Trump on losing PGA golf event to Mexico: ‘I hope they have kidnapping insurance’
Donald Trump’s grip on golf has been significantly loosened, with the US PGA Tour confirming the first World Golf Championship event of the year will no longer be played at the US Republican presidential candidate’s Doral venue. The tournament, formerly the WGC‑Cadillac Championship, will move to Mexico City from 2017.
Speaking on Fox News, Trump offered a typical response to the news. “I just heard the PGA Tour is taking their tournament out of Miami and moving it to Mexico,” he said. “They’re moving it to Mexico City which, by the way, I hope they have kidnapping insurance. They’re moving it to Mexico City and I’m saying: ‘What’s going on here?’ It is so sad when you look at what’s going on with our country.”
