Dubai Golf Course Developer Says Donald Trump Partnership Is Safe

December 8, 2015

Is there anything he can’t say? Those assuming that Donald Trump’s latest inflammatory comments about Muslims would mean an end to his business deals in the Middle East got an answer this week.

Dubai’s DAMAC Properties, a company engaged in building a high-profile golf course with Trump’s name on it in the UAE, said that it would neither comment on nor boycott the controversial candidate, reports CNN Money. On Monday, Trump followed up suspect claims about Muslims’ behavior in the wake of 9/11 with a call for a flat-out ban on all Muslim immigration to the United States.

Many in the Middle East were not happy with Trump’s new position, particularly residents of Dubai, where Trump’s name and face are plastered on billboards across the city.

DAMAC Properties is a luxury developer that has partnered with Trump to build the Trump World Golf Club on the outskirts of Dubai. The club will include 160 upscale villas and an 18-hole golf course designed by Tiger Woods.
