The New Jersey governor said his pricey plan to track tourists and students using fingerprints "is a lot less expensive than [Donald Trump's] 2,000-mile wall across the entire southern border."

Trevor Noah previously noted that he picked his first week of Daily Show guests very strategically: Monday's debut with Kevin Hart represented the show's comedic priority, and Wednesday's episode with Chris Christie noted its political scope.

During the incoming host's first political interview on Wednesday, he grilled the New Jersey governor on his policies on immigration and Social Security reform, and how to work effectively with Democrats.

Christie explained that his pricey plan to track immigrants on tourist and student visas using fingerprints "is a lot less expensive than [Donald Trump’s] 2,000-mile wall across the entire southern border."

Noah also called out Christie after the candidate said, “Why would we trust the government? They’ve already lied to us," as the host asked the public official, "Who is the government? I’m confused."

He concluded by asking Christie about his strategy to boost his poll numbers, to which the governor responded: “Coming on the first week of The Daily Show With Trevor Noah."
