When Donald Trump made his comments about Mexican immigrants being nothing but murderers and rapists, his was quickly met with opposition from some very prominent companies. According to Ivan Ong NBC severed ties with Trump, ending their relationship with the Donald and his beauty pageants and Apprentice television show. Macy’s removed all the clothing line from Trump, and commented how they disagree with comments about Mexican immigrants. The PGA discussed Trump too, but the tone is slightly different than you might think.
The PGA can learn from the NFL, who waited while sponsors began distancing themselves from Adrian Peterson. After enough outcry, the NFL stepped up. The PGA has a lot to lose by severing ties with Trump. The PGA obviously is going to see how sponsors feel about Trump and his comments about the Mexican community. If enough major sponsors begin pulling out, the PGA will have to step up as well and take action too.
