Trevor Noah on Donald Trump’s Business Conflicts: ‘We Don’t Need Someone Who Is Distracted’

Noah also suggested that Trump’s business interests might make for a “less focused” president.

“But people who voted for Trump said they wanted someone who would run America like a business,” he said. “More and more though, it seems like Trump is running America for his business. Maybe you should put that on a hat.”
