As US presidential candidate Donald Trump calls for a moratorium on Muslims coming to the US, his business ventures in Muslim-majority countries are expanding.
Recently, Trump opened a $6 billion real estate development in Dubai that includes 100 villas overlooking a huge golf course. The development is touted as one of the most exclusive addresses in Dubai.
"Donald Trump will make money from anyone, he doesn't care who he is getting the money from," says Dean Obeidallah, a Muslim comic and writer for The Daily Beast.
According to Obeidallah, Trump is eyeing other Muslim countries, including Qatar and Saudi Arabia, to open up other big resorts.
"So when he is talking about Muslims and having issues with them and whether they are good or not, apparently he doesn't care if they are making money for him," says Obeidallah.

Obeidallah says he is heartened by the fact that both Republicans and Democrats publicly condemned Trump for his anti-Muslim comments.
"On some level it's going to bring us all together to say it's all of us versus ISIS," he says. "It's not all of us versus Islam."
