President Trump has gone to a golf course for the 9th time in 7 weeks

Remember way back in the 2014 - the coalition were in power, "Brexit"was an unknown term and Donald Trump was just a reality TV star - it's hard to believe that this was all less than three years ago.

Back then the Apprentice host and golf enthusiast Donald Trump enjoyed tweeting a lot about how President Obama shouldn't be golfing.

In fact he tweeted about it quite a lot

Fast forward to 2017 and the reality star is now the leader of the free world.

And in his seven weeks since taking office (yes it really has been only seven weeks) he's been to a golf course nine times.


Oh yeah and all these trips to Mar- a-Lago are on the taxpayers dollar.

And he's not exactly being subtle about it either.

In fact, an estimate by the Washington DC-based Judicial Watch says Trump and his family have cost the American taxpayers over $97m already - that's more than the Obama and Biden families did in eight years.

It's just really really awkward.
