The phony image showed Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal with Megyn Kelly and implied the network was biased because of Bin Talal’s small stake in the company.

“Trump: You base your statement on photoshopped pics? I bailed you out twice; a 3rd time, maybe?” the Saudi prince tweeted.

The tweet also had a link to a BuzzFeed News story about Bin Talal purchasing a yacht from Trump in 1991, when the businessman was $900 million in debt. 

The two clashed in December, when Bin Talal called on Trump to withdraw from the presidential race, calling him "a disgrace not only to the GOP but to all America."

Bin Talal’s statement came after Trump’s controversial call for a ban on admitting Muslims into the U.S. 

Trump responded by calling Bin Talal “dopey” and accused him of trying to buy U.S. politicians with “daddy’s money.”
