Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal said on Twitter that Donald Trump was a disgrace to the United States following the candidate's call for a ban on Muslims entering the country.
“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," Prince Alwaleed tweeted
to the tweet hours later: "Dopey Prince @Alwaleed_Talal wants to control our U.S. politicians with daddy’s money. Can’t do it when I get elected. #Trump2016."
Prince Alwaleed, a nephew of Saudi Arabia's King Salman, has holdings in a number of international companies, including Twitter and Citigroup.
