trump has a hotel!" Noah exclaimed. "It's like the whole world's a monopoly board!" 

But the Secret Service alone could make Trump richer. An estimated $1.5 million of taxpayer money will be used to secure an entire floor in Trump Tower for Donald Trump and his family; Fairly ironic coming from a "billionaire" who dodged taxes for decades.

“That’s kind of a d*ck move. You’re going to charge rent to the people who are there to keep you alive?” Noah said. "You know if one [of the agents] takes a bullet for Trump, he’s probably going to charge them for his dry cleaning bill.”
