Trump praises Nicklaus bigly in upcoming Golf Channel special

President Donald Trump showers bigly praise on Jack Nicklaus in Golf Channel’s “Jack” – a three-night special about Jack Nicklaus that premieres on Masters Sunday, April 9, at 9 p.m.

“People like Jack, they have a desire to win,”Trump says in the special. “They never give up, they never quit. He’s a man that’s led a truly exemplary life; his family, his work ethic, his championship status. He’s a very exceptional man.”

Nicklaus was effusive in his praise of the current president. “I have known Donald for a long time, through the game of golf. He’s been very supportive of a lot of things I have done. I think he’s going to be good in the office, going to do a good job,” Nicklaus said at NBC-Universal’s Summer Press Day.

“I think he’s going to be good in the office, going to do a good job.

Just last week, Trump slammed Golf Channel’s partner network NBC over its reporting of his wiretapping claims against former President Obama.

“I made a fortune for NBC with The Apprentice. I had a top show where they were doing horribly, and I had one of the most successful reality shows of all time. I made — and I was on 14 seasons,” he told Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson. “And you see what happened when I’m not on? … You saw what happened to the show was a disaster. … I was very good to NBC, and I — they are despicable.”
