On Friday, December 11, the prince called the real estate mogul a “disgrace.”
VIA| GOP frontrunner Donald Trump continues to take slings and arrows for his idea of temporarily banning Muslims from immigrating to the U.S. because of global terrorism; and late last week, Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal added his voice to that criticism of Trump. But Trump had a one-line comeback to the Saudi prince’s attack that has supporters cheering.
On Friday, December 11, the prince tweeted out his slam on Trump, calling the real estate mogul a “disgrace.”
.@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.

Still, two days later, on Sunday, The Donald had a retort that some might say completely undercut the prince’s lashing.

Trump is correct when he says that the Saudis have refused to take in any refugees. The Saudis have made this policy, saying that Syrian immigrants have been barred entry due to security concerns.
Meanwhile, over a million have immigrated to various European countries, causing an overload on resources and much internal strife. In fact, Germany has experienced so many problems from taking in the immigrants that German Chancellor Angela Merkel is now saying she intends to begin scaling back the number of new immigrants.
Trump has gained a lot of support for his Muslim immigration policy idea, but even he has admitted that some of his Muslim friends are not supportive of his proposal.
Trump recently told CNN’s Jake Tapper that he has Muslim friends who told him that they are supportive of the fact that he has brought forward a discussion on radical Islam. But they don’t support his immigration ban.
“I mean, why would they support the ban?” Trump said. “But without the ban, you’re not going to make the point. You’re not going to be able to make the point.”
