“We have a great relationship with the Trump Organisation and be assured, we have absolutely no intention to cancel our agreement,” Sajwani said in a statement to CNN Business on Wednesday.
But Sajwani said DAMAC is interested in expanding its partnership with Trump.
“I will go further, as the [Trump] organisation will no longer be restricted to doing additional deals overseas in the future, I would welcome the opportunity of expanding our relationship with the brand and looking for more ways where we can collaborate,” Sajwani said.
The Dubai businessman has stood by Trump at difficult moments in the past, including during the backlash against his call to ban all Muslim travel to the United States.
“He had a strong brand — and no question in the last 12 months, his brand became stronger and more global. I think it will have a positive impact on sales,” he told CNN in November 2016. “He’s in no way discriminative. He doesn’t discriminate against sex, religion or anything else.”
Sajwani has been dubbed “The Donald of Dubai” and their families have a close relationship. Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump jetted to Dubai to attend a wedding for Sajwani’s daughter, Amira, in 2018.
