WASHINGTON - US President Donald Trump said on Monday that he has "great confidence in King Salman and the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia" following mass arrests of Saudi Arabian royals, ministers and businessmen in the biggest anti-corruption purge of the kingdom's affluent elite in its modern history.

Trump also tweeted that "they know exactly what they are doing," adding: "Some of those they are harshly treating have been 'milking' their country for years."
