Donald Trump: Leading players quiet on controversial remarks

Donald Trump: Leading players quiet on controversial remarks
donald-trump-leading-players-quiet-on-controversial-remarks
Rickie Fowler's face was a picture, the American wearing http://www.nflgiantsofficialonlines.com/GIANTS-JACQUIAN-WILLIAMS-JERSEY the kind of rabbit-in-the-headlights expression that almost made you feel sorry for him. In the Scottish Open media centre at Gullane on Wednesday morning, Fowler had to deal with the continuing fallout of Donald Trump's comments about Mexican immigrants during his bid for the Republican nomination for next year's presidential election in the USA. Trump is a leading owner of stellar golf courses mostly in the United States, but also, of course, in Scotland, with Trump International in Aberdeen and the storied links at Turnberry among his portfolio. Given his status as one of the most significant supporters and investors in world golf his words can boomerang back and hit the game straight between the eyes, as has been the case with his wretched remarks about some Mexican immigrants being "rapists" and "killers". The quotes have caused a storm, both on the day he made them last week and in the days after he reiterated them on national television in the USA. Instead of seeking to calm the controversy, Trump threw another log on the fire and attacked Mexican immigrants anew. On Wednesday, the United States Professional Golfers Association joined the behemoth retail store, Macy's, and the major media companies, Univision and NBC, in disassociating themselves from Trump, stating that it was in "the best interests of all not to conduct the 2015 PGA Grand Slam of Golf at Trump National Los Angeles". That was the first skittle to fall, but as the game Authentic Derrick Rose Jersey comes under increasing pressure to cut Trump loose from holding marquee tournaments at his courses, it may not be the last. It was hotly rumoured that Trump's course in Aberdeen was set to be announced as host venue for an upcoming Scottish Open but that talk has cooled now. Frankly, it's nigh on impossible to imagine a championship that is financially supported by the Holyrood parliament cheerily backing Trump's vision in Aberdeen. The issue will be a hot topic again at the Open at St Andrews next week when the R&A will be pressed on its views about the saga and whether, in particular, Turnberry is still in its thoughts as a championship venue. Fowler - and other players - have been caught in the crossfire and to say they are struggling to come up with a response to a question of Trump's suitability as a host for tournaments on the PGA and European Tours is to put it mildly. From a trawl of Twitter accounts of the leading players of the world, not one has condemned or even mildly rebuked Trump for his comments. They have remained silent and unquestioning, perhaps reluctant to bite the hand that, in part, feeds them. You longed for one man to stand up and be counted on the issue but embracing controversial subjects is not in a golfer's DNA. Most would sooner poke out their own eyes with the tip of their golf umbrella than engage in such a heavyweight business. "I had not heard about it yet," said Fowler, weakly, when the Buster Posey Giants Jersey question came about the Grand Slam of Golf being removed from Trump's place in Los Angeles. "I'm not too sure. It's not exactly my spot to comment in a way. If that's what they feel is best then it is what it is. "We go and play the best tournaments in the world, wherever they may be. But that's the Tour's decision to make and I feel like they do the best job for us to give us the best places to play. "For the most part I'm getting to go live my dream out here and play the PGA tour. I'll have fun wherever we get to play." Fowler smiled uncomfortably later, knowing that he had managed to dodge a question that he'd rather not have been asked. He was not alone in that. On the range, Jamie Donaldson, the Ryder Cup http://www.officialavalancheonline.com/Red+Jarome+Iginla+Jersey immortal from Gleneagles, claimed to know nothing about the Trump story. "Don't know anything about it," he said.
