The author of an old biography that is critical of Donald Trump says that the President-elect asked himt o leave a Trump-owned golf course in Florida on Friday, reports CNN.
Harry Hurt III, the author of "Lost Tycoon: The Many Lives of Donald J. Trump," says that he was gearing up for a game of gold at the Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach last week when he introduced himself to the former Republican candidate, who was on the practice range.
This message was posted to Harry Hurt III's Facebook page.
Hurt went over to the president-elect to offer hos congratulations on winning the 2016 presidential race, but the gesture wasn't reciprocated.
In a Facebook post, Hurt claims that Trump said, "You were rough on me, Harry. Really rough. That shit you wrote."
Trump then had Hurt and three friends, including major Republican donor David Koch, escorted to the parking lot by his security detail.
Hurts book, published in 1993, included reporting concerning Trump's divorce from former wife Ivana, who claimed during the divorce that Trump had raped her, a charge he vehemently denies.
Ivana later said that she meant that she felt "violated" during their marriage and that she hadn't intended her accusation to be taken in a "literal or criminal sense."

Trump's actions have inspired some to actually purchase Hurt's book.
