The Wall St Journal reports that sources inside the Saudi government have claimed that the country’s leader Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman privately mocks gaffes made by Joe Biden, and has questioned his mental fitness to be U.S. President.
The anonymous sources also suggested that MBS was less than impressed with Biden during his trip to Saudi Arabia earlier this year.

Prince Faisal, a member of the House of Saud, disputed the report, stating “These allegations made by anonymous sources are entirely false.”
“The kingdom’s leaders have always held the utmost respect for U.S. presidents, based on the kingdom’s belief in the importance of having a relationship based on mutual respect,” Faisal further claimed.
Saudi recently confirmed that Biden tried to convince them to cut oil prices until after the mid term elections.
