Donald Trump tweeted earlier this week that he would be working for the entire long President’s Day weekend, but that isn’t the case. A reporter just leaked that Trump hit the golf course for the third weekend in a row.
Trump played “a couple of holes” on Saturday and Sunday while staying at his resort Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Fla., the White House told reporters.

Trump played golf with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe last weekend and also hit the course the weekend prior, both times at Mar-a-Lago.
Trump has referred to his resort as the “Winter White House” and “Southern White House.” After Trump took office, Mar-a-Lago doubled membership rates to $200,000 a year.
Will be having many meetings this weekend at The Southern White House. Big 5:00 P.M. speech in Melbourne, Florida. A lot to talk about!

Trump held a campaign-like rally in Florida on Saturday, where about 9,000 supporters gathered.
Throughout former President Barack Obama’s eight years in the White House, Trump criticized him for taking breaks from his work to go on vacation and play golf.
Do you think Trump should be referring to his privately owned club as the “Southern White House”? Comment below and let us know.
