President Trump returns to golf course - this time in Virginia

President Trump returns to golf course - this time in Virginia

This marks yet another weekend during which the Trump administration appears to have lied about knowing that President Trump was playing golf.

The White House said that Trump's golf trip actually was a series of meetings, but photos posted on Instagram and Twitter show that the president was hitting the links.

Trump has faced many backlashes over his golfing habits, but according to White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, the president doesn't always play golf. He has done so on 21 of the 66 days he has been in office, according to the Washington Post.

Needless to say, the social media reaction was swift against Fox News, whose commentators have staunchly defended Trump and his White House.

Trump then returned to his Virginia golf course on Sunday morning. The White House reported that the president was there to hold three meetings at the clubhouse.

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. Well, now he's president and it seems he has more than enough time for golf-more than once a week, in fact.

That said, Obama was and Trump is certainly entitled to play golf, even on a weekly basis.

"That's the one thing about golf - you get to know somebody better on a golf course than you will over lunch", he said.

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