USA Today reports that American President Donald Trump has appointed at least eight members of his golf clubs to positions in his administration, including Romanian-born Adrian Zuckerman, proposed as ambassador to Romania.
“Adrian Zuckerman, a New York real estate lawyer, to be the U.S. ambassador to Romania last year. Zuckerman registered his golf handicap through Trump’s club in Bedminster, New Jersey, a service the club has said is available only to members. Scores he posted on a public website show he played at the club eight times in 2017 on days when Trump was visiting. (He posted scores between 83 and 100 on those days.)”, USA Today wrote.
Members of Trump’s Florida and New Jersey golf clubs nominated for positions so far also include Lana Marks, a luxury handbag designer Trump nominated last year as ambassador to South Africa or David Cornstein as ambassador to Hungary. Cornstein and his wife, Sheila, both registered their golf handicaps through Trump’s club in West Palm Beach. Read the full article here.
