Donald Trump golf

President Donald Trump is being criticized for golfing during the late Sen. John McCain’s funeral on Saturday. Trump was reportedly asked not to attend the service. He spent the day at one of his golf courses in Sterling, Virginia, instead. Trump has spent 196 days at Trump properties and 153 days at golf properties, according to NBC. Trump once said that, as president, he was “not going to have time to go play golf,” but has spent more time doing so than his predecessors.

While DC heavyweights, former presidents, and celebrities gathered for the late Sen. John McCain’s funeral on Saturday, President Donald Trump went golfing.

Trump was reportedly asked not to attend the memorial service, as he and McCain were at odds until the war hero’s death a week ago. His daughter Ivanka Trump attended with her husband and fellow White House adviser Jared Kushner, and chief of staff John Kelly was there, too.See the rest of the story at Business Insider
