The Hill reports:
Trump played “a couple of holes” on Saturday and Sunday while staying at his resort Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Fla., the White House told reporters.
Trump played golf with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe last weekend and also hit the links the weekend prior, both times at Mar-a-Lago.
Trump has referred to his resort as the “Winter White House” and “Southern White House.” After Trump took office, Mar-a-Lago doubled membership rates to $200,000 a year.
Trump held a campaign-like rally in Florida on Saturday, where about 9,000 supporters gathered.
Throughout former President Barack Obama’s eight years in the White House, Trump criticized him for taking breaks from his work to go on vacation and play golf.
