A member of the Saudi royal family expressed his strong disproval for Donald Trump on Friday.
Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal called the controversial Republican frontrunner a "disgrace" to America and urged him to immediately leave the race.
"Withdraw from the U.S presidential race as you will never win," he tweeted.
.@realDonaldTrump 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 (@الوليد بن طلال) 1449860557.0
The message from Bin Talal comes after Trump said he would place a temporary ban on all Muslim immigration if he were to become president.
This is not the first time the Saudi billionaire has become involved in U.S. political affairs.
As The Hill noted, Bin Talal's $10 million check after 9/11 was rejected by then-New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani over previous controversial remarks on Israel.
Forbes ranked Bin Talal as the 34th richest man in the world, estimating his net worth at $24.9 billion.
UPDATE, 11:05 p.m. ET: Donald Trump 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— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump) 1449892382.0
