Former President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that he believes pro-golfer Tiger Woods will play again after he was in a serious car accident earlier this week.

Woods was involved in a single-car rollover accident in the Los Angeles area, receiving multiple injuries.

Trump told Fox News host Katie Pavlich that Woods will recover.

"I hope so, he has overcome a lot, but he has had an incredible life and he is going to continue to have an incredible life," Trump said, adding, "But now he will recover from this and it is pretty bad on the legs, I understand. And you know, he will figure a way. But he is a wonderful person. Aside from everything else, he is a wonderful person."

Trump awarded Woods with the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2019, one of four golfers to receive the honor.

"I've known him for a long time, and he was just always great to me and I have always felt the same with him I have always just liked him. You know? We had a good chemistry and always have and I am just you know, I'm a fan of his and as a golfer he is just incredible," Trump said.

Trump said he has "no doubt" that the golfer will recover.

"He is a very respected person. He is so respected by the other players, they idolize him," Trump said. "And he's gonna be back. I have no doubt about it. He's gonna be back."

Pavlich then asked Trump what he would like to say to the golfer.

"All I'd say is get better and get out there, because we all miss him," Trump said.
