Comedian and talk show host Trevor Noah said promises that Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpBiden adds to vote margin over Trump after Milwaukee County recount Krebs says allegations of foreign interference in 2020 election 'farcical'  Republicans ready to become deficit hawks again under a President Biden MORE will make a good commander-in-chief are nothing more than lies.

“Whether you’re a Democrat, or even a Republican, you cannot lie and say Donald Trump would be a good president,” he said in an interview with The Daily Beast published Friday. "That’s just a fallacy.

“I do know that if Donald Trump becomes president, A: I don’t know if I’ll be able to stay here, and B: I don’t know what the new laws or rules will become,” added Noah, who is South African.“I mean, this is the same man who says he wants to open up the libel laws, change them so people like you and me can be sued if he feels what we’re saying about him is damaging — even if it’s based in fact. So we don’t know where we’ll be.”


Noah said he expects anarchy during Trump’s likely presidential nomination at the Republican National Convention next week.

“In Cleveland, I’m looking forward to any bit of chaos that happens in the process,” he said. "I’m still excited for the idea that some delegates will try to stage a coup. I’m excited at the idea of it somehow slipping out of Donald Trump’s grasp.

“But I’m also excited at the prospect of him winning in the end and taking the Republican Party to the place that I feel like it has been basically alluding that it wanted to go all along but didn’t realize that they actually didn’t want to. I’m anticipating chaos — both in the streets and at the event," Noah continued.
