Trump’s legendary ego has led him once again to embarrass himself. Except that he’s not embarrassed.
The Donald thinks it’s fine that he publicly said recently that most Mexicans that enter the USA are drug dealers or rapists.
These kinds of idiotic comments obviously affect his wacky campaign for President of the USA, but do they affect his standing in the golf community? Trump owns several courses in the USA, and one in Puerto Rico, which host PGA and Senior PGA Tour events.
With Univision TV, NBC, and Macy’s severing ties with Trump over his inflammatory remarks, one wonders if the executives in professional golf will make any changes to the scheduling of events at his courses.
The most offensive comment I’ve heard him say to Golf World’s Tim Rosaforte is, “I have Mexicans and South Americans working for me all over the country, and believe me, they love me, and I love them.” Ya Think??

Univision. NBCUniversal. Macy’s. They’ve all severed ties with 2016 presidential candidate Donald Trump over remarks he made about immigration and Mexicans. The two broadcast powers have refused to air the Miss Universe pageant, which Trump partially owns, on July 12, and Mexican officials affiliated with the outdated pageant have said they won’t send a representative to the event.
Trump has responded in-kind with harsh remarks, particularly through Twitter, setting ablaze any potential future relationship with these companies.
However, while Trump has been battling on multiple fronts, he believed he has the backing of the golf world.
“I’ve had tremendous support from the golf world, because they all know I’m right,” Trump said to GolfWorld’s Tim Rosaforte.
I have been investing while everybody else was fleeing.”
Trump believes his record of employing people of Latin and Hispanic descent is a demonstration of nuance in his remarks about illegal immigration.
“I have Mexicans and South Americans working for me all over the country and believe me, they love me and I love them,” Trump said. “I think they’re great. I’ve had great support and I haven’t heard one negative thing and frankly I don’t expect to.”
