    The ‘Vacation’ president who claimed in 2016 that he would be to busy working for the American people to play Golf, has now spent nearly 1/3 of his time as President Vacationing at his Golf resorts. That’s 100 days during his first 13 months in office.

    By comparison, Obama, took 29 vacation trips spanning all or part of 235 days over the course of 8 years.

    So, Trump is nearly half that in 1 year. It amazes me that people still defend this guy. Now granted President’s do work while on vacation, but we take that into account for every president. The difference here is, Trump claimed he wouldn’t be golfing at all, while criticizing Obama all the time. I guess it’s ok though when he’s the one golfing with pro golfers nearly every weekend at one of his own resorts.

    And I’ll quote Trump now: “I would rarely leave the White House because there’s so much work to be done,” Trump told The Hill in 2015. “I would not be a president who took vacations. I would not be a president that takes time off.” While campaigning for the presidency in 2016, Trump said to the American people: “I’m going to be working for you. I’m not going to have time to go play golf.”

    No surprise that he was lying about this, as with most everything else. Additionally, he personally profits every time he goes to one of his resorts. The Trump administration is rife with conflicts of interest because he, Jared and Ivanka have not divested from their businesses.

    Does anyone expect Trump to tell the truth... about anything?

    Good lord. I’ve never seen this much butt hurt.

    I think it’s time the mods make a sticky “ I hate Trump” thread.

    I've never seen so much deflection and mental gymnastics.

    I guess you slept through Obama’s 8 years. Have anything to say about the actual Topic here?

    Yeah, it’s hard to believe that so many people are actually upset about the catastrophe going on in the White House.

    He doesn't, hence the deflection.

    I think the more time he’s out on be golf course the less opportunity he has to embarrass himself, humiliate our country, and make terrible decisions.

    Let him play all the golf he wants.

    See, it’s all about how you frame things in life.

    Plus watching Fox and Friends, Hannity, Tucker Carlson and tweeting that’s like another 7 hours of “executive time” right there. All in all I think he spends more time whining about how things are instead of trying to really change them.

    I know right? This forum is loaded with such nonsense. Build a sticky thread for frothing. We don’t need 100 threads on the same issue.

    We also don’t need a president who spends more time golfing and tweeting than being a leader but here we are.

    So far Trump has spent more time golfing in one year than Obama has in 8. Obama has also tweeted less in 8 years than Trump does on one day. I’m all for comparisons but there really should be a shred of truth when making them.

    I’m sure Trump pays for his golf, unlike Obama.

    Trump diehard supporters simply don’t believe these facts. Anything anti-Trump is seen as fake news.

    What the US needs is a completely independent organisation that could provide these facts as well as the proof. Build up a factual website of Trumps lies with all the evidence.

    I’d do it, but the US is suffering enough from ‘outside interference’.

    You do know that the US government actually pays Trump every time he golfs on one of his own courses, right?

    So what. You guys can’t help yourselves with the pettiness on everything from soup to nuts. It’s comical.
