Every president plays golf. Barack golfed quite a bit himself. I did find it funny however that President Trump tweeted "Back to work tomorrow" on Christmas day, and then proceeded to play golf four days in a row. Not exactly a man of his word, is he?


This is only a big deal only because Donald Trump vowed to be "too busy to play golf" on the campaign trail, and made such a fuss about President Obama playing golf. I would imagine that if Hillary or Bernie were playing as much golf as POTUS has been, most republicans would be complaining about it.

He has played 90 rounds on our dime, President Obama played 30 at this time in his first term. Trump is an international joke and national embarrassment.

Obama never profited from his vacations. Trump does...and to the tune of millions of dollars.

The question is are we getting our moneys worth of anti-socialist policy's ? The answer is clearly, YES !!!

Its strange that the collective wants everyone to share the cost of things and when we do it with presidential vacations as we have in the past. They object to it.
Weird, very weird !!! The left doesn't seem to believe in their own ideas and concepts. Obviously they have become dysfunctional. They don't know if they want to skip rope or smoke dope. Skipping rope would be good for them but smoking dope would be good for the right. We can distract them with a bag of chips.
We don't have to spend anything in the process. Just take the bag of chips off their shoulder and put it in front of their face.

Republicans were PISSED about Obama's vacations. Now that Trump takes four times as many not a peep from any of them. Lots of "He deserves a break!" while he gets nothing done in Washington.

And Trump racks up a tab and charges the US government for use of the facility, money that goes into his pocket . Nice try, though.

Our dime is spent on transportation and security. It doesn't matter where the President ends up- any vacation one takes costs us a lot because a lot of other people always accompany any President wherever he goes.

Obama's vacation spot in Hawaii wasn't as exposed as Mar-a-Lago is. It takes a full contingent of Coast Guard patrolling the nearby ocean to protect Trump. Obama only needed a handful of Secret Service men. Try paying the fuel bill for a Coast Guard cutter sometime, and you will know the difference.

It's the frequency of the vacations that stack the costs up. Trump has taken over 3 times more vacation than any of our others have taken. George Bush is next, but Trump has taken twice as many days as Bush did.

Golf has always been a popular Presidential pastime, but all the other presidents played on the cheap. Trump spends our money like it was water, and has taken more time off now, in only a year, than any other president ever did in a 4-year term.

And all of our money he spends ultimately goes into his pockets, not back to the Treasury. That's something no other president has ever done, either.

Yep, I think he spent most of his time at his gulf clubs instead. 347 days in office 117 days spent at a Trump property and 91 days at his golf properties. " However, the number of times Trump has played golf is difficult to track. His administration has tried to hide Trump's activity, keeping his press pool away and often refusing to confirm whether he has played golf." Tracking President Trump's Visits to Trump Properties Politics NBC News

But that's okay as long as it's not Obama right?
