Dates on Trump File reflect when something happens, not when it's first reported.
On or shortly before August 25, Saudi billionaire Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal tells reporters that he saved Donald Trump from bankruptcy twice. Trump, he says, is a “bad and ungrateful person.”
In an interview with Turkey’s Hurriyet newspaper, the prince said he bought Trump’s hotels after they were acquired by the banks which demanded he repay his debts.
The yacht he used to come to Antalya, southwest of Turkey, is one he bought from Trump when he was threatened with bankruptcy.
Earlier, the Saudi prince called on Trump to immediately withdraw from the presidential race describing him as a disgrace to the Republican Party and America.Middle East Monitor
Trump sold the Trump Princess yacht to bin Talal in 1991. Four years later, he bought a controlling stake in Trump Plaza New York.
