Make Golf Great Again

Presidential Candidate Donald Trump Tours U.S. Border In Texas

A PGA Golf tournament that would ordinarily be held at the Trump National Doral Miami resort will instead be held in Mexico City next year.

Why? Because chief sponsor Cadillac is not willing to fund the tournament, or anything else for that matter, on Donald Trump's property.

Naturally, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump didn't take kindly to the news. This, he says, is why he's running for president; to make golf great again.

"Can you believe it?" Trump asked the crowd at a rally [in Sacramento] Wednesday evening. "Think of it: They moved the PGA Tour — moved the World Golf Championship — from Miami, where they're furious, to Mexico City. Not good."

He continued: "But that's okay. Folks, it's all going to be settled, you vote for Donald Trump as president. If I become your president, this stuff is all going to stop."

Elect Donald Trump so he can bring the golf tournament back to his resort in Miami.

I imagine President Trump's handling of major sporting events would be not unlike Vladimir Putin's. Trump and his cronies would pocket millions of dollars at the expense of safety and transparency. He may even make state-sanctioned doping great again.

    “…it’s going to stop.”
    And how the hell are you going to do that MFer? It’s the free market deciding that they don’t like you.

    Donald Trump’s tantrums have become predictable and boring. He used to have the best tantrums, but now they’re weak.

    I don’t want this man in a position of power and authority.

  • He really thinks he can do stuff like that–he has no understanding of what the Executive Branch is supposed to do.

      I think he would try.

      Honestly, I think he (like Palin) is a lot smarter than he lets on. The stupidity is an act for the people who are actually stupid – and who eat it up.

      He knows he can’t really do the things he’s promising, but it doesn’t matter. He knows that his supporters don’t know that. He knows that if he promises to (somehow) turn the tide back to a fantasy heyday that never existed, they’ll buy whatever he’s selling.
