Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is running on a bold platform of protecting American workers and bringing jobs back.
Due to unfair trade deals and poor management by the Obama White House, American workers have been hurt in serious ways. That’s why Trump’s message is so popular.
Now, probably due to political reasons, the PGA announced they are moving the 2017 World Golf Championship from a Trump golf course in Miami, Florida to Mexico. Trump shot back at the PGA in a huge way!
However, Mr Finchem (of the PGA) insisted the decision to move the event to Mexico City from Florida, where it has been held for the past 55 years, was not political.
“From a golf standpoint we have no issues with Donald Trump. From a political standpoint we are neutral. PGA Tour has never been involved or cares to be involved in presidential politics,” he added.
The PGA Tour has signed a new seven-year sponsorship deal with Grupo Salinas, and the first WGC-Mexico Championship will held in March next year.
Mr Trump said the decision marked a “sad day for Miami, the US and the game of golf”.
“This decision only further embodies the very reason I am running for president of the United States,” he said.
The venue for the event has not been officially confirmed, but media reports say it will take place at the Club de Golf Chapultapec outside Mexico City.
Trump’s response was epic:
“I hope they have kidnapping insurance,” Mr Trump told Fox News.
This isn’t about improving relationships with Mexico. The PGA hosts plenty of events that aren’t on Trump-owned golf courses. This is about the PGA taking sides in the presidential elections. They should be ashamed for taking the event out of the country.
