Donald Trump said on Thursday that Texas Gov.
“Greg Abbott” should be “fired” from office and that the Trump Organization would be willing to pay $1.5 billion to secure his removal.
Trump has repeatedly accused Abbott of taking the Texas Golf Course, a popular golf destination in the state, hostage and threatening to sue the state if he doesn’t shut it down.
Trump has said he would have the facility reopened as a public course, but it hasn’t been open since 2001.
Abbott’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Trump’s comments.
“He’s the most incompetent governor in Texas history,” Trump said during an appearance at the White House.
“I think the president is going to take care of this.”
Trump said Abbott’s actions would make the state a “total disaster.”
“He needs to go,” Trump added.
“He’s a disgrace.
He should be fired.
He’s a total disgrace.”
