Donald Trump Jr. on Saturday played down a report that he attended a meeting in August 2016 that included an emissary for two wealthy Arab princes who were keen to help Trump win the election.

The New York Times reported that Trump Jr. met with Lebanese-American businessman George Nader — representing princes from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates — along with Israeli social media specialist Joel Zamel and Republican donor and private security contractor Erik Prince.

The article goes on to state the following:

The meeting, which took place in August, reportedly included a multimillion-dollar proposal for a “social media manipulation effort” to help Trump beat Democratic rival Hillary Clinton in November.

An attorney for Trump Jr. said in a statement that his client recalled the meeting, but was not interested in the pitch.

“Prior to the 2016 election, Donald Trump Jr. recalls a meeting with Eric Prince, George Nader, and another individual who may be Joel Zamel,” Alan Futerfas said in a statement.

“They pitched Mr. Trump Jr. on a social media platform or marketing strategy. He was not interested and that was the end of it.”
