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 spoke of the resiliency of Woods, who has undergone five back surgeries in his career.
“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.”
