Donald Trump may seem like an unlikely leader for America, but on Thursday’s Daily Show host Trevor Noah argued that Trump may actually be an ideal president—for Africa.

“For me, as an African, there’s just something familiar about Trump that makes me feel at home,” said Noah, who is from South Africa.

Noah then compared comments made by Trump (on everything from immigration to self-praise) to comments made by a variety of current and former African leaders, including South African president Jacob Zuma, Zimbabwe president Robert Mugabe, and even the former Libyan leader, Muammar al-Gaddafi.

“This country is capable of bold leaps. It took one in 2008 when it elected its first black president. Now in 2016 I say it is time to be bold once more and elect America’s first African president,” Noah says.
