(PatrioticPost.com)- Elon Musk watched the final game between France and Argentina at the World Cup final in Qatar alongside Jared Kushner, the son-in-law of former President Donald Trump.
During the dramatic final from Lusail City on Sunday, which saw Argentina win the championship on penalties after a 3-3 draw, pictures of Musk and Kushner went viral over the weekend.
The two seemed to be in an opulent suite, with many Middle Eastern men wearing traditional attire.
Musk shared a video of the moment the victorious Argentines stormed onto the field to celebrate with his followers on Twitter.
In other online videos, Musk shook hands with spectators directly beneath the luxury box at Qatar’s Lusail Stadium.
According to a New York Times report from April, Kushner received a $2 billion investment from a fund run by Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, who serves as de facto ruler of Saudi Arabia.
Trump’s oldest daughter’s husband, Kushner, reportedly obtained the loans just six months after leaving the White House, where he served as his father-in-law’s top adviser for four years.
Kushner is said to have developed close ties to bin Salman, the controversial young royal suspected of planning the brutal 2018 murder of US-based dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi, during his time in the White House.
Khashoggi, reportedly murdered by Saudi agents while paying a consular visit to the country’s diplomatic mission in Istanbul, has denied any involvement on the part of Bin Salman.
Musk is connected to Saudi money as well. He secured funding from Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal bin Abdulaziz Al-Saudi after declaring his intention to buy Twitter and take it private earlier this year.
Alwaleed is one of the company’s largest shareholders.
The Saudi royal who runs Kingdom Holding Company disapproved of the proposal in the days following Musk’s announcement of his $54.20 per share April buyout offer, tweeting: “I don’t believe that the proposed offer by @elonmusk ($54.20) comes close to the intrinsic value of @Twitter given its growth prospects.”
But Musk, who was working to secure funding for his takeover bid, seemed to have won over the Saudi prince because he tweeted a few days later: “Great to connect with you, my ‘new’ friend. For Twitter to grow and fulfill its enormous potential, I think you’ll make a great leader.”
