Sajwani and Trump: A Controversial Partnership

Dubai-based billionaire developers, the Hussain Sajwani family is hoping to form a business relationship with the Trump Organization, the real estate firm owned by Donald Trump. And it looks like this is something that will be happening. The Damac owner has been in talks with the new president even before he was president. Trump and Sajwani recently finalized their partnership at the Trump International Golf Club. Because of Trump’s highest position in U.S. politics, it is very natural that there should be some naysayers. There has been much criticism that this will mean a huge conflict of interest for the new president. However, Trump assures his critics that he will not be in any way involved in future business deals in the partnership. All such dealings will be fully managed by Trump’s three children, Ivanka, Eric, and Donald Jr.

Each of these three are themselves very powerful and influential in the international business community, with connections to top level politicians and business leaders all over the world. This strategy is not new or isolated to this one business relationship. While he was still a presidential candidate, Trump and his children decided that if he did end up becoming president, he would have to hand to operations of his business empire over to them. Fortunately, Sajwani has already been on very friendly terms with the kids. He knows them well personally and professionally and has absolutely no qualms about working just with them.

None of this has done that much to quiet the skepticism of Trump’s business presence in the Middle East while he is our acting president. To help fight the skepticism, Sajwani assures that in these dealings he will stay away from any discussion of political issues or positions. It remains to be seen if there will be problems that arise because of this seeming conflict of interest.
