Saudi Media Claim Billionaire Saudi Prince Delivered ‘Knockout’ to Trump
Tweets from Billionaire Saudi Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal have already delivered a knockout blow to Donald Trump’s presidential hopes, according to a Saudi newspaper.
“Knockout: Alwaweed Bin Talal caused a decline in Trump’s popularity,” said the headline, with a photoshopped picture of Trump glaring at the Saudi Royal.
‘The American people now realize that Donald Trump is irresponsible, not particularly clever, made many misguided decisions, and unless the Saudi prince came to his rescue he would end up broke,” the Sabq newsite reported. “The last thing they want is a president who would sell off everything to cover his debts.”
The article follows a second round of trash-talk between the two billionaires.
Trump started the second round Jan. 28 by retweeting an image of Fox News personality Megyn Kelly photoshopped into a picture of bin Talal and his sister.
That tweet was likely aimed at Fox, not Alwaleed. Prior to the debate, Breitbart reported that Google and Fox had invited a young, female Islamic-advocate, plus a young attractive female 1994 illegal immigrant, to pitch questions, likely aimed at Trump. The top leaders of both Google and Fox favor profit-boosting large-scale immigration. But Trump dodged the likely Fox News ambush and instead hosted a benefit for veterans in a nearby building.
But the Saudi responded with a taunt that he had earlier saved Trump from bankruptcy.
