Donald Trump has recently gone on the record as saying that if elected president he would ban all Muslims from traveling to the United States. However, this prejudice against Muslims does not seem to extend to the ones that make him rich.

Hussain Sajwani is the CEO of Damac Properties and his company is partnering with Trump to build a string of luxury golf courses and villas in Dubai.
Damac properties Vice President Neil McLaughlin said that Trump is, “one of the premium golf course operators in the world. As such we would not comment further on Mr. Trump’s personal or political agenda, nor comment on the internal American political debate scene.”
This partnership reveals Trump’s hypocrisy concerning Muslims and is merely the latest in a long stream of reminders that Trump’s so-called convictions are merely thinly veiled attempts to capitalize on the basest of human desires in his voters.
Fear and hate are the tools Trump has used to build his platform. He gives the dissatisfied someone to blame for their own problems and elevates them to a false sense of superiority by dehumanizing an entire class of people.
Sajwani is similarly despicable. He is willing to work for and with the man that spends his days disparaging his fellow Muslims around the world. All he cares about is the money.
If Trump truly believes that every Muslim around the world is determined to destroy the United States, then why is he creating lucrative business partnerships with them and pumping millions into their economies?
Trump is the worst kind of political opportunist, and he is also the worst kind of businessman.
Hopefully, Republicans will heedthe White House’s adviceand choose someone more appropriate for their candidate in 2016.
