Hussain Sajwani Plans To Do More Business With The Trumps

The real estate guru, Hussain Sajwani, has a close relationship with President Donald Trump. They have worked together on different projects. The two, who celebrated the New Year’s Eve together, partnered to develop the Trump Golf Club where luxury villas made close to $2 billion in sales.

Owing to concerns of possible conflict of interest, the new President promised not to do business while serving the people of America. This does not mean the end of their friendship since Hussain’s relationship with Donald Trump extends to his three children.

While talking to NBC, Hussain Sajwani said that he would still partner with Trump’s children to expand and grow their businesses. He added that his wife is a close friend of Ivanka, Trump’s daughter, and they visit each other often.

The children have marketed the brand to affluent foreigners from Canada, Turkey, South America and Asia. Hussain met Trump during his launch of the Washington Hotel. After interacting, he became aware that once he won the election, he would hand over the management of his businesses to his children. Read more: Meet Our Baord | DAMAC Properties

During the New Year’s Eve celebration, the president recognized Hussain and his family, calling them “the most beautiful people.” Sajwani said that their brand would continue to be stronger.
