CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — A triathlon scheduled for a Trump National golf course in North Carolina has been canceled just days after the race director changed the name of the event to distance it from President Donald Trump’s name.

The Charlotte Observer reports “Tri at the Trump,” was scheduled for Oct. 8. Race organizer Chuck McAllister said he received several complaints over the summer about the name of the race. On Tuesday, McAllister announced the name had been changed to “Tri for Good.”

On Saturday, McAllister decided to cancel the race, not wanting the event to become even more politicized.

The race benefits children who have cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. This year would have been the triathlon’s fourth year.

McAllister said he intends to bring the race back in 2018.

    They should’ve named the event; The I.B.A.H.S. event, which means, “I Believe Anything Hillary Says” and none of the left-wingers would’ve complained like they did over Trumps name being in the title.
    But, it’s okay to use Trumps name in every sentence uttered at the Clammy Emmys…..Geeeeeeez! I’ve never seen such hatred spewed by people that say they hate the hate word so much! I grew up knowing that sort of behavior as being a “Hypocritical”, which makes them all “Hypocrites”! No wonder the democratic party is in a death spiral, they’re running out of air!

    I can’t help but think of the Progressive protestors who would have showed up to make noise.

      It wasn’t McCallister’s fault. The fault lies in the people with TDS, Trump Derangement syndrome. Did you read the article? People were complaining about Trump’s name in the title.
