Here you will find a page from Independent. I’ll give a few quotes just to whet your appetite. Emphasis mine.
First, let’s quote Donald Trump.
During a campaign rally last year, Mr Trump referred to his golf courses when he criticised Mr Obama. “You know what – and I love golf – but if I were in the White House, I don’t think I’d ever see Turnberry again, I don’t think I’d ever see Doral again, I own Doral in Miami, I don’t think I’d ever see many of the places that I have, I don’t ever think that I’d see anything, I just wanna stay in the White House and work my ass off, make great deals, right? Whose gonna leave? I mean, whose gonna leave?”
Now, what is The Donald actually doing?
The White House press office, whose job includes keeping the media informed of the President’s diary, did not comment on this latest golf trip. It has only confirmed that Mr Trump has played golf on a few occasions when he has stayed at a Trump-branded property. The President has visited his own-branded properties approximately once every three days during the course of his presidency so far, according to The Washington Post.
Back to Obama:
Mr Obama is not believed to have played his first round of golf until his 65th day in the White House.
Back to Trump,
Some have complained that Mr Trump’s golf trips are a waste of tax payers’ money, with each trip to his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida estimated to cost the US Government around $2 million, mainly for the cost of transportation.
I suspect golf course scores are subject to Douglas Adams’ distortion field: as in restaurants, math may not always work there. But.
On calendars, it’s not so easy to move numbers around.
My conclusion: the new POTUS is playing more because he’s simply fundamentally more entitled. Or perhaps his ‘ass‘ ‘works off‘ more easily than the previous POTUS.
