Washington, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senators Bob Casey (D-PA), Ed Markey (D-MA), and Dick Blumenthal (D-CT) are sending a letter to the United States Golf Association (USGA), urging them to move the 2017 U.S. Women’s Open from the Trump National in Bedminster, New Jersey. The letter comes following numerous allegations of Donald Trump degrading and dehumanizing women that has occurred over several decades.
“The decision that the USGA makes is more consequential than simply the geographic location of a golf tournament,” the Senators wrote. “In declining future association with a brand that degrades women, the USGA and LPGA have an opportunity to make clear to the world, and most especially young Americans, that our nation will not tolerate nor do business with any company that condones or excuses action that constitutes sexual assault.”
