President Donald Trump has spent nearly 20 percent of his first 100 days as president on a golf course. That, of course, does not mean he was playing golf on each one of those days, but.
Reporter Mark Knoller told the New York Times that Trump has played golf at least 17 of the 19 days he has traveled to a golf course. Trump maintains that he is using his golf habit and his golf courses to forge relationships and help the country.
"I have a lot of property. So if I go to my clubs like in New Jersey, they'll say, 'Oh, he is going to play golf.' I am not going to play golf. I couldn't care less about golf," Trump said during an interview on Fox News, via The Hill. "But I have a place there that costs almost nothing because its hundreds of acres and security and they don't have to close up streets."
The not caring less about golf is a dubious statement. There's nothing inherently wrong with caring about golf, and it's pretty clear Trump loves the game just like the rest of us and wants to play as much as possible.
I get that it is maybe a bad look for him to admit this, but that doesn't mean it's not true. And if Trump's golf outing count is any indication, it definitely is true that he's hopelessly devoted to the game like so many others. Even as President of the United States.
