Trevor joked that President Trump is more concerned about the stock market than the lives of American citizens.
"Trump is great for jokes, but in times of crisis, Trump is the worst person to reassure the nation."
He also went on to joke about the man Trump left in charge of taking care of things - vice-president Mike Pence.
