Hussain Sajwani and Donald Trump have a friendly and collaborative relationship with one another. They already have plans to co-operate the Trump International Golf Club in the UAE. It is a fitting place to put the golf club because luxury villas have been accumulating $2 billion in sales.
Hussain Sajwani family and Donald Trump’s family gets along just fine. Sajwani says that his “wife and Ivanka are very good friends,”
“They send emails. She’s been here to my house. We’ve been in New York having lunch and dinners with them regularly. And, you know, you enjoy working with somebody — it’s not only cold business relation.”
Since Trump became president of the United States, his children (Ivanka, Eric and Donald Jr.) have taken over talks with Sajwani about the golf club to avoid conflict of interest. Learn more: https://www.youtube.com/HussainSajwaniOfficial
