Presidents have a long tradition of leaving Washington during the summer. "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".
The White House did not answer questions about whether Trump was golfing, but he did chat with some wedding guests at the club, according to a video posted by WPVI-TV in Philadelphia. So when Trump took office, it was assumed by many that he would stay off of the golf course, at least for the most part.
Trump sent out a flurry of tweets in the early evening, defending his travel plans and hailing a vote by the U.N. Security Council to impose new sanctions on North Korea. But when the General Service Administration didn't deliver an installation plan until spring 2016, the Obama White House made a decision to punt construction to the next administration.
"I'm very concerned that the Department of Justice is weaponizing these laws for its personal and political ends, and specifically for the White House's purposes", he told the news network.
This is hardly the first time the president has crashed a wedding that was held at one of his properties.
"The President will continue to work over the next two weeks", said White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters.
Roughly 1,000 police officers were assigned to cover Trump's first homecoming, an NYPD official said at the time.
Trump's 17-day trip has been met with a ton of criticism from those who believe it's inappropriate for the president to take such a lengthy break from office, especially during the convergence of the Russian Federation investigation gaining steam and the looming threat from North Korea.
A poll last week from Quinnipiac University found that just 33 percent of voters overall approve of Trump's job performance, a new low.
