Trump Vows To Get 'Back To Work' After Christmas, Plays Golf Instead

It was a fitting move for a man who has spent a large chunk of his presidency on his own golf courses.

President Donald Trump promised the entire country he would “get back to work” after Christmas but as usual he didn’t keep his word and hit his golf club instead.


While the entire country got back to work, the commander-in-chief left for Trump International Golf Club in Florida the day after Christmas.

Trump’s visit to the golf club marked his 85th day at one of his golf clubs since becoming president and his 111th day at a Trump property.

He wasn’t alone: Georgia Sen. David Perdue, PGA tour player Bryson DeChambeau and former pro golfer Dana Quigley accompanied him, according to the White House.

“I’ll be working very hard during that Christmas because we have many things we’re talking about, including North Korea, including a lot of things happening in the Middle East,” Trump told reporters before Christmas.

Last year, during his campaigns, the president made another empty promise, when he claimed he would largely give up the game if were elected president.

“I'm going to be working for you. I'm not going to have time to go play golf. Believe me," Trump said during an August 2016 rally in Virginia.

Trump actively criticized former President Barack Obama for spending too much time on the golf course. But the hypocrite president of America has reportedly spent more than 25% of his days as president at his golf clubs.
