Donald Trump the Golfer

This president is the most vacationing-ass president in the history of presidents.

"What's striking with President Trump is not only how contained his travel has been, but how much of it is around campaign rallies, rather than something he wants to get done", said Dr Kathryn Dunn Tenpas, a Brookings Institution scholar who has studied presidential travel.

Former Obama official Chris Lu's suggestion to eliminate the White House suddenly seems very reasonable indeed.

Melania Trump and her son, Barron, traveled from the Trump Tower in NY to Mar-a-Lago on Friday.

So President Vladimir TrumPutin's orange ass is sitting oceanside in his mansion while the rest of the world is on pins and needles, and this is really what the right voted for? The president flew on Air Force One.

If he never took another trip to Mar-a-Lago, he would have to remain president for 171 years to make up the difference.

The Trump Organization, which operates the family's business empire, did not immediately respond to an email requesting comment.

Trump has been at his Palm Beach club since departing Washington on Thursday, the first trip he has made to Mar-a-Lago without any of his top West Wing advisers in attendance. On Sunday, the landing page showed a bold "Yes", indicating that Trump did, indeed, spend Easter weekend in Palm Beach. "You don't have time to take time off".

The Secret Service has even weighed in, saying they're stretched thin covering the Trump family.

Donald Trump also posted several political tweets amid his Easter celebrations, including two tweets about Saturday protests demanding that he release his tax returns, claiming the protestors were paid to be there and suggesting the tax return issue doesn't matter because he won the Electoral College.

He also defended his flip flop on his decision not to label China a currency manipulator.

With President Donald Trump spending many weekends away at his Mar-a-Lago club in Florida, the liberal Center for American Progress (CAP) Action Fund is launching a website to track the cost and timing of Mr. Trump's Palm Beach trips.

"One of the gravest threats to religious freedom remains the threat of terror", Trump said at the time.

"I can't think of anything like that we've seen at any time in the modern era", said Steve Schooner, a professor at George Washington Law School.

First Lady Melania and four of the president's children are joining him in Florida this weekend.
