Donald Trump -- ESPN, NASCAR Made Me Richer ... Thanks!

Breaking News

Donald Trump says he gives ZERO CRAPS about ESPN and NASCAR pulling events from his golf courses ... claiming he's only getting RICHER because of them anyway! 

In fact, Trump just issued a charged statement -- blasting critics who described the moves as a "setback" for him ... saying: 

"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)!"

"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."

Trump says he's still determined to win the White House and "Make America Great Again" -- and sends this message to anyone who thinks the issues with ESPN and NASCAR will stop him: 

"Give me a break!"
