Donald Trump: ‘No More Golf’ if Bernie Sanders Is Elected President

December 31, 2015

Donald Trump has said a lot of outrageous things while running for the Republican nomination for president in 2015, often warning of dire consequences if he is not elected next November.

Now, Trump has a warning for golfers in the United States: if Democratic contender Bernie Sanders is elected president, there will be no more golf.

While speaking at a rally in Hilton Head Island, S.C., Trump touched on a topic close to the hearts of the golfy locals in the area, saying:

“[Bernie Sanders] wants to tax you. Think of it. This guy wants to raise your taxes to 90 percent. No, no, think. You’ll have to move out — I love this area by the way, I’ve been here many times. Great golfing area, right? We love it. No more golf — no more golf. You won’t have any golf any more. You won’t have any money left to be golfing.”
