When Trump supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, January 6, they professed that this act was designed to “fight for Trump” and “stop the steal.” Suffice it to say, the events over the past five days have shown that those who forced their way into Capitol Hill achieved the opposite of their professed goals.
Not only did Congress solidify Joe Biden as the next president, but the House of Representatives is threatening to impeach Trump (again) unless he’s removed via the 25th Amendment.
Multiple social media platforms have suspended President Trump from using their online services…and now the Professional Golfers’ Association (PGA) of America is terminating an agreement they had with Trump’s New Jersey Golf Club, Newsmax reports.
Cutting Ties with the Trump Golf Club
Per the PGA, last week’s events on Capitol Hill terminated their interest in hosting their company’s 2022 championship at Trump’s golf club.
In a statement, PGA president Jim Richerson informed that “detriment” would befall the company’s brand, should they associate themselves with the president’s Bedminster golf club facility. Richerson also stated that PGA needs to maintain the “longevity of [their] mission” and “deliver [their] many programs.” Therefore, the association voted to cancel its agreement with the president’s golf club.

The decision from the Professional Golfers’ Association of America follows multiple big tech companies either restricting or terminating Trump’s access to their platforms.
Future Business Ventures for Trump
Amid Twitter permanently banning the @realDonaldTrump account, the president has indicated that he may start a platform of his own.
Rumors have circulated about Trump launching a news/media company to compete with the mainstream platforms; however, the removal from Twitter and other platforms engendered a demand for social media sites where conservatives feel safe, rather than censored, shadowbanned, or restricted in speech.

Thus far, President Trump has yet to release a statement about the decision from PGA. He is, however, expected to visit Alamo, Texas tomorrow to observe more than 400 miles of border wall constructed under his presidency.
In precisely nine days, President Trump will depart from the White House for good.
