Clout Public Affairs has dropped the PGA Tour as a client following its decision to merge with the Saudi Arabia government’s LIV Golf.
It had been working with the PGA and 9/11 Justice, which wants to hold Saudi Arabia accountable for the terror attacks, to highlight the upstart tour’s ties with the Kingdom.
Clout PA is a unit of Republican consulting firm Axiom Strategies.
Jeff Roe, who is Axiom’s founder, is an advisor to the Never Back Down political action committee that is backing Ron DeSantis.
DeSantis hosted 9/11 Justice president Brett Eagleson, and others who lost loved ones during the terror attacks and Gold Star families, at a Memorial Day barbeque at the governor’s mansion in Tallahassee.
Former president Donald Trump hosted a LIV Golf tournament during the Memorial Day weekend at his course in Virginia, which is about 30 miles away from the Pentagon, where 184 people were killed on 9/11.
“I just want to juxtapose that against what a former president is doing on this very weekend at a golf course and one of his own golf courses, lining the pockets from a country who stands accused in a trial as we speak… of aiding and abetting and sponsoring the 9/11 terror attacks,” Eagleson told the New York Post.
Trump called the PGA/LIV hook-up a “big, beautiful, and glamorous deal."
