LIV Golf has been muddled with controversy for its involvement with the Saudi Arabian government amid reports of human rights abuses in the country. The company that runs the tour — which entered the professional golf world as an alternate to the US-based PGA Tour — is bankrolled by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Funds.

Critics have accused Saudi Arabia of “sportswashing” its human rights atrocities through its involvement with LIV Golf and other sports.

Families of 9/11 victims have also bashed the circuit — especially since the tournament will be taking place less than 50 miles from where the twin towers once stood.

Fifteen of the 19 hijackers on 9/11 were from Saudi Arabia and the FBI released hundreds of pages of newly declassified documents last year exploring the connection between the Saudi government and the terrorist attacks. 

Nonetheless, Trump has dismissed human rights concerns over Saudi Arabia in recent days while also blasting the PGA Tour, which has suspended players who compete in LIV Golf from participating in its tournament.

“All of those golfers that remain ‘loyal’ to the very disloyal PGA, in all of its different forms, will pay a big price when the inevitable MERGER with LIV comes,” 

Trump wrote on his social media platform Truth Social.

The winner of the LIV Golf Invitational Series this week will be awarded with $4 million from a $25 million purse.
