Even though Trump went to the golf course, and his party was spotted with golf clubs, the White House refused to confirm that Trump played golf the day after the London Bridge terror attack.
According to the White House Press Pool report provided to PoliticusUSA, “Motorcade pulled into the Trump National Golf Club at 930 a.m. sharp. Press split off just after entering the club and pool is now holding in the clubhouse. I did not see the president upon arrival. I’ve asked whether the president is playing golf, taking calls or what, and will report back if the question is answered.”
Four hours later, “After a nearly four-and-a-half-hour hold with no sign of President Trump, the motorcade is now rolling from Trump National Golf Club at 151 pm. No information received in response to questions about the president’s activities while at the club.”
It was confirmed that Trump was golfing when the White House press pooler spotted golf clubs, “The motorcade pulled onto the White House grounds at 2:28 pm following an uneventful trip from Sterling, Va., during which we stopped for lights on the non-highway portions of the journey. We did not see the president and could not make out others on arrival but did see golf clubs being carried away from the motorcade.”
The US is being governed by man that gives highly classified secrets to America’s enemies, but tries to hide his activities from the domestic media.
The Trump administration has been tried to hide the amount of golf Trump plays from the media for months. Reporters have usually found out that Trump was golfing through the social media posts of his playing partners.
Just to make it clear, the same man who once retweeted this about Obama went golfing the day after a terrorist attack:
"@TheBigJamesG: What kind of president doesn't get playing golf after a cruel beheading isn't the thing to do? Detached from reality he is"

Trump has demonstrated once again that when he isn’t undermining the free world, he would rather be golfing.
