Donald Trump says he'll play golf 'quickly' before getting back to work

On Nov. 22, Trump began his Thanksgiving holiday in Florida by asserting on Twitter that he would spend his time "having meetings and working the phones from the Winter White House in Florida (Mar-a-Lago)".

"I will get it all done, but what a mistake, in lives and dollars (6 trillion), to be there in the first place!" the President tweeted.

President Donald Trump spent Black Friday on the golf course where he took in a round with professional golfers Dustin Johnson and Tiger Woods.

"Today is the 100th day on which Trump has visited a Trump property as president", Bump wrote.

According to Politifact, Trump teed off 35 times between the day he took office and November 13, while Obama had golfed 24 times at the same point in his presidency. Trump has used the $6 trillion figure to describe US spending on Middle East conflicts, though fact checkers have said the number is only partially accurate, since it falls on the high end of analysts' estimates and includes future costs, such as future medical care and disability benefits as well as nation-building costs.

Donald Trump broke with White House custom on Friday by admitting he was playing golf.

While this is Trump's first time publicly playing golf with Woods and Johnson as president, former President Barack Obama went on a golf trip with Woods in Florida.

"And the top four golfers - one, two, three, four - the top four were from Korea".

Trump also used his early-morning Twitter blast to yet again denounce NFL players who kneel during the national anthem.

Johnson is now ranked first in the World Golf Rankings.

Trump also turned on National Basketball Association star Stephen Curry back in September after Curry, a guard with the Golden State Warriors, suggested he would not attend the traditional White House champions visit.

Friday afternoon, CNN couldn't help but collect a montage of all of the times Trump has spent doing exactly the opposite. Despite his pre-presidential proclamation, he is on the greens very frequently, with Gold News tracking the president on the golf courses more than 70 times in less than one year.
