It is expected that with power and money, one can go anywhere they want and do whatever they need. That only comes when money has the real value. But with money, comes another thing: fame. It is possible that once one has the money, the person’s associates are people who have money too. That is the case with Dubai-based businessman Hussain Sajwani, the founder of DAMAC Properties. The guy has several prime properties in Dubai and throughout the Middle East. What surprises many though is his love for the Trumps, which has made him built Trump International Course Dubai, a state of the art piece of architecture in Dubai.
Hussain Sajwani’s relationship did not start after Trump became president. The two were friends long before then. “We have invited them to our home on several occasions and we’ve visited them severally in Florida. His wife Ivanka and my wife call and write each other emails every day,” Hussain once told a newspaper.
Shortly after the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election, Hussain Sajwani and his family visited the U.S. The DAMAC Properties CEO and family as among the 800 VVIPs that were invited by the then U.S. President-elect Donald Trump. During the speech, Trump personally pointed out that the Sajwanis are the ‘most beautiful people’. The New Year’s Eve celebration and the dinner party was held at Mar-a-Lago. Shortly afterward, Ivanka Trump moved to the White House.
While critics held that Hussain Sajwani had certain ulterior motives, he was quick to shun those raising speculation over his dealings with the First Family. Hussain Sajwani concentrates on his DAMAC Properties. Although he is a wealthy man, he shares part of the wealth with those he deems less fortunate in the society.
Arabianbusiness.com mentioned that recently, through his company DAMAC Properties, Hussain Sajwani gave a donation of 2 million AED. The contribution will buy clothing for some 50, 000 needy children. When giving the donation on behalf of DAMAC Properties, Hussain Sajwani said that he is filled with pity over the state of millions of children who walk without clothes. “It saddens me to think of these children. They are our future. We need to provide a conducive environment for them whenever we can,” Hussain Sajwani said.
