President Trump returns to golf course - this time in Virginia

President Trump returns to golf course - this time in Virginia

Twitter Sunday evening rightfully went after Fox News for a unusual tweet that claimed President Donald Trump was spending the "weekend working at the White House".

Nathaniel Meyersohn of CNN's investigations team reports that the Secret Service has already spent $16,000 on golf cart rentals for Trump's trips to Mar-a-Lago. the Washington Post estimates that Trump's trips to the club cost taxpayers over $3 million a pop.

It was not immediately clear whether Trump was actually playing golf.

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer recently defended the president's golf outings by saying he takes meetings and calls at the club. For Trump, "it was just another weekend with a presidential-size spotlight on his family's business outlets", they write.

Trump's two trips to the Trump National Golf Course weren't his only visits to Trump-branded properties over the weekend.

That said, Obama was and Trump is certainly entitled to play golf, even on a weekly basis. Well, now he's president and it seems he has more than enough time for golf-more than once a week, in fact. In contrast to Trump, who golfs nearly exclusively at his own properties, appaemtluy causing taxpayer dollars the end his trips to be channeled into his own privately-held company, Obama never golfed at a course that he owns - because he doesn't own any.

On Saturday, Trump administration officials said the President was at the club for weekend meetings while the reporter pool was held at the club's tennis complex.

So far, President Donald Trump hasn't had much follow-through on his campaign promises to skip golfing and rarely leave the White House.

Trump has so far spent five of the 10 weekends since his inauguration at Mar-a-Lago, at an estimated cost to USA taxpayers of $3 million per visit.
