Golf courses are a favorite pastime of Donald Trump, who owns the course where the president-elect is playing, according to an interview with golf legend Nick Faldo.
Trump, a longtime fan, once tweeted a photo of himself playing with the club at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.
Now the course is the subject of a documentary by Faldo, who wrote and produced the short film “The Donald.”
Faldo said he didn’t know how much the project would cost until a month ago, when Trump asked for help.
“It’s just not something you can just say, ‘Hey, we’re going to do this,'” Faldo told Recode.
“I think he’s an incredible person and he’s going to keep pushing himself, pushing himself.”
The documentary will also look at the history of Trump’s club, which is in West Palm Beach, Florida.
The Palm Beach Post first reported the project in November.
In the documentary, Faldo takes on the Trump family’s relationship with golf, and how Trump made his money and his club his own.
Trump’s son Eric Trump and his son Donald Jr. played golf with Faldo at his club in 2002.
“He’s very generous, and I think the people who are fortunate enough to be with him, it’s an honor to be around him,” Faldo explained to Recode on Thursday.
“When you have people who have the ability to make that happen, it really is something to behold.”
Fido, who is currently the director of the Center for Media and Democracy at the New America Foundation, said the film would have a powerful effect on the American public.
“For a long time, I thought there was no way that the media would take on Donald Trump and the way he operates,” he said.
“The more that I’ve learned about how he does business, the more I’ve found out about the lengths that he goes to in order to keep himself in power.
It’s a shame, and it’s a testament to the power of Donald Trumps brand of media to go out there and get away with it.”
Trump has been at odds with the media in the past, including during the 2016 election when he called Fox News “fake news” and claimed his campaign had “paid” CNN for coverage of the presidential race.
Faldo says the Trump campaign was not paid for the coverage.
“This is a guy who has made millions and millions of dollars from his brand of advertising,” Fido said.
Fido also said he had heard rumors that the Trump administration was interested in making a movie about the club.
Faldi also said that he had been in contact with the Trump Organization about making a film about the property, and that the president was interested.
Faldos story came out as the Trump team was trying to sell the club, but they were told by Trump that the film was not going to be made, Faldi said.
In an interview on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Friday, Faldo said he was unsure if Trump would consider buying the property.
“We’re still trying to figure out what we’re gonna do with it, but I don’t know,” Faldi told Colbert.
“At this point, I’m just in a position of trying to stay out of it and keep my fingers crossed that we’re not going anywhere.”
Trump spokesman Jason Miller told Recoding that the campaign did not hear from the Trump camp until Thursday.
Miller also told RecODE that the project was still in the planning stages.
“Donald is committed to preserving and protecting his golf courses,” Miller said in a statement to Recoding.
“With the help of his son Eric and his father, he has worked tirelessly to promote his business, and continue to serve as a champion of the people of the United States.
His golf course continues to be a cornerstone of his legacy as President-elect.”
The president-trumps family also owns the golf course that hosted the Republican National Convention.
In December, Trump was awarded the $250 million contract for a renovation to the Trump National Golf Club in New Jersey.
In January, Trump won the contract for the $200 million renovation to his Palm Beach estate, which he owns in Palm Beach.
