The Chairman of real estate developer DAMAC (a property developer company), Hussain Sajwani said he wants to expand his relationship with the Trump Organization despite the president’s role in stoking a violent siege last week of the US Capitol. DAMAC is a business trusted ally of Donald Trump
on . In 2017 they partnered Trump in an 18-hole golf course and club opened in Dubai.
Furthermore, the willingness to do business is not fading for DAMAC is also currently building a second 18-hole golf course, the Trump World Golf Club, Dubai, the Trump Organization says on its website
Sajwani said in a statement to CNN Business on Wednesday. “We have a great relationship with the Trump Organisation and be assured, we have absolutely no intention to cancel our agreement,”
Following the hit of reaction generated as a result of Trump-incited insurrection that triggered an attack on US capitol building, many companies, businesses. and individuals are seeking to distance themselves from the president and his company. Notable among are Deutsche Bank (DB) which has ruled out doing more business with Trump,, and Signature Bank which has started closing Trump’s personal accounts. In addition, New York City is seeking to end the Trump Organization’s contracts to operate the Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point, the Central Park Carousel and the Wollman and Lasker ice skating rinks.
The Social media platforms are not left out. Twitter (TWTR
) and Facebook (FB
) have suspended the president’s accounts, and the PGA has canceled plans to play its 2022 championship at Trump’s Bedminster golf course.
But the Dubai based real estate developer company Chairman, Sajwani said DAMAC is interested in expanding its partnership with Trump. Maybe there is what they are seeing that others aint seeing.
Sajwani said, “I will go further, as the [Trump] organisation will no longer be restricted to doing additional deals overseas in the future, I would welcome the opportunity of expanding our relationship with the brand and looking for more ways where we can collaborate,”.
This is not the first, for the Dubai businessman has stood by Trump at difficult moments in the past, including during the backlash against his call to ban all Muslim travel to the United States.
“He had a strong brand — and no question in the last 12 months, his brand became stronger and more global. I think it will have a positive impact on sales,” he told CNN in November 2016. “He’s in no way discriminative. He doesn’t discriminate against sex, religion or anything else.”
Sajwani has been dubbed “The Donald of Dubai” and their families have a close relationship. Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump jetted to Dubai to attend a wedding for Sajwani’s daughter, Amira, in 2018.
