Kathmandu: Former President Donald Trump’s company has gotten the green light to host a golf tournament in the Bronx sponsored by the Saudi Arabian government, infuriating relatives of 9/11 victims already fuming over a similar event held at a Trump course in neighboring New Jersey last month.
As reported by the New York Daily News, the Trump Organization recently secured the permit from Mayor Adams’ administration to hold the women’s tournament at its Ferry Point course in Throgs Neck this October.
The Aramco Team Series tournament is in part bankrolled by the Saudi government, and the event’s title sponsor, Aramco, is the kingdom’s state-owned oil producer.
Word of the Ferry Point permit comes on the heels of Trump drawing a barrage of criticism from 9/11 families for hosting the LIV Golf Series, another Saudi-tied golf tournament, at his course in Bedminster, N.J., in July.
