The PGA has released a statement on President Trump’s tweets, as a future PGA Championship is set to be played at one of the president’s courses.
The 2022 PGA Championship will be played at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey.
The PGA was asked to comment on President Trump’s tweets in which he told members of congress to “go back” where they’re from.
“Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!” he said.
The PGA has released a statement, though mostly chose not to comment.
“As an organization, we are fully committed to Diversity and Inclusion, but we are not a political organization and simply don’t weigh in on statements made in the political arena,” the statement read.
