Trump has previously voiced his support for LIV Golf, warning PGA Tour loyalists of a missed opportunity. 

“All of those golfers that remain ‘loyal’ to the very disloyal PGA, in all of its different forms, will pay a big price when the inevitable MERGER with LIV comes, and you get nothing but a big ‘thank you’ from PGA officials who are making Millions of Dollars a year,” Trump wrote on Truth Social earlier this month.
