Billionaire Saudi Arabian Prince Alwaleed bin Talal slammed the presidential candidate on Friday, calling him a “disgrace” to theRepublican Party and “to all America.” In a tweet, he said Trump should withdraw from the presidential race, as he “will never win.”
His remarks come after Trump — the GOP national poll leader — proposed to temporarily bar Muslims from entering the United States. Many prominent politicians and presidential competitors have decried the proposal, and some polls have shown that most Americans do not agree with it.
Since floating several proposals in response to terrorist attacks in Paris and California, Trump has faced backlash around the globe, and some businesses have started to cut off branding relationships with Trump.
Trump responded in a tweet by saying “dopey prince” Alwaleed wanted to “control U.S. politicians with daddy’s money”.
