Trump uses game of golf different than Obama, Spicer says

21 March 2017, 12:57 | Marion Schneider

If Trump is playing, it will apparently be his ninth golf outing as president.

That means he's on pace to out-golf his predecessor - former president Barack Obama golfed 333 times over his two terms, per CBS reporter and unofficial historian Mark Knoller.

Testifying before the House Intelligence Committee on Monday, FBI Director James Comey confirmed - for the first time publicly - that the FBI was investigating "the Russian government's efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election" and their possible connection to Trump's presidential campaign.

In doing so, Spicer suggested the man who managed Donald Trump's presidential campaign "had a very limited role" - despite at least two months in charge.

"We started a hearing", Spicer said. The figure is not certain because the White House rarely confirms when Trump is golfing.

Obama golfed at a rate of once for every 8.8 days he was in office. I think it is fine to look into it but at the end of the day, they're going to come to the same conclusion everybody else has had.

"I have frequently dined in Trump Grill, had lunch in Trump Café, had coffee meetings in the Starbucks at Trump Tower, attended events and spent many hours in campaign headquarters on the fifth floor previous year", Page wrote.

It has also been revealed - through golf blogs and media reports - that Trump has played with top professional golfers such as Rory McIlroy, one of the top-ranked golfers in the world.

Spicer offered the example of Trump taking Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe golfing at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.

Trump leveled the accusations of wiretapping at the Obama administration in a series of tweets earlier this month. Asked the next day if Trump played golf during the 4½-hour visit to the golf club, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said: "I do believe he played a couple of holes".

Dearborn's aide, John Mashburn, conducts a weekly conference call with the advisers, who remain in constant contact with the White House.

House Speaker Paul Ryan's office says Trump plans to speak to the House Republican conference meeting to urge passage of the health care bill, which is expected to reach the House floor on Thursday. But the Obama White House regularly disclosed to the press corps when the president was playing golf, on weekends and even on vacation.
