According to Bloomberg News (and other sources), Donald Trump headed to the Trump National Golf Club in suburban Virginia today.
President Donald Trump headed to the golf course for the first time in over two months, engaging in his personal passion as well as attempting to show how the country can return to normal after stay-at-home orders taken against the coronavirus.
Trump arrived at the Trump National Golf Club in suburban Virginia around 10:30 a.m. on Saturday. He was spotted earlier wearing a white polo shirt and signature white “Make America Great Again” cap. The White House doesn’t always confirm Trump’s activities while at his golf courses.
The president’s most recent golf outing was March 8 at the Trump International course in West Palm Beach, Florida. He teed it up with members of the World Series-winning Washington Nationals baseball team, according to images posted by the players on social media. Trump played at the same course on March 7.
In 2014, Trump criticized President Barack Obama for playing golf when there were TWO cases of Ebola in the U.S.
As of today, there are 1.6 million cases of COVID-19 which has claimed the lives of nearly 100,000 Americans.
And according to the most recent report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the unemployment rate has soared to 14.7 percent.
But in 2014, when the unemployment rate was 5.8 percent and the Ebola outbreak had been contained, Trump took time to criticize Obama…?
Trump is golfing today.
In 2014 on Fox and Friends he criticized Obama for golfing when there were *two cases* of Ebola in the United States saying, “it sends the wrong signal” and he should have given up golf as president “to really focus on the job.” https://t.co/br8jLwVLts pic.twitter.com/Jmh5CSt2mp
