Mohammed bin Salman Chides Donald Trump For His Careless Remarks

Published

on

The Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) said that the US President Donald Trump’s assertion that the Saudi King Salman would not stay in power for two weeks without the support of the United States was wrong. Mohammed bin Salman, popularly called MBS asserted this in an interview with Bloomberg.

“Saudi Arabia existed even before the United States,” said Prince Mohammed bin Salman. “It has existed since 1744, as I recall, it is more than 30 years more than the United States of America.” “It will be somewhere else 2,000 years before Saudi Arabia, perhaps, will be something to threaten. So I think this is wrong,” he concluded, referring to Trump’s words.

“You see, we have to be aware that every friend will say good things and bad things,” said Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud. “So it’s not like 100% of your friends say good things about you, even about your family members “Misunderstanding happens. We put it in this category.”

MBS also said that under President Barack Obama, the United States pursued a policy in the Middle East that was contrary to the objectives of Saudi Arabia. However, Riyadh has managed to protect its interests, he added. “In the end, we succeeded, and the United States under the leadership of President Obama failed, for example, in Egypt,” said the Saudi prince.

On Tuesday, speaking to his supporters in Mississippi, US President Donald Trump said that Saudi Arabia’s King Salman bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud would not have been able to stay in power for two weeks without the military assistance provided by the United States. In his speech, which was broadcast by local news broadcasters, he once again spoke of the need for other countries to reimburse the cost of the presence of American troops in their territory, among others he mentioned Saudi Arabia.
