The United States Golfer,Tiger Woods has urged Americans to respect the office of the U.S. President no matter who is occupying it.
Trump and Woods are known golfing partners for years and have remained in touch ever since Trump took office.
Woods said during a news conference just after the final round of the U.S. PGA Northern Trust tournament.“He’s the President of the United States. You have to respect the office. No matter who is in the office, you may like, dislike personality or the politics, but we all must respect the office,”.
Tiger Woods advice comes on the heels of criticisms that have trailed Donald Trump’s administration as U.S. President.
“Well, I’ve known Donald for a number of years.
“We’ve played golf together. We’ve had dinner together. I’ve known him pre-presidency and obviously during his presidency,” Woods said.
The golf star was then asked to comment about the race relations in the country, which he declined.
“No, I just finished 72 holes and really hungry,” Woods said and moved on to questions that were relevant to his performance at the tournament that day.
His comment was in response to a provocative reporter’s question that tried to get Woods to denounce Trump’s policies and feuds with NBA and NFL players.
