The Career and Philanthropy of Hussain Sajwani

The Hussain Sajwani family has been in the lime light since President Donald Trump invited them to his celebration party after he won the elections. While giving his speech, he did not forget to thank the muslim family, saying that they were the most beautiful people he had the privilege of knowing.

For those wondering how Donald Trump managed to have Muslim friends even after making public his hatred for the Muslims, Hussain Sajwani is not his political friend.

In many interviews, this question has been raised to Hussain but he has insisted that his friendship with Donald Trump is only business-focused. He continues to talk of how he loves to use big brands to make his properties sell. In the past, he has branded his properties with some of the biggest international brands including Buggati and Versace.

He said that in doing business with Donald Trump, it was all about what his brand could offer. Trump is known as a leading developer of golf courses. And, because luxury is his specialty, Sajwani only works with powerful brands that connotes opulence.
