President Donald Trump headed off to Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Virginia, on Sunday, October 8. According to Breanna Edwards of The Root, the presidential motorcade arrived at Trump National Golf Club at 10:52 a.m. By 2:44 p.m., reporters were not yet headed out of the golf club and rolling away, giving the President of the U.S. a good four hours at the course at least, even though the White House schedule did not mention that the president would visit the golf course on Sunday. The presidential motorcade left the Trump golf course at 3:18 p.m.
Indeed, one Getty Images photo shows President Trump making his way between a motorcade of at least two vehicles, wearing a standard white cap. Another photo shows President Trump’s armored SUVs outside of the Trump National Golf Club. Pool reporters waited in the indoor tennis club as they sought out more POTUS sightings. According to the below tweet by MSNBC producer Kyle Griffin, Sunday’s visit represented visit No. 70 for Trump to a golf course during his presidency. It also represented visit No. 90 for President Trump to a property emblazoned with Trump’s name since he became a world leader. The latest tweets about Trump’s golf course visits display a variety of thoughts about President Trump visiting golf courses so often.
Those tweets contain plenty of concern from Twitter users about the cost of Trump’s frequent visits to golf courses, on the heels of Trump having to deal with certain disastrously perceived visits to hurricane survivors, such as President Trump’s recent trip to Puerto Rico, where Trump threw paper towels at people in the crowd.
As reported by The Hill in the below tweet, President Trump had just visited the same golf club in Virginia on Saturday morning, prior to a Republican fundraiser Saturday evening. Whereas the publication noted that Trump wore a red USA hat upon leaving White House around 9 a.m. on Saturday morning, arriving at the Trump golf course right before 10 a.m., that was counted as visit No. 69. By Sunday, visit No. 70 was getting buzz online. Trump’s planned fundraising dinner in Greensboro, North Carolina, came complete with ticket costs ranging from $2,700 all the way up to $100,000 on Saturday night.
