‘You got your wife from a foreign country,’ the ‘Daily Show’ host quips

Daily Show host Trevor Noah continued waging his war of words against Donald Trump on Wednesday, delivering an impassioned “viral rant” about the Republican presidential nominee’s anti-immigration rhetoric and “Make America Great Again” slogan.

While Trump has pledged to deport millions of undocumented immigrants and to ban Muslims from entering the U.S. if he is elected, Noah asserted that America is great precisely because it welcomes people from all over the world.

“The good people of America know the greatest country in the world is the country where you can come in and create anything,” Noah said in a blistering 2-minute monologue.

Noting that Apple founder Steve Jobs’ biological father was a Syrian migrant, Noah said, “The iPhone came from Syria, Donald Trump. The same iPhone that you tweet sā€‘ā€‘ā€‘ about the refugees on. So every time you tweet with those fat little tiny fingers of yours, you should be saying thank you to them for giving you that same phone.”

Taking a personal shot, he added, “You got your wife from a foreign country, Donald Trump!”
