Washington (AFP) - A strip club said Wednesday that a charity golf tournament that was to be held at one of US President Donald Trump's courses has been canceled.

The event at the Trump National Doral course in Florida was to raise money for a local charity and was offering players the "caddy girl of your choice," according to Shadow Cabaret, the Miami-area club that organized it.

"Due to the climate of everything surrounding our golf tournament, Shadow Cabaret has decided to cancel the event. We want to apologize to anyone that may have been offended by the tournament," it said on its Facebook page.

Shadow Cabaret's website billed the tournament as "Miami's sexiest charity event of 2019" and featured a pink lipstick kiss imprint on a golf ball in a flyer-like announcement that also included the Trump family crest in the bottom right corner.

The event was to kick off with "meet your caddy girl" on Friday, followed by the tournament and a "gala show" on Saturday, the announcement said.

The Trump Organization and the Miami Allstars Foundation -- the basketball-related non-profit that was to benefit from the event -- also announced the cancelation, according to the Washington Post.

The Post reported Wednesday that Carlos Alamilla, the director of Miami Allstars, had paid little attention to the planned event and not seen the advertisements until the newspaper called him.

After that, he called the club and said: "We're not participating, and I think you should cancel the event," the Post said.

The Trump Organization said in a statement carried by US media that since "the charity has removed its affiliation, the event will no longer be taking place at our property and all amounts paid will be refunded."

"Our intention was to raise money for a deserving local charity. Trump Doral, the hotel, has no association with our company outside of simply allowing us to rent the golf course," Shadow Cabaret said.

Somali-born U.S. congresswoman Ilhan Omar is "lucky to be where she is," President Donald Trump said on Friday, pressing on with attacks on four minority women Democratic U.S. representatives he has said should "go back" to where they came from. Trump on Thursday sought to distance himself from supporters' chants of "send her back" at a rally where he blasted Omar, as his fellow Republicans worried the sharp rhetoric might become a theme of his 2020 re-election campaign. "I'm unhappy when a congresswoman goes and says: 'I'm going to be the president's nightmare,'" Trump told reporter at the White House on Friday.

US-listed Brazilian state oil giant Petrobras said Friday it will not refuel two Iranian vessels that have been stuck for weeks at a Brazilian port for fear of violating American sanctions. Washington has imposed a slate of sanctions on Tehran and companies with ties to the Islamic republic since President Donald Trump pulled the United States out of a landmark nuclear pact last year. The ships Bavand and Termeh, which reportedly belong to Iranian company Sapid Shipping, arrived at Paranagua port in the southern state of Parana early last month, an official at the port told AFP.
