“This is Trump’s 23rd golf trip since taking over the White House,” The Hill reported Sunday. “[President Barack] Obama reportedly averaged 41 golf club visits per year as president.”
“Trump National has a beautiful and prestigious setting with magnificent frontage on the Potomac River,” according to the website.
The private club includes “two world class golf courses” as well as “swimming, state of the art indoor and outdoor tennis facilities, a fitness center, and a variety of dining and social events.”
