US President Donald Trump lashed out at notions that he has connections to Saudi Arabia.
He tweeted “For the record, I have no financial interests in Saudi Arabia (or Russia, for that matter). Any suggestion that I have is just more FAKE NEWS (of which there is plenty)!”
The news comes as world leaders and high profile businesses have shunned a big investor conference in Saudi Arabia following the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Turkey.
Google, HSBC, Credit Suisse and Standard Chartered joined the boycott of the Saudi conference today. Other big names that have pulled out of the conference include Sotheby’s, Blackrock, Uber among others.
