LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Los Angeles Unified School District says donors will cover the $7,500 it lost by canceling a fundraiser at Donald Trump’s Southern California golf course.

The district said Thursday that developer Rick Caruso and Wetzel’s Pretzels have each pledged $7,500 for afterschool programs.

On Wednesday, the district announced it was nixing a November charity golfing event at Trump National Golf Course in Rancho Palos Verdes because of Trump’s disparaging remarks about Mexican immigrants.

The district said the golf course refused to return its $7,500 deposit.

Trump representatives didn’t return a request for comment.
