New York, NY, United States (4E) – “Lazy boy” Donald Trump has spent one third of his days as president on golf programs he owns, and has performed extra golf than former president Barack Obama over the identical span of time.
Trump wasted 88 days of his presidency enjoying golf, largely with mates and enterprise companions, and is not doing enterprise similtaneously his apologist would have us consider. There have been 333 days from Jan. 1 to Nov. 30.
Of the 88 days, Trump spent half or all of about 40 days on the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey.
Fact checking group PolitiFact found that Trump performed golf 35 instances as of November, whereas Obama solely performed 24 instances by the identical level of his presidency.
When not at Bedminster, Trump hits the greens at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida. American taxpayers paid over $6.6 million in airfare this yr for Trump’s frequent journeys to Mar-a-Lago, in keeping with U.S. Air Force data.
Except for the 17 days in August he spent at Bedminster and his Thanksgiving and Christmas breaks, Trump normally visits his properties on weekends.
Trump has visited his properties for a complete of 112 days, in keeping with a depend by NBC News.
Trump continuously blasted Obama for the latter’s golfing.
“Can you believe that, with all of the problems and difficulties facing the U.S., President Obama spent the day playing golf. Worse than Carter,” tweeted Trump in 2014.
In 2016, Trump promised, “I’m going to be working for you. I’m not going to have time to play golf.”
Trump’s hypocrisy on this regard was once more uncovered on Dec. 26 when he hit the hyperlinks at Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Florida round 9:00 a.m. after tweeting he was heading “back to work in order to Make America Great Again (which is happening faster than anyone anticipated)!”
Seems that Trump spells w-o-r-k as g-o-l-f.
