"Daily Show" host Trevor Noah said locking up political rivals was President Trump’s “wet dream,” after Trump backed Saudi Arabian leaders for arresting political rivals and other figures of influence over the weekend.

“Wait a minute ... consolidating power and getting rid of his political rivals,” Noah said. “I wonder how President Trump feels about this whole thing.”

“Of course, Trump loves this. Locking up political rivals is Trump’s wet dream,” Noah continued.

Trump expressed support for Saudi Arabian leaders Monday on Twitter, following surprise arrests over the weekend of influential Saudi princes, military officers, businessmen, and governmental ministers overseen by the crown prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammed bin Salman.

“I have great confidence in King Salman and the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, they know exactly what they are doing,” Trump tweeted. “Some of those they are harshly treating have been ‘milking’ their country for years!”

The arrests signal that King Salman is behind his son’s efforts to initiate anti-corruption reforms to gut senior royals and create greater transparency. Trump’s son-in-law and White House senior adviser Jared Kushner has visited the country three times this year, while Trump himself visited the country in May.

“He probably phoned the prince and he was like, ‘Is it true? Is it true that you are locking up all the enemies? ’He’s like, ‘That’s right Donald, all of them.’ ‘Even Hillary?’ ‘No Donald, this is a different country.’ ‘Awwww, sad!” Noah said as he impersonated Trump and the Crown Prince.

On Friday, Trump encouraged the Justice Department to investigate Democrats such as Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta.
