Donald Trump's Presidency Slows His Business's Growth

She has also more recently called for the release of Trump's tax returns, according to Politico.

Obama's first game as president was April 26, 2009. He could've donated his salary 322 times over to the National Park Service rather than spend seven of his 13 weekends as president thus far hanging out at his own goddamn golf club. Since his inauguration, Donald has hosted several leaders around the world in his Mar-a-Lago resort, including Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and China's president, Xi Jinping.

And as president, Trump has continued to heavily patronize his own properties for recreation, most notably his club at Mar A Lago, which he visits near weekly.

A conservative watchdog group, Judicial Watch, estimated that Obama cost taxpayers $97 million in leisure travel costs during his two terms.

While former President George W. Bush stopped golfing early into his presidency, he was frequently criticized for the numerous vacations he took in office. But, what we now know - and what Trump hopes the world knows, too - is that his administration will look nearly nothing like the one that came before it.

That's not even the worst thing about all of Trump's Mar-a-Lago visits, though.

Trump was responding to a question about golfer Rory McIlroy, who came under fire on social media after playing a round of golf with the president.

Several years ago, Donald Trump joked during an interview, "It's very possible that I could be the first presidential candidate to run and make money on it".

The Republican "news media" has attempted to hide the amount of time Trump spends playing golf but periodically gets busted by the actual news media.

Being president may be the toughest, most stressful job in the world.

But Trump's love of leisure is yet another example of the gaping chasm between the kind of president he claimed he would be and the kind he actually is.

Cuomo spoke with William Hartung, director of the Arms and Security Project, who wrote a recent column about how Trump's recent activities regarding the Middle East and North Korea were part of his attempt to distract people from his failing policies.

Trump also promised a set of populist policies created to help the working class. Both his travel bans have been blocked by the courts, the GOP health care bill he endorsed was dead on arrival, and his foreign policy is now largely what he opposed during the campaign.
