He wrote that Trump's golf resort in Doral, Fla., will play host to a tournament Saturday "put on by a Miami-area strip club, which will allow golfers to pay for a dancer to serve as their "caddy girl" while they play at the president's club".
"The event was originally booked with the understanding that it would be raising money to support a local charity benefiting underprivileged children", a Trump Organization spokesperson told TPM in an emailed statement. The Trump Doral is one of the gems of Mr Trump's hotel empire - a legendary 57-year-old golf resort that Trump bought for $150 million in 2012, which is now a regular venue for private events and charities.
The Post reported Wednesday that Carlos Alamilla, the director of Miami Allstars, had paid little attention to the planned event and not seen the advertisements until the newspaper called him.
President Donald Trump still owns the Doral resort, but his sons Donald Jr. and Eric oversee the day-to-day operations of the resort and his other properties, the Post noted.More news: Iowa reports 1st confirmed 2019 human West Nile virus case
The reason? The company backing the tournament was a strip club.
A STRIP club yesterday announced the cancellation of a charity golf tournament that was to be held at one of US President Donald Trump's courses.
The tournament offers golfers a choice of dancers to be their "caddy girl".
"The marketing director for the strip club is quoted as saying the women will be clothed in pink miniskirts and a "'sexy white polo'" on the course and that the girls were being trained on how to advise players on golf shots. After the tournament, golfers and dancers will proceed to a different venue for a burlesque show.More news: Google is giving social networking another try with Shoelace
A Trump Organization statement to the Washington Post said funds raised by the tournament were to go to the Miami All Stars charity. The charity's website says it is a a "non-profit organization under the laws of the State of Florida", but according to The Post's report, the state of Florida said the group is not registered as a charity.
"None of my kids are going to be participating in your event", he said he told the organizers.
Alamilla told The Post that the Miami All-Stars provide mentoring, tutoring and basketball lessons to about 40 young people. But, he said, "if we can get some help, you know, for our programs starting now.it would be OK".More news: Rob Gronkowski catches passes from Tom Brady
