Cubs owner: ‘It’s a little surreal when Donald Trump threatens your mom’

Tom Ricketts, owner of the Chicago Cubs, said Wednesday that he found it “surreal” to have his mother threatened by Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump.

On Monday, the real estate baron tweeted:

Trump was referring to $3 million that Marlene Ricketts, the owner’s mother, donated to an anti-Trump PAC, The Associated Press reported.

“It’s a little surreal when Donald Trump threatens your mom,” Ricketts told reporters at the Cubs’ spring training camp in suburban Phoenix, Arizona.
