While some may have thought President Trump’s statements about Muslims during the campaign primary were indicative about his relationship with the Arab and Muslim community as a whole, many would probably be surprised to know he has a very good working relationship with DAMAC owner Hussain Sajwani.
Sajwani is a real estate investor and developer who has undertaken magnificent building projects across the United Arab Emirates and the Middle East as a whole. Hussain Sajwani family and President Trump have worked together as business partners in the buying and construction of various hotels and golf courses, and Sajwani even expressed after Trump’s election that he would like to make more real estate deals.
Sajwani not only knows Donald Trump well but has spoken on a personal level with his family.
Hussein Sajwani started his own real estate company, DAMAC Properties back in 2002 and it’s become a leader in property constructions and sales across the UAE. Sajwani is an expert in sales and marketing and has built strong connections to clients of all industries.

DAMAC Properties has designed some of the most exquisite apartment housing and vacation resorts. The funding for many of these developments has come from DICO Investments, a UAE private equity firm that has facilitated many mergers and acquisitions.
Hussain Sajwani has a formal degree from the University of Washington and actually began in the oil industry. His first professional leadership position was at Abu Dhabi National Oil Company’s subsidiary GASCO where he managed contracts for various drilling companies.
And prior to going into real estate, Sajwani actually opened a major food service and catering business whose customers included construction companies, military divisions, schools and colleges.
Sajwani also happens to own shares in one of the UAE’s only tile manufacturing companies, Al Anwar Ceramic Tiles and he also has interests in Arab securities company Al Jazeira.
