Trump golf club members who quit over his presidency say they’re still waiting to get deposits back

Golfers who ended their memberships at Trump National Doral after President Trump’s election have yet to get their deposits back, the Miami Herald reported Thursday.

Two former members told the outlet that they were no longer willing to write Trump checks after his election. Another quit in December after the Miami club became too political.

In order to move up the list by one spot, four new golf members need to join Doral, according to the membership terms. 

“I have no faith,” a former member of 18 years who left after the 2016 election told the Herald. “We’ll never see the money. That’s why I don’t bother worrying about it.”

The Trump Organization, which runs the golf course and resort, did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Hill.

Trump has not directly run the organization since he put it into a trust controlled by his adult sons when he entered office in 2017.
