President Trump returns to golf course - this time in Virginia

President Trump returns to golf course - this time in Virginia

It was labeled "absurd" and "propaganda" by some, back up by photos of the president at his golf range in Virginia, which he visited both Saturday and Sunday.

It's worth noting that Trump took many opportunities to insult former President Barack Obama for playing golf during his presidency. Club members told Jennifer Jacobs of Bloomberg that Trump indeed played a full 18 holes "with the club pro and a club members". Trump left after four-and-a-half hours at the club, basically long enough to play a round of golf.

"How you use the game of golf is something that he's talked about", Spicer said at a press conference earlier this month, according to the Washington Post.

But photographs posted on social media Saturday afternoon showed Trump in golf attire, including cleats, and traveling around the property in a golf cart. Well, now he's president and it seems he has more than enough time for golf-more than once a week, in fact.

While the President hasn't played golf on every visit, sometimes attending to presidential business, the trips underscore a break with his insistence on the campaign trail that he wouldn't spend his time golfing because of how hard he would be working. After describing a visit to the "devastation" in flood-overcome Louisiana, Trump proclaimed that Obama "ought to get off the golf course and get down there".

Although Trump did not fly to his Florida resort on Saturday, as he's done for the last several weekends, he still enjoyed time at one of his properties - the Trump National Golf Club in Potomac Falls.

Though Trump did not attend, his wife Melania did make an appearance at the Mar-a-Lago event.
