Donald Trump trolled, again: ‘Need a third bailout?’ Saudi Prince Alwaleed asks

Donald Trump clearly has a lot to learn on how to run his Twitter handle. Yet again, the real estate tycoon was trolled by Saudi Prince Alwaleed.

Donald Trump, the real estate tycoon who is hoping to be the 45th President of the United States, got into yet another Twitter battle with Saudi prince Alwaleed bin Talal.

This time, the fight erupted after Trump tweeted out an image – a poorly photoshopped one at that – of Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly ‘posing’ with Alwaleed with a caption claiming that the Saudi prince is a co-owner of the news channel.

Alwaleed was quick to respond to Trump, reminding him that he had already bailed him out twice and maybe a third time was round the corner.


In February last year, the Kingdom announced that the Saudi prince had reduced his stake in NewsCorp from 6.6 per cent to 1 per cent.

Alwaleed tweeted out a link to news reports detailing the cases in which he came to the rescue of Trump. Be it the Plaza Hotel in New York or a swanky yacht.  Read that here.

The last week has seen an agitated Trump take on Fox News after he decided not to participate in the GOP debate reasoning that he did not get along with the channel’s anchor Kelly. The day of the debate, Trump stepped-up his attack tweeting: “I refuse to call Megyn Kelly a bimbo, because that would not be politically correct. Instead I will only call her a lightweight reporter!” Read more about that story here.

This, however, isn’t the first time Trump has got into a Twitter fight with the Saudi prince.

Trump’s anti-Muslim comments forced Alwaleed to call out Trump as a ‘disgrace to America’.

In June 2015, Trump tweeted to a parody account of Alwaleed, forcing his son Khaled to troll the real estate baron.

Clearly, Trump has a lot of learning to do when it comes to social media, specially if you plan on running for President.

He had this to say about President Obama in 2014.

He also had relationship advice for Robert Pattinson
