Saudi prince puts aside differences with Trump

11-Nov-2016 :

Riyadh: A billionaire Saudi prince has congratulated US president-elect Donald Trump after previously calling him a disgrace who should have pulled out of the race.


“President elect @realDonaldTrump whatever the past differences, America has spoken, congratulations & best wishes for your presidency,” Prince Al Waleed Bin Talal said on his official Twitter account, after US election results on Wednesday confirmed Trump’s unexpected victory over Hillary Clinton.


Al Waleed is an unusually outspoken member of the Saudi royal family who chairs Kingdom Holding Co. The diversified firm’s interests include US-based giants Citigroup and Time Warner.


Late last year Al Waleed took exception to what his office called Trump’s “anti-Islam statement”, a proposal that all Muslims should be temporarily barred from entering the United States.
