Saudi Prince gives Trump benefit of the doubt
Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal was fighting with Donald Trump on Twitter earlier this year — now he is offering a handshake to the US president-elect.
“My spat with him came when he attacked my religion, Islam,” Prince Alwaleed said. “He is now taking a conciliatory note and wants to be more inclusive, so that is welcomed by me, the Arab and Islamic worlds.”
Prince Alwaleed said it was incumbent to “give him the benefit of the doubt”.
“At least let’s give him some time to see where he is headed,” he said, Financial Times reported.
