U.S. President Donald Trump's sons will be in Dubai this weekend to open a new Trump branded golf course.
Eric Trump and Donald Trump Jr. will be the guests of honor at the official opening of Trump International Golf Club Dubai, according to an official invitation sent out by Damac Properties, the UAE-based developer of the project.
President Trump previously visited the site of the $6 billion development in 2014 with his daughter Ivanka. At the time, he said: "I think there's great, great future in Dubai."
The US President has close personal ties with Damac's billionaire chairman, Hussain Sajwani. During a New Year's Eve speech at his home in Florida, Trump called Sajwani and his family, who were attending his party, "beautiful people."
Sajwani has also highlighted his close personal ties with the Trumps, telling NBC News: "We've been in New York having lunch and dinners with them regularly."
But before taking office in January, Trump announced that he turned down a new $2 billion deal business deal with Sajwani. Trump made the decision as he was faced with intense media scrutiny due to his international business empire and the many conflicts of interest it could cause.
Trump's global business empire, which is now managed by his children, includes more than 500 companies with ties to more than 20 countries, according to Bloomberg.
Regionally, in addition to the UAE, Trump has business interests in Qatar, Turkey and Israel. The US president also opened eight companies in Saudi Arabia at the beginning of his presidential campaign, but those were shut down before he took office.
Despite his repeated calls and efforts to ban Muslims from entering the US, Trump's new Dubai golf course and his other regional business ventures demonstrate that he's definitely not interested in banning Muslim money anytime soon.
