British Government Says U.S. Ambassador Never Asked to Move British Open to Trump Golf Course

The New York Times published an anonymously sourced story on Tuesday accusing President Trump of asking the American ambassador to Britain to see if the British government could help him book the British Open golf tournament at the Trump golf course in Scotland. However, statements from both the British government and the golf association in charge of the tournament seem to contradict the story.
