Sarah Sanders Was Asked About Trump’s Golfing, Immediately Hits Back With A Big Dose Of Truth

Much to the annoyance of his critics, President Donald Trump has spent much of his holidays on his Florida golf course.

Check it out:

The White House said on Tuesday, during the White House’s first press briefing of the year, Trump’s use of the golf course helps push his agenda, via NY Post:

The White House on Tuesday defended President Trump’s scores of trips to his golf courses during his first year in office — arguing that hitting the links with lawmakers paid big policy dividends.

Washington Examiner reports she said Trump uses golfing to form “deeper and better relationships with members of Congress.”

She attributed these relationships to having helped the government pass the largest tax reform bill in over three decades: “Those relationships have helped push forward the president’s agenda, specifically when it comes to helping get the tax reform and tax cuts passed.”

And, “A lot of that, I think, and the success of that came from strong relationships that the president has had, and he’s played golf with a number of senators and used that time certainly to accomplish that.”

She also added:

Sanders, though, said many of Trump’s successes during his first year in office, such as the gains against the Islamic State and the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch, can be attributed to the bonds he’s forged with others while golfing.

“I think we’ve had an extremely successful 2017,” she said. “And some of that is due to the relationship-building that he was able to do there.”

And, from Independent Journal Review:

Sanders told the reporter that she thought the press, not the White House, had an issue with Trump’s time on the course. “The president’s extremely proud of the accomplishments we had during 2017. I don’t think anyone can argue, it’s probably one of the most successful first years in office.”

She specifically touted Trump’s performance in areas such as nominating Supreme Court justice Neil Gorsuch and defeating ISIS. “I think we’ve had an extremely successful 2017 and some of that’s due to the relationship building he was able to do [on the golf course.]”

During one of Trump’s golf outings in recent days, the President hosted members of the U.S. Coast Guard.

Check it out, via the Daily Caller:

Trump welcomed the Coast Guard members and told them he wanted them to have a fun tournament to figure out who the best player is.

“It’s an honor to have you on the course,” Trump said.

And:

According to the White House pool report, sixty members of the Coast Guard accepted Trump’s invitation to use his golf course for the day. Trump also provided the service members lunch.

    Let’s also not forget Trump has waived his Presidential salary to be used for charities of his choice unlike Obama that didn’t do anything for the good of the country and don’t forget all those luxury vacations he took also. Trump is a respected businessman and I have no doubt he is working for the good of the country and it doesn’t cost the taxpayer anything for him to play there!

    Why do they complain about Trumps playing Golf? Obama had to run and played Golf when ISIS was decapitating an American? Trump owns the Golf ranch and he is not paying taxpayers money to play golf there .Unlike Obama who used taxpayers money for everything he wants to do.Obama and the rest of them are so jealous of Trump’s wealth!!!!!!!!!!!

    Totally agree Kathleen. Is the President not allowed to have a little down time? If the members of the Fake News gaggle worked half as hard in trying to belittle the President, instead, how about showing some journalistic integrity and having an unbiased view of the events as they happen?? Or is the truth too unpalatable for their views?? They dare criticise him after the US had 8 years of Obumma?? The mind boggles!! Not only is the President having a few good games of golf, he is doing a good job in running the country, what more could you ask for??
