President Donald J. Trump awarded legendary golfer Tiger Woods with the highest civilian honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, during a recorded ceremony earlier this afternoon.
The president joked with Woods, his family and his golf caddy while in a rare appearance in the Rose Garden earlier this afternoon.
“For over five decades the presidential medal of freedom has been given to individuals who have made an outstanding contributions to American life, history, and culture,” said President Trump. “This evening we are in the presence of a true legend, an extraordinary athlete who has transformed golf and achieved new levels of dominance. He’s also a great person, he’s a great guy.”
He also called Woods a “global symbol of American excellence, devotion, and drive.”
When President Trump remarked that Woods’ father, Earl Woods, was “tough,” the world class golfer joked that his mother may be even tougher.
President Trump told Woods that that his “spectacular achievements on the golf course, your triumph over physical adversity and your relentless will to win, win, win,” together “qualities embody the American spirit of pushing boundaries, defying limits and always striving for greatness.”

Woods is widely considered the world’s finest golfer, and recently found himself back on the golf course after suffering a debilitating injury that resulted in several surgeries from 2014 through 2017. He returned to the sport last year, winning the Tour Championship, and continued his winning streak this year when he won the 2019 Masters.
WATCH: Portland ANTIFA Deploys Incendiary Device Directly Against Portland Police in Nightly Riot
This is terrorism.
An ANTIFA militant threw an incendiary device directly at officers of the Portland Police Bureau during a Breonna Taylor riot in Portland, Oregon on Wednesday night.
The device, which may have been a molotov cocktail, caused a considerable fire right next to a formation of marching officers.

The considerably large fire set by the device is quickly extinguished by an officer carrying a fire extinguisher.
This could’ve easily killed someone. Portland ANTIFA elevated its level of agitation and violence on Wednesday night, largely aware that they can act with impunity without fear of consequences from Portland’s neutered police department, complicit prosecutor, and clueless mayor.
Another view of the attack shows just how dangerous the de facto grenade was to the public and to law enforcement. This was an act of terrorism and attempted murder.
Another angle. That person was clearly aiming the Molotov cocktail at police officers. Attempted murder. pic.twitter.com/SE0mWsZ2Aa

The individual who threw the incendiary device was wearing a mask, and runs off on the video footage of the attack. It’s unclear if the Portland Police Bureau arrested them for the criminal act, but he or she could be charged with a range of felony offenses as severe as attempted murder.
The demonstration was declared and riot and dispersed shortly after the attack. It’s likely Portland ANTIFA will continue street havoc in full force this weekend, with the Breonna Taylor grand jury decision(all the way across the country in Kentucky) potentially inspiring the most dangerous street riots in Portland since the organized criminal behavior began more than three months ago.
An Oregon man used a molotov cocktail device in an attempt to start a wildfire in the already devastated state earlier this week. Firefighters have been combating some of the most destructive fires in recent history in Oregon and California, and one man charged with starting them is a longtime left-wing activist with a criminal record of riot violations.
