"I've played with lots of people in all walks of life and would welcome the day to play golf with him", Conner said.

The White House announced earlier in the week that the West Wing will undergo extensive renovations in Mr. Trump's absence, including upgrades to the facility's 27-year-old air-conditioning and heating systems, as well as the installation of new wiring, paint and carpets.

Trump's vacation, as The Washington Post's Philip Bump notes, is twice as long as the vacation President Barack Obama took to Martha's Vineyard in his first year in office - and will mean Trump has spent 53 "leisure" days through August 2017 as compared to 15 for Obama through August 2009. They are the words of a bigot who thinks that refugees are Muslims and all Muslims are terrorists.

And Trump's August getaway will likely cost another $40,000, McNamera says. "I would not be a president that takes time off". Trump tells Turnbull "I have had it" and ends the call. Although it isn't ideal for the leader of our country to go on a 17-day vacation, it was sort of acceptable until looking into Trump's past tweets. 'Don't take vacations, ' he wrote in 'Think Like A Billionaire.' What's the point?

President Donald Trump's golf game is back in the limelight this week thanks to a long feature by Alan Shipnuck in Sports Illustrated, echoing a recurring rumor that Trump's golf ethics are less than pristine.

Eight people claim to have heard Donald Trump call the White House a "dump" while playing a round of golf at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey. But he plays golf whenever he's at his clubs; sometimes it's the full 18 holes, other times less than that. Ronald Reagan rode horses at his mountain ranch in California. "The yellow carpet is worn, and it can sometimes be hard to work in parts of the White House because it fills with fumes when Marine One lands or takes off on the lawn of America's most famous home", Politico reported. "The West Wing is in need of some upkeep".

Presidents travel with the equivalent of a mini-White House made up of advisers, other aides and security. Repairmen and others are expected to work around the clock to complete the upgrades by August 21. The work of being president continues, and they must be prepared to handle a crisis at all hours and from wherever they are. Sure, everyone needs a vacation, but what's so peculiar about this one? It [sic] know it is good for you but it is bad for me.

A leaked transcript of a Donald Trump phone call shows the president's private comments about trade with Canada, and suggests he had an overwhelmingly positive attitude about the northern neighbour as he took office.
