Johnson transferred day-to-day operations of the Jets to his brother, Christopher, when he assumed the role of USA ambassador in 2017.
However the publication points out that the statement did not acknowledge whether Johnson mentioned Turnberry, which Trump took ownership of in 2014.
"I reported the conversation to Washington, but I don't believe anyone there talked to him about it".
The denial goes further than the reaction from Mr Johnson, the US Embassy in London and the State Department, all three of which did not issue a denial when the report first ran on Tuesday. One source also said at certain public events, Johnson would begin his remarks with quips about the many pretty women that were present, reducing them to decorative objects in a fashion that a source labeled "just sort of cringeworthy".
That former employee and the other officials were not authorised to discuss the ongoing inspector general report and spoke on the condition of anonymity.
In a statement, the United Kingdom government denied those claims, saying "Mr. Johnson made no request of Mr. Mundell regarding the British Open or any other sporting event".Читайте также: Shraddha Kapoor urges people to watch Dil Bechara
But Wednesday afternoon, he tweeted, "I have followed the ethical rules and requirements of my office at all times".
"The Fritz Pollard Alliance is deeply troubled by allegations of insensitive remarks about race and gender made by (Johnson)." the statement said.
Trump added: 'It is a highly respected course, one of the best in the world'. And I read it.
"We are aware of the report and would refer you to the State Department", the National Football League said in a written statement.
A State Department spokesperson called Johnson "a valued member of the team" who has led "honorably and professionally".
ABC also confirmed there is a current inspector general investigation into the USA embassy in the United Kingdom, although the scope of that investigation is unclear.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
