Trump returns to Palm Beach golf club on Sunday

Donald Trump has spent the day Saturday at his golf club in West Palm Beach, realizing his 81st day in one of his golf clubs since he is the president.

For comparison's sake, at this point in his presidency, Obama had played 26 rounds of golf, according to CBS News' Mark Knoller. However, Washington Post national correspondent Philip Bump estimated that Trump played his 64th round of golf as president over the weekend.

He arrived at Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach on Sunday morning, according to a White House press pool report.

With placards saying "Don the Con Man", and "I support Pres. Trump bigly" a small group of protesters waited for Trump on the motorcade route. On Friday, he played with Tiger Woods and Dustin Johnson, and on Saturday with Jack Nicklaus.

Trump regularly spends his weekends at a golf course, but the White House typically declines to confirm that the Republican president is, in fact, golfing. He had stopped playing after the October 13, 2003, after having been critical because he was playing golf while the country was at war. This is already more than the amount of time, ex-president, George W. Bush spent in his eight years in office. Mr. Bush, meanwhile, played only 24 rounds of golf while he was president. But because I'm going to be working for you, I'm not going to have time to go golfing, believe me.

Mark Knoller of CBS News who keeps detailed statistics of presidencies also confirmed that Trump's first year in office, playing golf had surpassed every US president, living or dead.
