President Donald Trump was criticized on Saturday for spending his day golfing while Turkey “slaughtered” America’s Kurdish allies in Syria.
According to the White House pool report, Trump was spotted in “golf gear and a red cap” as his motorcade left the White House for Trump National Golf Club. There was “a giant inflatable Trump rat at the entrance of the club” and signings reading “resign” and “traitor.”
There are conflicting accounts as to how many hundreds of days Trump has spent at one of his golf course as president.
Huffington Post White House correspondent S.V. Dáte said it was Trump’s 220th day at a golf course he owns. Robert Maquire, the research director at Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) said it was Trump’s 233rd trip to one of his golf courses as president. MSNBC producer Kyle Griffin scored it as Trump’s 236th day at a Trump golf course.
Trump was criticized for golfing after causing a humanitarian crisis in Syria.
