After what must have been an exhausting night at his self-congratulatory rally, Trump is spending today on the golf course.
Trump arrived at the Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Virginia at 11:30am today, marking his 20th trip to a golf course since the beginning of his presidency.
By my count, this is Pres Trump's 20th visit to one of his golf clubs in VA or FL.

While the White House hasn’t announced whether Trump is golfing or “conducting meetings,” if there is one thing that precedent has shown to the American people, it’s that our Commander-in-chief will take every opportunity he can to get on the links. At this point in Barack Obama’s presidency, he hadn’t been to the golf course even once.
After Trump recently admitted that he thought being President “would be easier,” it’s hard to imagine what he would be saying if he didn’t spend approximately 30 percent of his presidency on vacation.
Trump’s latest golf outing comes on the heels of his campaign-style rally in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, where he spoke to his supporters about all of the things he will accomplish as President, instead of working in Washington, D.C. to actually accomplish those things as President.
Of all his faults, though, Trump was honest about one thing. He said, “I’m a good golfer, believe it or not.” If there is one thing we can believe, that is it.
