If ever there was a tweet that would resonate with every single one of Donald Trump’s supporters, this is it. From billionaire Saudi Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal:
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.
— الوليد بن طلال (@Alwaleed_Talal) December 11, 2015
Trump’s ad basically writes itself.
@Alwaleed_Talal @realDonaldTrump No, Prince, not a disgrace…He's a disruptor certainly. But that's part of his appeal. You'll get along.

Prince Alwaleed, who once controlled the “second-largest holding of voting stock in News Corp after the Murdoch family,” sold off a sizable amount of those holdings in February of this year. From CNN/Money:
Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal said Wednesday that his company will shed most of its stake in Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp., taking its 6.6% ownership down to 1%.
But while Alwaleed’s Kingdom Holding Company will reduce its stake in News Corp. (NWSA), it will maintain its 6.6% holding of Murdoch’s entertainment company, 21st Century Fox (FOXA).
FYI, Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal's Kingdom Foundation is a shareholder in Rupert Murdoch's company News Corp. https://t.co/4KHE9u4obO

Now the only question is, what will Trump say in response?

Saudi prince's message will probably only give @realDonaldTrump a boost. https://t.co/0OkgOhSniR

Update. Donald Trump has responded:
Dopey Prince @Alwaleed_Talal wants to control our U.S. politicians with daddy’s money. Can’t do it when I get elected. #Trump2016

WHOOPS! Biden meant to say ‘I applaud Canada’ but instead named a different country
