A Saudi prince who engaged in a war of words with Donald Trump – branding him ‘a disgrace to America’ – has made a swift backtrack following the Republican’s shock victory in the US presidential election.
Prince Alwaleed bin Talal lashed out at The Donald following controversial remarks made on his campaign trail threatening to ban all Muslims from entering America until the threat of terrorism was more under control.
Following Trump’s remarks last December, the prince said on Twitter: ‘.@realDonaldTrump You are a disgrace not only to the GOP but to all America. Withdraw from the U.S presidential race as you will never win.’
