Criticizing Obama’s golfing:
Before getting elected president, Trump had criticized his predecessor, Barack Obama, for golfing too often.
Last year, during a campaign rally Trump referred to his golf courses as he criticized Obama. He said “You know what – and I love golf – but if I were in the White House, I don’t think I’d ever see Turnberry again, I don’t think I’d ever see Doral again, I own Doral in Miami, I don’t think I’d ever see many of the places that I have.
“I don’t ever think that I’d see anything, I just wanna stay in the White House and work my ass off, make great deals, right? Who’s gonna leave? I mean, who’s gonna leave?”
According to The Washington Post, so far the President has visited his own-branded properties approximately once every three days during the course of his presidency.
Among his golfing partners were Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and champion professionals Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods.
