Donald Trump appears on stage at the CNN Republican Presidential Debate in Simi Valley, California on September 16, 2015.

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — A Saudi billionaire blasted Trump on Twitter on Friday (December 11), calling the Republican presidential candidate a "disgrace not only to the GOP but to all America."

Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal's tweet comes after Trump's recent proposal to keep Muslims out of the U.S.

In addition to being a prince, Bin Talal owns 5 percent of Twitter — he's the second biggest shareholder behind former CEO and co-founder Evan Williams.

Bin Talal is also the 34th richest person in the world, according to Forbes. In July, he announced he would be donating his roughly $32 billion fortune to charity after his death.

Bin Talal's tweet on Friday also encouraged Trump to drop out of the race for the Republican nomination for president.

Trump's comments also earned the ire of another prominent businessman this week.

On Thursday, Qatar Airways CEO Akbar Al Baker told CNN's Richard Quest that Trump would "not be welcome" in Muslim countries because of his comments.

Al Baker also called him "naïve" and said Trump's comments weren't in his best interests -- Trump has investments in Muslim countries.
