On Monday's late-night shows, the hosts all had a field day with both the reporting and Trump's response.

Jimmy Fallon joked on "The Tonight Show" that Trump saying it was his dream to have his face on Mount Rushmore is "sort of like Dr. Fauci saying it's his dream to play centre for the Los Angeles Lakers."

"If I was the president of the United States, what does it harm to ask," he joked. "I'd ask. What's the worst that could happen?"

Meanwhile, on "The Daily Show", Trevor Noah suggested putting Trump on Mount Rushmore wasn't a bad idea.

"That's right, Trump thinks that he deserves to be on Mount Rushmore. And honestly, I agree with him," he said. "I think we should put Trump on Mount Rushmore. But not a carving. I think we should actually put him on Mount Rushmore. No phone, no internet, problem solved.

"Actually, I wouldn't even mind Trump's face being carved into Mount Rushmore, just as long as they choose the right picture, because there are a lot of Trump faces I could get behind," suggesting, "trying-to-catch-a-baseball Trump" and "hair-blowing-in-the-wind Trump."

Noah added, "And who says it has to be a face?"
