A Saudi prince may have just claimed the throne after a war of words with Donald Trump once again on Twitter.

Prince Alwaleed bin Talal stated on the social media website that he’s bailed the billionaire out twice – and suggested the GOP presidential frontrunner might need his help a third time.

The altercation was initiated by Trump, who retweeted a badly Photoshopped image showing the prince with Fox News host Megyn Kelly, calling him a co-owner of the network:

However, according to CNN his stake is worth 1% only.

The prince’s tweet included news stories showing he bought Trump’s yacht in 1991, which had been turned over to creditors when he was $900 million in debt, reports Buzzfeed.

He also included a link to a story which claimed Alwaleed bin Talal was part of the group that bought New York City’s Plaza Hotel from Trump in 1995 in a ‘bailout’ valued at $325 million.

The two clashed on Twitter last year when Prince Talal reacted to the Republican presidential frontrunner’s proposal that all Muslims should be temporarily barred from entering the United States.

    @Jibran:

    Not exactly, just two amazingly rich yet nothing to do with their time guys out to insult each other. Difference between them is that prince convinces people with money and trump with politics of fear to manipulate.

    Tho yes royal days are numbered one way or another.Recommend
