We know that Donald Trump is a pretty good golfer, but on Wednesday at a campaign event in Daytona Beach, Fla., the Republican nominee for president put his golf clubs where his mouth is, jokingly challenging President Barack Obama to a golf match for the presidency.
The real estate mogul maintained that he “came right back” and recalled saying, “I don’t want to hold a golf club.”
“I do not want a picture of me holding a golf club — not that there’s anything wrong with that, but I don’t want that picture,” Trump said. “So they say, ‘Mr. Trump, would you like to hit the first ball?’ No! Keep the club away from me. Keep it away. And I like to play golf. I’m a good golfer, believe it or not.”
Trump suggested he’s so good that people are often surprised by it before stating a sure-fire way to win the White House: by beating the sitting president in golf.
“I should play Obama for the presidency,” he said. “I’ll do it. Then I’d be assured of winning, OK?”
