In a major blow to former US President Donald Trump, his golf courses have been excluded from the 2024 schedule of the LIV Golf league. The decision was announced by the newly formed golf league, which is backed by the Saudi Arabian government.
The move is seen as a significant setback for Trump, who has heavily invested in the golf industry and has used it as a platform to promote his brand and political message. The exclusion of his golf courses from the prestigious LIV Golf tour is expected to have a negative impact on his business and reputation in the golfing world.
The decision to exclude Trump’s courses comes amid ongoing controversies and criticism surrounding his political career and business dealings. The announcement also reflects a growing trend of distancing from Trump and his brand, particularly in the wake of the January 6th Capitol riot and subsequent impeachment proceedings.
Trump has previously faced backlash over his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic and controversial statements regarding race, immigration, and other social issues. Many have called for a boycott of his properties and businesses, which has led to a decline in revenue and prestige for the former president.
The exclusion of Trump’s golf courses from the LIV Golf schedule is seen as a significant blow to his business empire and further isolates him from the mainstream golfing community. With the rise of alternative golf leagues and tours, it remains to be seen how this setback will impact Trump’s future in the golf industry.
