Fake news outlet said that President Donald Trump was golfing this past weekend. This is an attempt by liberal media to create an image of a lazy President who is not always on duty and takes too much personal time.
Well, before they start with the slander, maybe they should get their facts straight. The Daily News went so far as to Tweet a picture of President Trump golfing, saying that he was out for the ‘9th time in 7 weeks.’
Unfortunately for them, Dan Scavino Jr, the White House Director of Social Media, pointed out that the only reason that President Donald Trump appeared on that golf course was for a lunch meeting, saying ‘your headline and story is false’ and ‘you should correct.’
While Trump was at Trump National Golf Club in Potomac Falls, Va. to meet with members of his Cabinet on Saturday, he did not actually play golf. The Daily News, however, used the meeting venue to tee off on Trump. It must be Saturday–the president went golfing. President Trump–who regularly lambasted his predecessor for spending too much time playing the sport–is golfing for the ninth time since taking office seven weeks ago. The president is golfing at Trump National Golf Club in Potomac Falls, Va., lunching with a few members of his Cabinet–and taking the time to OK the firing of U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara. So far, Trump is teed up to be one of the most prolific golfers to hold the Oval Office.
The Hill also reported on Trump’s visit to his golf club. The report discussed the president meeting with members of his Cabinet, but the Hill used an old picture of Trump playing golf on its Twitter account, potentially leading viewers to assume that he was out golfing again rather than conducting business.
