Hussein Sajwani is a billionaire developer who lives in Dubai. As a titan in the field of real estate he has hopes of furthering his business relationship with the real estate firm owned by Donald Trump. Trump and Sajwani have worked together before and made billions in sales together. One of their projects was the building of luxury villas on the International Golf Club owned by Trump.
There have been concerns voiced as to a possible conflict of interest. For this reason Trump has stated he will not be starting any new deals in business while he is in office. Sajwani made a statement to NBC News that his connection to the Trump family is more than just business. His relationship with Trump also involves his children Eric, Ivanka and Donald Jr. Sajwani believes there will not be any problem or conflict arising from the continued growth, expansion and maintenance of his business relationship with Trump.
The wives of Trump and Sajwani also enjoy a friendship. They email one another and often have lunch or dinner together. They have both enjoyed the hospitality at each others homes as well. Sajwani says they enjoy working together and it is so much more than just cold business. Eric, Ivanka and Donald Jr. have all been involved with the brand to some extent. They have dealt with wealthy foreigners with links to politicians who wield power. Politicians from Turkey, Canada, Central Asia and South America. Even Ivanka has had social media posts about business meetings since 2010. The posts concerned meetings in 13 different countries.
Sajwani spoke of how Ivanka was pregnant and working until a few days before the delivery. He was in New York at the time and could not believe she talked business with him on the phone then went back to work shortly afterwards. He met with Trump before the election concerning the opening of his new hotel in Washington. He was under the impression that if Trump won the election his business dealings would be taken over by the next generation.
