SACRAMENTO — Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump swung back hard at the PGA Tour on Wednesday for moving a golf tournament from his course in Miami to Mexico, and he sounded an ominous warning about how he would respond to such decisions as president.
For Trump, it marked the latest instance of singling out a person, institution or industry he claimed was menacing him unjustly. It also raised new questions about how far he would be willing to go as president to punish his foes. Last week, Trump criticized U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel — who is hearing a fraud case against now-defunct Trump University — with deeply personal and racially tinged language. In a combative news conference Tuesday, Trump said that as president, he would not back down from fierce criticism of journalists he thinks are covering him unfairly.
