The "Daily Show" host drags the president for pulling the U.S. out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership and never replacing it.
On Tuesday night, the "Daily Show" host went after the president for withdrawing the U.S. from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) during his first week of presidency and never replacing it.
The TPP is now made up of 11 of the world's most advanced countries that make up roughly one-sixth of the global economy. The TPP is reportedly heading toward a new agreement, which analysts are saying will likely leave the U.S. playing catch-up as Chinese influence grows stronger.
"The TPP is a lot like TP," Noah said, referencing toilet paper. "I'll tell you what happened to me with my roommate once. He insisted on buying the shittiest, cheap toilet paper that you could find. I hated it. I was like, 'We're gonna get rid of the toilet paper.' So he did, but he didn't replace it with anything else. And if you don't replace what you don't like with something else, you're gonna be in deep shit -- literally and figuratively."
The U.S. has also fallen behind in regard to climate change, which Noah blamed on Trump's decision to pull out of the Paris Climate Accord back in June. In fact, the U.S. and China -- two of the world's biggest polluters -- have actually switched places. China reportedly plans to spend $361 billion on renewable energy, which will create at least 13 million new jobs. Meanwhile, the U.S. is no longer even considered a world leader in combating climate change.
"Donald Trump is so good for China that they're even using his presidency as pro-communism propaganda," Noah said before showing various news clips of reports claiming the Chinese people find Trump laughable compared to their leader, Xi Jinping.
