Miss USA won't be the only one of Donald Trump's business ventures that suffers due to his racist comments.
The Trump National Golf Club has just lost out big time as ESPN has pulled a huge tournament, and the PGA has pulled their Grand Slam of Golf too!

The ESPY Celebrity Golf Classic tournament was scheduled to be played at Trump National on July 14, but at the last minute ESPN moved it to Pelican Hill Golf Club.
In an expertly worded statement, the network explained:
"We decided it was appropriate to change the venue, and are grateful for the opportunity to stage the event at Pelican Hill on short notice. This charity outing benefits the V Foundation's Stuart Scott Memorial Cancer Research Fund, providing resources for important cancer research for minority populations, including Hispanics and African Americans. Our decision reflects our deep feelings for our former colleague and support for inclusion of all sports fans. Diversity and inclusion are core values at ESPN and our decision also supports that commitment."
See how they talked about Trump without ever saying Trump? Masters, indeed! LOLz!
As for the PGA, their statement read:
"The PGA of America met with Donald J. Trump yesterday and the parties mutually agreed that it is in the best interest of all not to conduct the 2015 PGA Grand Slam of Golf at Trump National — Los Angeles. The PGA of America is in the process of exploring options, including a venue for its annual PGA Junior League Golf Championship, and will comment further at the appropriate time."
That's pretty rough on the former Celebrity Apprentice star, but what can he expect at this point?
Ugly comments like those he keeps making about Mexico are bound to drive everyone away.
