Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman, MBS, has met with some of the United State’s top leaders in business and politics in his two-week-long tour of the USA, but a leaked itinerary shows he may have saved the best for last - Oprah.

In early April, MBS will finish up his tour on the West Coast where he is sheduled to be the guest of honor at a Los Angeles dinner hosted by Endeavor Chief Executive Officer Ari Emanuel - a firm that Saudi Arabia has just bought a $400 million stake in.

On Tuesday in New York City, MBS reportedly met with Henry Kissinger, former president Bill Clinton and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, Senator Chuck Schumer, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres and businessman and former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg. MBS was also reportedly set to meet with Jewish leaders, with groups represented at the meeting including AIPAC, the Conference of Presidents, Jewish Federations of North America, ADL, AJC and B'nai B'rith.

MBS met U.S. President Donald Trump in the Oval Office late last week, in a meeting that sparked headlines for the awkward interaction between the leaders as Trump boasted of U.S. arms sales to the Saudis.

Other notable media meetings include dinner with The New York Times’ Thomas Friedman, Rupert Murdoch, The Atlantic’sJeffrey Goldberg, meetings with the editorial boards of the New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times and San Francisco Chronicle, as well as interviews with Time and Vanity Fair.

Current government officials on MBS’ schedule include CIA director and soon to be Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Vice President Mike Pence, Jared Kushner and Defense Secretary James Mattis.

MBS will meet business leaders including Bill Gates, Elon Musk, Peter Thiel, Tim Cook of Apple and the CEOs of Microsoft, Boeing, Amazon, Uber, the Walt Disney Company and Lockheed Martin.
