The golf course developer who partnered with Donald Trump for an 18-hole golf course in Dubai defended the president-elect against allegations that he is anti-Muslim, according to CNN Money.

"He is in no way discriminative," Hussain Sajwani said. "He doesn't discriminate against sex, religion, or anything else."

According to CNN, Sajwani did not cut ties with Trump for calling for a Muslim ban, and said that his company's sticking by the president-elect was a "wise decision." "We stick to our commitments, regardless of the political, geographical, or any other issues," he said.

After Trump called for a ban on Muslims, his name was taken off a wall at the entrance to Akoya, the 42-million square foot golf course development, which includes a clubhouse, apartments, and villas in the $9.5 million price range. Sajwani said that was just a maintenance issue, CNN reports.

"No one will believe us. That week, we had to do maintenance on the stone work. We brought it down, and brought it back in less than 48 hours."

The developer has worked with the real-estate mogul since they met in 2005, CNN reports. They initially had a plan to build twin towers in Dubai, but then struck a golf course deal. According to Sajwani, the course should open in the first quarter of 2017, and a second course is in the works for 2018.

Sajwani told CNN he is fortunate to have two projects in the works with the president-elect of the United States: "I always say sometimes in life you work hard, but you need some luck."

Trump's work with Sajwani may be bringing in new investors to Dubai. AMEInfo reported that American real estate investors are following Trump's lead and looking at projects there.
