Trevor Noah has a theory about President Donald Trump's immigration policies.
The "Daily Show" host suggests Trump's crackdown on immigration might have something to do with the popularity of his wife, Melania Trump.
"While her husband has struggled to get his approval rating over 40%, Melania has consistently remained the country's most popular Trump, and personally, I love her too," Noah said on Wednesday's show. "We have so much in common. We're both immigrants, neither of us would be here if it weren't for Donald Trump. And, I'm just going to put it out there, we're both style icons.
"But the reason I've been thinking about Melania lately is because in the wake of Trump's recent immigration crackdown, I've started to notice something that's got me really concerned: I think Donald Trump is trying to deport Melania.

"Now you might be asking, why would he want to deport his wife? I don't know, but things haven't exactly been perfect between them," Noah said. "First of all, it's no secret that Melania barely spends any time at the White House. Secondly, when he tried to hold her hand in public, she tried to slap it away like a Slovenian Dikembe Mutombo."
Noah argued during his Wednesday night show that Trump must be targeting the first lady because he's cracking down on immigrants who've illegally worked in the country, those who've sponsored family members for US citizenship (also known as "chain migration"), and those who may require government assistance. Noah said the first lady was guilty of all three offenses.
"Yes, one of the things Donald Trump hates most about America's immigration policy is that immigrants' families can come live with them in the US," Noah said. "The problem? Melania's parents immigrated to the US that way."
The Trump administration's latest policy seeks to restrict low-income people, who might become a "public charge," from immigrating to the country.
"Well guess who lives in a free house provided by the United States. Melania motherf---ing Trump!" he said.
