VIA| Donald Trump has managed to dominate the news cycle once again by saying that we should put a temporary ban on Muslim immigration until we figure out a way to properly vet them.
This has caused many people on both the right and left to freak out and criticize Trump and so far he hasn’t backed down.
Now, it appears that the backlash has gone international and Saudi royalty is chiming in on the real estate mogul’s 2016 candidacy.
.@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.

Hmmm. Something tells me that Donald Trump isn’t going to take campaign advice from a Saudi prince. And wouldn’t you know it? I was right.
Even though I’m sure this prince is an expert on American politics, this is clearly a response to the fact that Donald Trump has hammered Saudi Arabia’s manipulation of oil prices and has made oil production one of the biggest talking points of his campaign.
By all accounts, this prince is a really bad guy who hates Israel and doesn’t really care for America too much either.
It is probably a good thing to have a guy like this oppose you so Trump is likely encouraged by tweets like this.
If the polls are any indication, he’s doing something right.
In case you wondering about Trump’s general feelings about Saudi Arabia, here’s a hint.
