John Oliver roasted Donald Trump on his late-night talk show, calling out his "cash grab" schemes ahead of the 2024 election.

“This year, more than ever, everything Trump does is going to be a cash grab,” the comedian, 46, said on his show. “This year has been one of the few times he’s actually been asked to pay the price for his actions but already, he’s got other people footing the bill.”

Oliver was flabbergasted at the 77-year-old trying to raise money to pay for his legal troubles.

“That is a man who talks non-stop about how he’s one of the richest men on Earth, begging strangers for money in a hostage video that looks that it was filmed in a house haunted by the world’s tackiest ghosts,” Oliver said, referring to a video of Trump pleading his fans to donate some bucks.

"Anything you can do to help," Trump said in the short clip, suggesting donations of $5, $10, $25 and $100. "Whatever you can do. We're gonna make it. We're gonna use that money well and we're gonna win."
