It's not just the American media that has been rough on U.S. President Trump since taking office on January 20th, the Dutch too have joined the likes of "Saturday Night Live" in having a laugh at Trump's expense. Arjen Lubach, the Jon Stewart of the Netherlands, roasted Trump, using his own words to welcome the U.S. president to the low country.

Lubach's weekly comedy show "Zondag met Lubach," "Sunday with Lubach" in English, uses satirical comedy to skewer the political news of the day. In taking on Trump, Lubach aired a video that ripped into the president on everything from his pledge to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, the controversy over the size of his inauguration crowd to issues closer to home, like NATO.  

"If you screw NATO, you're gonna make our problems great again. They are gonna be yuge. They are gonna be enormous. It's true. Please, don't," the video's narrator said.
