Presidents generally take a vacation in August, and Trump is no different. Last week, 45 left the White House to head for his golf course in Bedminster, New Jersey, where he’s set to spend 17 days on what he’s dubbed a “working vacation.”
He wrote on Twitter:
‘Working hard from New Jersey while White House goes through long planned renovation. Going to New York next week for more meetings.’

Given the fact that he’s residing at a golf course, the world has essentially been waiting for him to T-off like the true hypocrite he really is. Well, fear not. On Wednesday afternoon, an Instagram user posted a photo of himself beside President Trump at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster.
Instagram user mikefaz1215 captioned the photo:
‘Fantastic day golfing with #45 @realdonaldtrump at Trump Bedminster today. We had an exciting match which came down to the 18th hole. I want to thank my good friend @newyorkrei for setting up such an awesome day. #Trump #POTUS #GOLF #USA #MAGA’

The White House has refused to say whether or not Trump is playing golf, according to reports from The Hill, although it has clearly just been proven that he is.
Despite his insistence that his trip isn’t a vacation, Trump’s team has done almost nothing to prove otherwise. His schedule remained almost completely open over the weekend, and entirely open on Monday. Over all, the White House has remained fairly tight-lipped regarding the happenings of Trump’s not-a-vacation-vacation.
On Tuesday, reporters were able to see the president during a press briefing on opioid addiction. In true Trump form, he sent the media into a firestorm when he issued a threat to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un after a report from The Washington Post revealed that Pyongyang had successfully created a nuclear warhead small enough to fit inside of a ballistic missile.
Trump told reporters present at his golf course in Bedminster, N.J.:
‘North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States — they will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen. He has been very threatening — beyond a normal state — and as I said they will be met with fire, fury and frankly power, the likes of which this world has never seen before.’
