Protesters Target Trump Golf Course During PGA Event

Anti-Trump protesters took their message to the president's golf club in Loudoun County Sunday.

They showed up at the Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, which was hosting the KitchenAid Senior PGA championship. Some protesters set up shop across the street from the entrance; some others appeared to have approached the course by boat on the Potomac.

They carried signs reading "Moscow on the Potomac" and "I can see Russia from here."

Among their concerns: They say they're worried about the business conflicts they feel his presidency has presented.

"He and his family continue to make money off of his position in the White House, which is wrong," said Guy Potucek, one of the protesters.

Trump family members have said talks of hosting the tournament at the Virginia club started before President Trump thought of running for office.

President Trump also has said his business holdings are in a trust, run by his children.
