Congratulations, Mr. President.”
Woods has been outspoken in his support for Trump and his politics. “Let’s face it. Donald Trump is a rough individual,” he admitted in a tweet. “He is vain, insensitive and raw.

Furthermore, he has even expressed his distaste in former President Barack Obama. “Rough men stay the course,” he wrote. “Treachery, however, is the most dangerous enemy a leader can face. Even Caesar succumbed to it. Be wary. Stay strong. God bless. #ObamaGate”
