According to CNN’s tally, by the end of 2019, Trump had “spent at least 252 days at a Trump golf club and 333 days at a Trump property as president.”

“This year alone, he spent at least 86 days at a golf club, despite a late start due to the government shutdown. The golf excursions have included the Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Virginia; his Bedminister, New Jersey, golf club; Trump National Doral outside Miami; and Trump International Doonbeg in Ireland,” CNN reported.
