Surprise: Donald Trump has spent 1/5 of his presidency at golf clubs
If there’s anything Donald Trump likes doing more watching cable news, it’s hitting the links.
Trump has spent 35 days at golf clubs since he became president, according to NBC News.
That’s a whopping 21 percent of the time he’s been in office, Vox calculated.
Now, it’s not totally clear how many of those days he actually went golfing. The White House often won’t confirm the president’s agenda when he visits places like the Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Florida, and Mar-a-Lago.
Though often times, the president’s secret excursions can’t escape the notice of social media.
But as of June 12, it was independently confirmed that Trump played golf at least 17 times since becoming president, according to PolitiFact. Barack Obama, by the way, only played golf five times during the same period of his presidencywhich you wouldn’t guess from Trump’s insults.
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

In fact, Trump has visited golf clubs at a greater rate than Bill Clinton and George W. Bush. Sadly, it’s not resulting in a happier, more relaxed Trump. Maybe he’ll retire early so he can spend all the time on the golf course that he wants.
