PGA Strips Trump's National Golf Course Of 2022 PGA Championship by fergie001: 1:04pm On Jan 11
Donald Trump's National Golf Club course at Bedminster, New Jersey has been stripped of the 2022 Professional Golfers' Association (PGA) Championship.

Jim Richerson, President of the PGA of America, made this known via a video shared on the Organisation's site.

A Statement from the PGA of America on the 2022 PGA Championship

The PGA of America is nearly a 105-year-old Association with a perpetual mission to serve its member golf professionals and to grow the game.

Fulfilling that mission for all, enabling PGA professionals to do so today and in the future is of paramount importance to the PGA Board of Directors and our leaders.

It's become clear that conducting the PGA Championship at Trump's Bedminister will be detrimental to the PGA of America "brand" to deliver our many programmes and sustain the longevity of our mission.

Our Board has this, made the decision to exercise our right to terminate the contract to hold the 2022 PGA Championship at Trump's Bedminister.

It was a decision made to ensure the PGA of America and the PGA professionals can continue to lead and grow our great game for decades to come.

Thank you for your continued support and passion for the game we all love.

PGA of America

A position re-echoed by Seth Waugh, PGA of America's CEO.

“We find ourselves in a political situation not of our making... given the tragic events of Wednesday, we could no longer hold it at Bedminster. The damage could have been irreparable. The only real course of action was to leave."

SOURCE

A new venue is yet to be announced.

The decision came after last week's violent attack on the US Capitol by President Trump's supporters, which left five people dead.

The Trump Organisation said in a statement it has “a beautiful partnership with the PGA of America and are incredibly disappointed with their decision.”

“This is a breach of a binding contract and they have no right to terminate the agreement,” the statement said. “As an organization we have invested many, many millions of dollars in the 2022 PGA Championship at Trump National Golf Club, Bedminster. We will continue to promote the game of golf on every level and remain focused on operating the finest golf courses anywhere in the world.”

SOURCE

The PGA of America is made up of nearly 29,000 golf professionals and is responsible for hosting the PGA Championship, one of four prestigious "major championships" held in Professional Golf in a calendar year.

It can be recalled that the organisation cancelled The PGA Grand Slam of Golf in July 2015 at Trump National Los Angeles Golf Club after Trump called Mexican immigrants "rapists" during a speech announcing his first run for President.

The Grand Slam of Golf, which brings together the winners of the season's four major championships, was eventually cancelled that year due to "logistics and series of venue complications."

See where arrogance and gross impudence brought this man.

To the many deluded Trump supporters who are so convinced that the presidential election was rigged, can you explain why all the relevant law enforcement bodies and even judges appointed by Trump didn't find the election fraudulent and went as far throwing the matter out from state courts to federal courts even in Supreme Court?

Can you explain why even notable Republican Politicians don't agree with Trump on this?

Can you explain why the law enforcement agencies called the election the most secured and credible in US history?

Can you explain why many of Trump's aids are resigning?

Can you also explain why Mike Pence don't agree with Trump on Trump's bogus claims, hence Pence honourably didn't take advantage of his position and power to flip the election on Trump's side at the congress despite Trump's pressure privately and publicly?

Can you explain why the two Republican Senatorial aspirants lost again in Georgia despite the fact that Trump campaigned for them. Wasn't that enough proof that there wasn't any rigging from the onset.

Pls explain in simplest terms without bogus claims and presumptive links.

Thanks

Regardless of all the shenanigans, he's an ex US president and by far the richest ever. There are also millions of Americans who idolize him, so he'll be fine in the end. He is entitled to every benefit all ex-US presidents are entitled to by law upon handover.

We have got a couple of them already detailing the inside story of the extraordinary Trump presidency: The Trump show (my favourite) and The Trump Effect.

I am thinking the lady in this picture orchestrated this in order to get back to Trump! After this incident, she lost her job as a government contractor. Well, she used this picture as a key part of her campaign to win a local government seat in Virginia county. Now, she serves as a board member that supervises the county where Trump's National Golf Course is located.

In as much as I don't like Trump, I do feel that these actions will leave a very dangerous ripple effect on America as a Nation.

This might just mark the begining of the end of America as the world's super power.

The once esteemed position of the president of the US has been degraded beyond redemption.

They think they're hurting Trump, not knowing that this is a disastrous declension into a slippery slope of chaos and lose of the esteemed position of been a world power.

Trump was bad but these steps has shown how weak, useless, unimportant and volatile the position of the president can be.

Biden has so much to do, but even at that there'll be no recovery from this kind of damage to America as a world power.

Trump came with fire and didn't know when to stop stoking the fire.

After winning, switch off the fire and blow smoke every once in awhile to keep your supporters amused... That's how to play and survive politics

Now, the fire he kept burning has come to consume him and his entire brand!

What's tha business?

Trump needs to get a jail sentence so he can never seek political office again.
