Donald Trump sure knows how to find the
gold silver lining!
On Tuesday, both NASCAR and ESPN pulled out of events from the presidential candidate's golf courses due to his racist comments.
But The Donald isn't too worried about the bridges he's burning, because he claims that he's only getting richer because of them!

The 69-year-old issued a statement calling out his critics who pointed out the "setback" due to his actions. He said:
"Really? What were the losses? One NASCAR banquet in a magnificent ballroom at Trump National Doral in Miami for which I will keep their very substantial deposit and rent the ballroom to someone else that night — in other words, two fees instead of one (NASCAR has already apologized to me)!"
Way to stay positive and think about the bottom line, Donald… He continued:
"In the case of ESPN, they cancelled a simple golf outing at my course, Trump National Golf Club Los Angeles, overlooking the Pacific Ocean, perhaps the most valuable parcel of land in all of golf. Likewise, they lost a large deposit. I will now let people use the course on that day, receiving substantial additional greens fee income. Again, I get two fees instead of one."
Wow, he really is good at math!
We hope the billionaire continues to drop these pearls of wisdom when more corporations sever ties with him!
