Trump Begins His 17-Day Golf Vacation

The Washington Post reports:

By our count, by the end of August, Trump will have spent all or part of 53 days in office at leisure, compared with 15 days for Obama through August 2009. What’s more, Trump will have played at least 33 rounds of golf, nearly double Obama’s 17 rounds — and that’s even before Trump gets to his vacation spot, an actual golf course.

There’s certainly subjectivity to this. Perhaps you don’t view Trump’s trips to Mar-a-Lago as vacations. Perhaps you don’t count partial days. Perhaps you have another metric you would like to use. Fair enough. For a presidential candidate who pledged to take little vacation and play next to no golf, though, the apples-to-apples comparison above is striking.
