I already spelled out the reason. He left a perfectly adequate White House to shore up his failing golf courses. He rents out the accommodation for his entourage and protection squad. Profiteering every trip.
More BS and hate Trump

Weirdo
- Donald Trump said "I will be too busy working for you to play golf." Trump has smashed records held by every other president for the number of golf trips he has made.
- Trump lambasted President Obama dozens of times for playing too much golf. Trump has made 3 times as many golf trips as Obama had at this point in his presidency.
- President Obama played more than 80% of his golf games on military and public courses, where the costs are free or minimal. Trump has played 100% of his games at private resorts owned by Donald Trump, where he has charged the US government more than $500,000. for golf cart rentals, plus untold $$millions in room and meal fees for Secret Service, staff, and entourage.
- Trump tried to claim that his golf outings were going to be mostly about meeting with world leaders. He has played golf with one world leader - Japan's Abe. 90% of his golf partners are Republican politicians, lawyers, business execs, athletes, and rightwing media figures. Also Kid Rock.
- Donald Trump has created a $95,000. per year position for a person called "White House sports liason", whose job it is to coordinate Trump's photo ops and golf games with athletes. The position is held by Andy Giuliani, Trump's lawyer's son.

So there you have it - "I'll be too busy to play golf" Donald Trump smashing records for playing golf while stuffing his pockets with taxpayer money.

The whole "president is playing golf" thing didn't work during Ronald, George 1, Clinton, George 2 nor Barrack eras.

To pull that out now is kinda weak.

No?

Per the link in post #18:

President Trump’s golfing habit has cost the U.S. tax payer an estimated $97,000,000

President Obama’s golfing habit over the same time period cost U.S. tax payers an estimated $23,370,000.
Trump should have shut his mouth when he put down Obama for golfing. But then again he knows his base and they will deny what they see and hear
