Saudi business magnate Prince Alwaleed bin Talal congratulated Donald Trump on his US presidential victory, almost a year after the two clashed bitterly on Twitter. 
The prince wrote on his twitter page:

In December 2015 Bin Talal had called Trump a "disgrace" and demanded he withdraw from the election after the property developer's pledge to ban Muslims entry into the US raised hackles in the Middle East.
The next day, Trump issued a withering riposte: "Dopey Prince @Alwaleed_Talal wants to control our US politicians with daddy's money. Can't do it when I get elected."
