Trump claims Stewart wants him to appear on the final show of The Daily Show on August 6:
They have invited me. I like Jon Stewart — I think he’s good. They’re begging me to go on. I would do it … the problem is it looks like pandering. It looks so false and so phony if I do it.
On Obama appearing on the show:
I don’t think there’s anything wrong with President Obama having done it. I know he took a lot of heat, you know, because they said, ‘What are you doing on a comedy show?’ I think it’s OK. It would’ve been better if he had Stewart come over to the White House, because it would’ve cost nothing. Stewart would’ve loved it, and you’d have saved a lot of money.
