Hussain Sajwani and DAMAC’s Relationship with Donald Trump
Hussain Sajwani, a native of Dubai, the owner of DAMAC Properties, and who is likewise considered as one of the billionaire real estate developer from the desert region, is intending to improve his business relationship with the Trump Organization. Hussain Sajwani and the Trump Organization have previously made a business deal in the past where they collaborated on the Trump International Golf Club. The site where the said Golf Club has been erected now also sees luxury villas that are worth and have been retailed at $2 billion.
When Donald Trump won the presidential elections in the United States, he assured everyone concerned that he will not be making any new personal business arrangements during his tenure as the United States’ President. His announcement was made in order to pacify concerns about conflicts of interest while he is still holding official office.
Hussain Sajwani on the other hand clarified that DAMAC’s and his connection with Donald Trump extends beyond his political reign as president since he has no personal interests in politics himself. He explained that Donald Trump’s sons Eric Trump and Donald Trump, Jr, including daughter Ivanka Trump will manage their business in behalf of their father. He also said that his wife and President Trump’s wife are good friends.
With their affluent upbringing, it is not surprising that the three children of Donald Trump have the trademark of wealthy foreigners that have connections with prominent politicians from Central Asia, South America, Turkey, and Canada to name a few. So, it is not surprising that Ivanka Trump have posted several of her business meetings on her social media account from 2010 onwards in at least 13 countries around the world.
Hussain Sajwani even remembered that when Invanka Trump was pregnant, she was deeply involved in the project until even a few days prior to giving birth. And after giving birth, Ivanka requested his presence in New York to discuss business. He said that his dealings with the Trump Organization are purely done through his company DAMAC.
Thus, Hussain Sajwani and DAMAC Properties deals business not directly with Donald Trump, the President, at the moment while he is the incumbent head of state, but with the Trump Organization managed by his children.
