Donald Trump recalls bizarre story about golfing with Ben Roethlisberger

Following Sunday's debate, Trump stopped in the nearby Pittsburgh town of Ambridge, PA -- and in an attempt to make peace with the Steelers fan-filled crowd, he recalled a story about a time he and "friend" Ben Roethlisberger played a round of golf together.

"He once hit a shot that went dead right into a tree," Trump said. "The ball hit the tree so hard I swear I said, 'Ben, within two years, that tree is gonna be dead.'"

And, according to Trump, that tree was dead two years later.
