While running for office, Republican President Donald Trump stated “he would rarely play golf — ‘I’m not going to have time to go play golf,’ he once said — and he certainly wasn’t going to take a lot of vacation. (‘There’s just so much to be done,’ he told “60 Minutes,” ‘so I don’t think we’ll be very big on vacations.’),” The Washington Post reports.
“On Friday, Trump will head to his golf course in Bedminster, N.J., for a 17-day vacation. That’s nearly twice as long as the vacation Obama took in August during his first year in office, when he went to Martha’s Vineyard.”
“By our count, by the end of August, Trump will have spent all or part of 53 days in office at leisure, compared with 15 days for Obama through August 2009. What’s more, Trump will have played at least 33 rounds of golf, nearly double Obama’s 17 rounds — and that’s even before Trump gets to his vacation spot, an actual golf course.”
