@realDonaldtrumpTrump’s tweet.Billionaire Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal fired back at Donald Trump on Thursday after the Republican presidential front-runner promoted a fake photo of him to attack Fox News.
Trump shared a photo on Twitter that purported to show Alwaleed, Alwaleed’s sister, and Fox News host Megyn Kelly.
The text on the photo claimed that Alwaleed was a “co-owner” of Fox News. The network is hosting the Thursday-night debate that Trump is boycotting.
Alwaleed, who reportedly once bought Trump’s yacht, tweeted back at Trump while claiming to have “bailed” him out multiple times:

The two billionaires also exchanged Twitter blows last month.
Alwaleed wrote that Trump’s proposal to bar Muslims from entering the US was “a disgrace” and called on the real-state mogul to withdraw from the presidential race:
.@realDonaldTrumpYou are a disgrace not only to the GOP but to all America.Withdraw from the U.S presidential race as you will never win.

Trump responded by calling Alwaleed “dopey”:
