“America’s reputation overseas is under attack from its own president,” Oliver said during a segment called Trump vs. The World. In the segment, Oliver recapped Trump’s many foreign policy failures and showed how the president has tarnished America’s reputation in other parts of the world.
But Oliver has a message for the rest of the world. “Donald Trump does not reflect America,” Oliver said, before walking that claim back a little, “I mean, to be completely honest, he does reflect it a bit, but the point is America is not one thing. It’s a beautiful mess of contradictions where good and bad are mixed together.”
He then defended all the good and bad America has to offer.
