Trump’s two eldest sons head to Dubai for business partner’s wedding

President Trump’s sons Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump are headed to Dubai to attend the lavish wedding of the daughter of Hussain Sajwani, a business partner for the Trump Organization in the United Arab Emirates.

CNN reports that Amira Sajwani works with her father as chief finance officer for DAMAC Properties, Hussain Sajwani’s real estate company, which partnered with the Trump Organization in the development of Trump International Golf Club, Dubai.

“On this visit, they will be spending time with the Sajwani Family, the incredible developers behind DAMAC properties and will be visiting the team at Trump International Golf Club, Dubai which opened to rave reviews in February 2017,” a spokeswoman for the Trump Organization told CNN.

“Don Jr. & Eric will also be checking in on the progress of the Trump World Golf Club, Dubai, a Tiger Woods design that is currently under construction,” the spokeswoman added.

Trump told reporters in January 2017 that he turned down a deal with Hussain Sajwani over potential conflicts of interest that same month.

“Over the weekend, I was offered $2 billion to do a deal in Dubai with a very, very, very amazing man, a great, great developer from the Middle East, Hussain, DAMAC, a friend of mine, great guy,” he said last year. “And I was offered $2 billion to do a deal in Dubai — a number of deals and I turned it down.”

The Trump Organization’s deals with foreign investors have raised questions about possible Emoluments Clause violations, a section of the Constitution that prohibits gifts to government officials.

Trump declined to divest from his businesses upon taking the White House last year, instead placing them into a trust operated by his two adult sons.
