Crowds watch the 2017 US Women's Open
Trump National hosted the 2017 US Women’s Open

Trump National in Bedminster has been stripped of the US PGA Championship in 2022 as its organisers felt using the course as host would be “detrimental”.

The PGA of America voted to terminate the agreement on Sunday.

President Donald Trump has been accused by Democrats and some Republicans of encouraging last Wednesday’s riot in Congress, in which five people died.

A representative for the Trump Organization said they were “incredibly disappointed” with the decision.

“It has become clear that conducting the PGA Championship at Trump Bedminster would be detrimental to the PGA of America brand and would put at risk the PGA’s ability to deliver our many programmes and sustain the longevity of our mission,” said PGA of America President Jim Richerson.

“It was a decision made to ensure the PGA of America and PGA professionals can continue to lead and grow our game for decades to come.”

The course in New Jersey, one of 17 courses around the world owned by Mr Trump, was due to host the major in May 2022.

The PGA of America is now searching for a replacement host for one of the game’s biggest four men’s individual events.

“We have had a beautiful partnership with the PGA of America,” Trump’s representative added.

“This is a breach of a binding contract and they have no right to terminate the agreement.”

US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has shared with lawmakers plans to remove President Trump from office before starting an impeachment process, following the riots in the US Capitol building.
