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.

Big Ben has yet to confirm or deny the peculiar golfing tale.
