“The Middle East, and especially the Gulf, has shown tremendous effort and growth in the real estate and property sectors in recent years. It is amazing what has been accomplished and I am jealous,” Trump said at the Middle East Facilities Management Association (MEFMA) conference.

“The GCC is now home to the tallest tower in the world, host to the World Cup in 2022, the first Ferrari Theme Park and the amazing Palm Jumeirah manmade island, among other incredible developments. It is really amazing what has been accomplished.”

Trump also emphasised that all these projects make the Gulf region an important player in the emerging world. More info
