"Can you believe that, with all of the problems and difficulties facing the U.S., President Obama spent the day playing golf", Trump tweeted in October 2014, adding, "Worse than Carter".
And before he ran for president, Trump would tweet about Obama's golfing.
Donald Trump's frequent visits to Mar-a-Lago are an essential "part of being president", according to Press Secretary Sean Spicer in a White House press briefing held on Monday.
Spicer responded by arguing that Trump was using his time on the green to conduct serious presidential business that couldn't have occurred in say, the Oval Office.
According to estimates, his visits to Florida cost taxpayers several million dollars per weekend. He regularly used to criticize President Obama for spending time on the course.
"You saw him utilize this as an opportunity with [Japanese] Prime Minister [Shinzō] Abe to help foster a deeper relationship in southeast Asia, in Asia rather, and have a growing relationship that's going to help USA interests", Spicer said.
During his campaign, Donald Trump was a critic of President Barack Obama's penchant for hitting the links.
As White House correspondents have noted, the White House is apparently taking great lengths to keep Trump's frequent golf trips a secret. With visits to the links at Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach on both Saturday and Sunday, he brought the number of his golfing trips to 11 since taking office eight weeks ago.
The only time we saw him play golf with a leader, the president gave Japan's prime minister a pat on the shoulder.
So why won't the White House be more forthcoming about his time on the course? I know the pressures of the job, and to be able to get outside and play golf with some of your pals is important for the president. Here's what Spicer said in response. Spicer said. "How you use the game of golf is something that he's talked about". But that doesn't necessarily mean he's playing golf, Spicer said.
"The president is entitled to a little bit of privacy at some point", Spicer said.
Bush didn't visit a golf course until they were more than four and five months into their presidencies, respectively. Former President Ronald Reagan said "there are no degrees of honesty". "It would have been a mind-boggling event".
