“I was really surprised,” former President Donald J. Trump said in his initial reaction to golf legend Tiger Woods’ car accident on Tuesday in Rancho Palos Verdes, California.
Trump — who presented Tiger with the Medal of Freedom in 2019 — voiced concern about Woods’ future following the car accident, given that he was close to returning to golf after back-related issues.
“He won the Masters, and he won the Masters with a bad back, which tells you the level of talent is incredible. And he’s been working on that and he has this happen. It’s just tragic,” Trump told Fox News host Katie Pavlich.
After reflecting on Tiger’s career and many of his strong qualities, Trump declared Woods will “be back.”
“He’s a very respected person. He’s so respected by the other players — they idolize him. And, he’s going to be back. I have no doubt about it. He’s going to be back,” Trump said. Video Below
