Presidents Cup: Donald Trump to participate in trophy presentation at Liberty National

Presidents Cup: Donald Trump to participate in trophy presentation at Liberty National”

President Donald Trump will attend the 2017 Presidents Cup at Liberty National Golf Club in Jersey City, N.J., on Sunday, marking the first time since 2000 that a sitting American president has attended the biennial matches.

Military helicopters were seen attempting what appeared to be practice takeoffs and landings near Liberty National Friday evening, and commissioner Jay Monahan confirmed that the Tour was in talks with the White House over a possible appearance.

Trump is expected to leave Bedminster, where he spent the weekend at his golf club, at 2:20 p.m. and arrive at Liberty National at 3 p.m. With the United States team needing just 1 point of 12 available on Sunday, the Americans will certainly be winning.

Trump will depart the course shortly after the trophy ceremony and head to Morristown Municipal Airport, where he'll board Air Force One back to Washington, D.C.

There had been speculation all week that Trump would attend the Presidents Cup, a biennial event that matches the top 12 American golfers against 12 worldwide golfers.
