  • Donald Trump at US Open venue: Ultraviolet, a women's advocacy group protested against President

"You just can't expect peace and quiet when President Donald Trump comes to town", the magazine writes.

It was a family affair Sunday at President Trump's country club in Bedminster - with the notable exception of his embattled eldest son.

For their initial visit on the second day of the golf championship, Melania kept things low-key on arrival with a form-fitting, long-sleeved white shirt and high-waisted navy pants with a caramel belt.

Mr Trump said it was "very cool" to see all the support for him at the Bedminster course. The loud crowd that gathered to watch him at times distracted the golfers playing nearby, with club staff urging fans trying to win Trump's attention to be quiet during play.

The two viewed the event from a glass-enclosed viewing area, where his Melania Trump later appeared as well. And the Associated Press adds that it was "a security challenge". "He's enjoying", he said of the president, "so it's fun to be around". He's the first sitting president to attend a US Women's Open.

"America Lost Putin Won", read one sign - a nod to the intensifying inquiries into Russia's meddling in the 2016 election and potential collusion between Moscow and Trump campaign aides.

The brief White House statement said Ty Cobb a partner at the law firm Hogan Lovells in Washington will serve as a "key member of the White House staff" as special counsel.

They represented the women's rights organization UltraViolet, which had petitioned the U.S. Golf Association to move the championship from the Trump-owned course in light of vulgar comments he had made about women.
