Former President Donald Trump predicted on Tuesday night that Tiger Woods will make a comeback following his devastating car wreck.
Trump spoke to Fox News about the golf legend after Woods severely injured his legs during a high-speed roll-over crash in his SUV outside Los Angeles earlier on Tuesday.
“He’s gonna be back, I have no doubt about it. He’s gonna be back,” Trump said in the interview.
Trump has had a close relationship with Woods, golfing with the Masters champ several times during his presidency.
The president also awarded Woods a Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2019.
“Because it was Tiger, everyone wanted to be there. Everyone went crazy,” he told host Katie Pavlich about the ceremony.
“It was a big event. He considered this one of the great honors of his life,” Trump said.
The former president heaped praise on Woods, who underwent surgery at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center.
“He’s overcome a lot. He’s had an incredible life and he’s going to continue to have an incredible life,” Trump said.
“But now he’ll recover from this. It’s pretty bad on the legs, I understand. He’ll figure out a way. He’s a wonderful person.”
