As the President of the United States, Donald Trump is a very busy man.
But although he has made no mention of the man who burnt to death yesterday at his sprinkler-less apartment building or found time to have a single meeting before starting a trade war with China, he did find time to tweet congratulations to Patrick Reed, a golfer, on his big win in this weekend’s golf contest, The Masters.
Trump called it a “great and courageous” win—at golf.
Congratulations to Patrick Reed on his great and courageous MASTERS win! When Patrick had his amazing win at Doral 5 years ago, people saw his great talent, and a bright future ahead. Now he is the Masters Champion!

Donald trump loves golf, and has overcome the odds by spending every weekend at the Florida golf course he feared he’d never see again if he were president. U.S. taxpayers have paid $62 million to fund Trump’s golf games so far.
“I love golf, but if I were in the White House, I don’t think I’d ever see Turnberry again,” he said in February 2016, referring to the famous course he owns in Scotland. “I don’t think I’d ever see Doral again,” he said of the famous course he owns in Miami. “I don’t ever think I’d see anything — I just want to stay in the White House and work my ass off, make great deals, right?”
