Trump asked Woody Johnson to see if the U.K. government "could help steer” the tournament to his Trump Turnberry resort, reported The New York Times.
The 19-year-old victim's mother directly appealed to American leadership, saying, "President Trump, we're a family in ruin."
Woody Johnson wrote in a Sunday Telegraph op-ed that America wants "the UK by our side."
“I never want to put restrictions on the speech of our players."
New York Jets Owner Woody Johnson will require Senate confirmation to take up the post.
Johnson first contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars to Jeb Bush, then backed Trump.
This was a Rich Kotite type of a season, punctuated by mistakes, turnovers, missed opportunities and, above all, losses. Will the Jets fly again? There is some reason for hope, but a lot of patience will be required first.
The collective, will, wisdom and "ownership" of the Jets nation has now clearly spoken. It is yelling: "Fire John Idzik." Woody Johnson, hope you are listening.
