Adnan Khashoggi was an infamous multi-billionaire arms dealer and deep state power broker. He was positively fingered in multiple deep political events such as Iran–Contra and the Lockheed bribery scandal.[1]

Family

Adnan Khashoggi was born in Mecca, the son of Mohammad Khashoggi, who was King Abdul Aziz Al Saud's personal doctor.[2] His family is of Turkish origin.[3] Adnan Khashoggi's sister was author Samira Khashoggi who married businessman Mohamed Al-Fayed and was the mother of Dodi Fayed.[4] Another sister, Soheir Khashoggi, is a well-known Arab writer (Mirage, Nadia's Song, Mosaic). Adnan Khashoggi was the uncle of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who is believed to have been murdered at the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul on 2 October 2018.[5]

Yacht sold to Donald Trump

In 1988, Khashoggi sold his $90million superyacht Nabila to US businessman Donald Trump.[6] Forced to sell it for a mere $30 million, Khashoggi did not want Trump to keep the name Nabila, because it was his daughter’s name. Trump had no intention, ever, of keeping the name. He had already decided to rename it the Trump Princess. But for some reason Khashoggi thought Trump meant to retain the name, and he knocked a million dollars off the asking price to ensure the name change. Accepting the deduction, Trump said:

“Khashoggi was a great broker and a lousy businessman. He understood the art of bringing people together and putting together a deal better than almost anyone — all the bullshitting part, of talk and entertainment — but he never knew how to invest his money. If he had put his commissions into a bank in Switzerland, he’d be a rich man today, but he invested it, and he made lousy choices.”[7]
