This is an older but really hilarious clip of Trevor Noah discussing and making fun of Trumps efforts of trying to appeal to the black community to eventually get there votes in the upcoming November election. They show Trump going to visit a black church in Detroit, Michigan.

Trevor Noah opens this clip discussing how Trump has no support from any black voters in a recent poll done in Ohio and Pennsylvania. So after these polls came out, the Trump campaign decided they need to do something to get back voters to vote for Trump. Noah said jokingly his options were to go to a barbershop, a Tyler Perry movie, or a black church. Trump ended up going to a black church to gain support from blacks. Trevor Noah showed a clip of Trump at the black church swaying to the music and giving a speech. They then show Trump receiving a white prayer cloth from the congregation but looked a little confused. Noah then jokingly says how he was confused because his friends where them on there heads (referring to the KKK) and the black congregation wears them on their shoulders.

Towards the end of this clip, he brought Roy Wood Jr. on the show to discuss his thoughts on Trump trying to get black voters. He says how black people go to church to pray about Trump not getting elected and he shows up to their church one day. They then show how empty the church was and Roy Wood Jr. claims that a black church is never empty because they always have so much to pray for. I think Trump doesn't have a good chance on gaining support from blacks due to his previous racist comments and behavior.
