Remember when he promised he'd be too busy working to play golf?

So, he's not taking a salary. So what? He's making a hell of a lot more through his businesses.


"With his Thanksgiving vacation, President Donald Trump’s golf hobby has now cost Americans an estimated $115 million in travel and security expenses ― the equivalent of 287 years of the presidential salary he frequently boasts about not taking.


Of that amount, many hundreds of thousands ― perhaps millions ― of dollars have gone into his own cash registers, as Secret Service agents, White House staff and other administration officials stay and eat at his hotels and golf courses."

What is so obvious is this is one of the very first Trump (225 visits to HIS properties as of 11-27-19) lies to be confirmed when HE said on the campaign trail that HE wouldn't have time to waste as president. I've also included President Obama's golfing visits (mentioned in OP) which verify that he did indeed use mostly military golf courses in his 332 visits in 8 years.
:cool:

on the bright side, anything that gets trump away from "doing" his job as President in the White House is far out and groovy. I am more amazed every day that even the most persistently dull and dimwitted Trump voters can still try to defend this POS.

America's stupid fault in allowing presidents to spend money on golf. If you do what you've always done, you will get what you've always got.
