The United States under President Trump has been retreating from leadership roles in Asia and Europe. Closer to home, his hot rhetoric about trade with Mexico and Canada is propelling our neighbors to start pulling away.

#EndorseThis: Trevor Noah Sends B-Team To Scout Trump’s C-Grade Border Wall

In today’s clip, Trevor Noah finds himself distracted by frivolous office-harassment claims…so he sends pesky butt-touching duo Dulce Sloan and Michael Kosta to Tijuana instead.

In Trevor’s world, Trump is ridiculous, and he lets the Orange One have it for a full five minutes.…
