During a ten-minute speech delivered to 800 guests at his New Year’s Eve party in Florida, Donald Trump called the press “garbage,” said the “beautiful” generals he’s met with “make Tom Cruise look like dirt,” and repeatedly praised a Dubai-based business partner, according to CNN.
Hussain Sajwani, whose company built Trump International Course Dubai, was at the party with his family, whom Trump called the “the most beautiful people.” The billionaire’s company, DAMAC Properties, is set to open a Tiger Woods–designed golf course with the Trump Organization in 2018.
Trump’s reference to Sajwani illustrates, once again, his difficulty separating his political life from his business.
The developer told NBC News that Trump’s election is “good news” for his company, which he expects to “benefit from the strength of the brand going forward.” He said that he expects to work with Trump’s sons to expand and grow his company’s relationship with the Trump Organization.
Danielle Brian, executive director of the Project for Government Oversight, told NBC that Trump’s clearly going to be a president with divided loyalties.
