Saudi Arabia would get its own nuclear bomb as soon as possible if Iran were to develop a nuclear weapon, Saudi Crown Prince Muhammed bin Salman (MsB) said in a CBS This Morning interview, to be broadcast in full on 60 minutes Sunday, March 18, the day before he meets President Donald Trump at the White House.
In his first American TV interview, the prince was questioned about having called Ayatollah Khamenei “the new Hitler” of the Middle East, he replied, “Absolutely.” The prince who is also the kingdom’s deputy prime minister and defense minister explained: “Because he wants to expand. He wants to create his own project in the Middle East very much like Hitler who wanted to expand at the time. Many countries around the world and in Europe did not realize how dangerous Hitler was until what happened, happened. I don’t want to see the same events happening in the Middle East.”
