And it was Trump's recent visit to the course (and others he owns in the United Kingdom) that helped draw many unfavorable comparisons to the Brexit vote.
But Trump International Golf Links finally brought its namesake some positive press on Tuesday. Golfweek again named it the best modern course in the region of Britain and Ireland. Another Trump course, in Doonbeg, Ireland, came in at No. 14 on the same list. And the Trump-owned Turnberry Resort earned the No. 9 spot among classic courses.
The only bummer for Trump is that this good news arrived on a day when it would be overshadowed by the FBI's recommendation not to charge Hillary Clinton for her private email usage as secretary of state.
In fact, Trump has been so busy griping about the conclusion of the investigation that he hasn't even had time to brag on Twitter about his latest accomplishment. Sad!
The system is rigged. General Petraeus got in trouble for far less. Very very unfair! As usual, bad judgment.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 5, 2016
