Trump’s Saudi-Funded Golf Tournament Is A Giant Dud – Tickets Going For As Little As $1

Proving once again that he is a terrible judge of what is a good business decision, failed, one-term former president Donald Trump’s partnership with the Saudi-funded LIV golf tournament has turned into a massive dud, with people staying away in droves and tickets going for as little as a buck a pop.

According to the Wall Street Journal:

“The delicate politics of this new tour took a marquee role at Trump National Golf Club Bedminster for LIV’s third event. Mr. Trump has emerged as a rare politician in favor of the Saudi-backed venture, as many on Capitol Hill have raised concerns over it.”

The families of those who perished on Sept. 11, 2001 have also objected to Trump hosting a golf event in connection with the Saudis. 15 of the 19 hijackers who carried out the 9/11 terror attack were Saudi nationals.

On Wednesday, ABC News reported:

Terry Strada, the chair of the organization 9/11 Families United, which advocates for families of victims and survivors of the 2001 attacks, was shocked when she heard that the LIV Golf Tournament would be playing at the Bedminster Golf Course in Bedminster, New Jersey.

“I couldn’t believe that it was actually going to be playing right there practically in my backyard.”

Trump’s response to Strada and other family members of 9/11 victims only added insult to injury, with the twice-impeached ex-president saying:

“Nobody’s gotten to the bottom of 9/11, unfortunately.”

“But I can tell you that there are a lot of really great people that are out here today, and we’re gonna have a lot of fun, and we’re going to celebrate. Money’s going to charity—a lot of money’s going to charity.”

And now financial karma is paying a visit to the “great businessman” who was impeached twice while in office, with the Journal noting:

The golf itself, meanwhile, wasn’t exactly supercharged—light crowds were spread across much of the vast grounds here on the first day of the tournament. Tickets for the Saturday session were available on stubhub.com for as little as $1.

Of course, anyone who would pay anything to see Trump play golf is a fool. Watching a morbidly obese loser who cheats and lies about his actual score is so pathetic that he should have to bribe people just to pay attention.
