Trevor Noah Recaps Trump’s Afghanistan Speech on ‘The Daily Show’

Here’s a clip from last night’s Daily Show, where Trevor Noah recaps Donald Trump’s primetime speech on his Afghanistan strategy earlier this week, where he revealed no specific details except that he plans to send more troops there at some point in the future. During the speech, Trump said his first instinct was to pull out of Afghanistan completely, but as Trevor Noah notes, one of the things that helped Trump change his mind was a photo National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster showed him of Afghan women wearing miniskirts in 1972. “I’ve gotta say, that’s a genius move by the General right there,” Noah says. “I mean, Trump may not care about bringing democracy to Afghanistan, but bringing miniskirts? That’s a different story.”
