The former world No. 1 golfer encouraged Americans to “come together and do what’s best for our country,” speaking to CNN’s Living Golf show in Dubai.
Woods was talking in the aftermath of President Trump’s controversial immigration ban
, which has caused ructions in the US and throughout the rest of the world.
Trump’s order has suspended the US refugee system for 120 days, suspended the Syrian refugee program indefinitely, and banned entry from seven Muslim countries — Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen — for 90 days, among other things.
“We need to unite, and be Americans,” said Woods, who played golf with the then president-elect
“I know there is a lot of divisiveness as of right now but time, patience and unity I think will win out.”
