Jul 30, 2022

Former President Donald Trump defended allowing the LIV Golf Tournament to play at his club in Bedminster, New Jersey, after families of those lost in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks urged him to back out over the tour's ties to Saudi Arabia.

Trump told ESPN that criticism of Saudi Arabia, which for years has faced accusations of funding terrorism, should not impact the tournament.

"Nobody’s gotten to the bottom of 9/11, unfortunately," said Trump. "They should have, as to the maniacs that did that horrible thing to our city, to the country, to the world. So nobody's really been there."
