Eric Trump Slams WashPost for Story on Family Golf Course


Trump National Golf Course in Rancho Palos Verdes has become something of a focal point for anti-Trump messages and protests in the Los Angeles area.

They claimed their message - "No More Tigers, No More Woods" - was directed at the Trump administration's supposed environmental transgressions.

An unidentified, self-labeled "anonymous environmental activist collective" made a decision to show President Trump exactly how they felt about his "blatant disregard" for environmental policies. The unidentified group cut "no more tigers no more woods" into the green with rakes.

Here's a virtual flyover of the hole. The task reportedly took under an hour.

"Repurposing what was once a lovely stretch of land into a playground for the privileged is an environmental crime in its own right", one of the vandals said.

The four-person group revealed to The Washington Post they had made their way onto the course via "a steep hill laced with cacti" - and said "tearing up the golf course felt justified" because Mr Trump had repurposed "what was once a lovely stretch of land into a playground for the privileged". "No more woods." in six-foot letters, the Post said.

They sent a statement to the newspaper explaining the vandalism was a response to the Trump administration's "blatant disregard for the environment".

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department received word about vandalization at 8:45 a.m., added KABC. Golf Digest ranked the 18-hole, 7,300-yard course the 43rd best course in California.

Donald Trump owns or operates 17 golf courses worldwide.
