White House says underfire Trump campaign chair had 'very

  • Donald Trump Said He Had High Level Meetings All Day Saturday Then Went Golfing

The White House on Monday refused to back off Donald Trump's extraordinary and unfounded claim that Barack Obama wiretapped the phones in Trump Tower during the 2016 presidential campaign, despite the head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation saying he had "no information" to support the claim. Of the 11 trips to his Florida golf clubs, the White House has confirmed he played a round only three times, according to Knoller's tally.

But Donald Trump is more likely to say "Fore!"

Now that Trump is President, the comments are coming back to complicate his golf habit. "Obama's director of national intelligence said so and we take them at their word", said Spicer. Not recognizing the contradiction - or at least not mentioning it - Spicer said that the president was owed some privacy and that he wasn't having fun on the golf course - he was working!

The White House did not disclose whether Trump played golf over the weekend, but a photo posted on Twitter by Newsmax chief executive Christopher Ruddy, a friend of the president, showed Trump wearing a golfing glove and posing with two others at the club.

So why won't the White House be more forthcoming about his time on the course?

When asked whether he believes much of the mainstream media doesn't want Trump to succeed, Spicer said he thinks so. "One is, you saw him utilize this as an opportunity with [Japanese] Prime Minister [Shinzo] Abe to help foster deeper relationship.in Asia. and have a growing relationship that is going to help USA interests". He has visited the course all 10 times he has golfed since becoming President.

He said the mainstream media holds on to the narrative that there was contact between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation because they realize "it clearly gets them some kind of coverage of ratings". It is unclear whether he played.

Obama smiles while golfing on vacation.

"He played more golf previous year than Tiger Woods", Trump said of Obama in December after being elected president. "People jump to the conclusion he's going to play golf. We have to work".

"We pay for Obama's travel so he can fundraise millions so Democrats can run on lies", he tweeted the next day.

"President Obama has a major meeting on the N.Y.C. Ebola outbreak, with people flying in from all over the country, but made a decision to play golf!"

Trump's aides have not done so.
