Corporate America may be running away from President Donald Trump but at least one of his international business partners is standing by him.

Dubai (CNN Business)Corporate America may be running away from President Donald Trump but at least one of his international business partners is standing by him.

Hussain Sajwani, the chairman of property developer DAMAC, said he wants to expand his relationship with the Trump Organization despite the president's role in stoking a violent siege last week of the US Capitol.

DAMAC is Trump's partner on an 18-hole golf course and club in Dubai, which opened in 2017.

DAMAC is also building a second 18-hole golf course, the Trump World Golf Club, Dubai, the Trump Organization says on its website.

"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.

Social media platforms including Twitter (TWTR) and Facebook (FB) have suspended the president's accounts, and the PGA has canceled plans to play its 2022 championship at Trump's Bedminster golf course.

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.

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.
