While supporters tweeted Trump deserves a break.

"Then back to Mar-a-Lago for talks on bringing even more jobs and companies back to the United States of America!", he added.

Donald Trump was mocked on Twitter today (24 November) after he gave details of his latest trip to the golf course.

President Donald Trump continued his holiday Twitter marathon on Friday, slamming National Football League players for their persistent protesting and also revealing plans to hit the links with two professional golfers.

Since taking office, Trump has rarely acknowledged playing golf.

The US president is about to play around of golf with two of the sport's legends.

Woods has spent most of the last year rehabbing from back surgery, and hasn't played a competitive, injury-free year of golf since 2013. Trump tweeted more than 25 times about his predecessors golfing habits from 2012 through 2016.

I thought "After Turkey call" was Thanksgiving-related the first three times I read this tweet, but Trump had just tweeted he has a phone call with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, which makes more sense I guess.

The threesome played at the Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter, Fla., about 20 miles north of the presidential retreat at Mar-a-Lago. He would fit in a quick round with Tiger Woods, he said, after seeking peace in the Middle East.

Trump claims that there is a firewall between him and the operations of the Trump Organization while he is in the White House, but there is evidence to the contrary, including admissions by his sons that they speak frequently with their father about the business.

Abut 90 minutes later, however, the press poll noted the motorcade arriving at a Trump golf club near West Palm Beach and left some five hours later, the New York Post reported.
