Don’t expect a new Trump Tower in Saudi Arabia anytime soon: Saudi billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal has publicly denounced Donald Trump for his call to ban Muslims from entering the U.S.

“You are a disgrace not only to the GOP but to all America,” Prince Alwaleed, the chairman of Kingdom Holding, wrote on his Twitter account. “Withdraw from the U.S presidential race as you will never win,” he added.

Naturally, Trump fired back, tweeting:

“Dopey Prince @Alwaleed_Talal wants to control our U.S. politicians with daddy’s money. Can’t do it when I get elected. #Trump2016”

But Trump’s comments have already cost him business in the Middle East. On Thursday, Dubai real estate firm Damac, which is in the process of developing a $6 billion golf complex with Trump, removed his name and image from the property, according to NBC.. [NBC]Christopher Cameron
