Those questions don't have anything to do with whether Trump was correct in tweeting that Obama ordered Trump to be wiretapped during the campaign.

The White House refused to provide any details.

President Donald Trump trails former President Barack Obama by more than 300 rounds of presidential golf, but Trump has been teeing off at a brisk pace.

On Sunday, Lindsay E. Walters, a spokeswoman, told reporters traveling with the president that while at his golf club, Trump "may step out to hit balls, but I can not confirm that at this time".

Asked how Trump's golf outings were different from Obama's, Spicer said: "You saw him utilize this as a opportunity with Prime Minister (Shinzo) Abe to help foster deeper relationships in Southeast Asia, in Asia rather, and have a growing relationship that's going to help USA interests". Walker followed up by asking why, then, the media is not hearing details from these meetings, to which Spicer replied by saying, multiple times, that Trump is "entitled to a bit of privacy". The White House didn't confirm whether the president played golf during his almost four hours at the course.

"Presidents always travel. Wherever he goes, he carries the apparatus of the White House with us..." He has visited the course all 10 times he has golfed since becoming President. Page was an unpaid foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign who had extensive ties to Russia and met with Russian officials. Golf blog later revealed Trump played 18 holes with four-time major champion Rory McIlroy.

"Just so we're clear, I'm not dismissing Paul Manafort as a hanger-on", Spicer said.

The minister was responding to concerns flagged by MPs after she made a statement on recent incidents of attacks in the US. On March 2, a U.S. national of Indian origin, Harnish Patel, was shot dead near his house in SC by unknown attackers.

"I'm going to be working for you".

Spicer asserted that no evidence has been presented to suggest cooperation between Trump associates and Russian operatives. Instead, the White House has presented the president's trips to Trump International as business outings.

Trump and Japan's Abe played golf on February 11 at Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter, then visited Trump International Golf Club in unincorporated West Palm Beach.

But if Obama did order the NSA to prepare transcripts of Trump's conversations last fall under the pretext of national security - to find out whether Trump was communicating with the Russians would have been a good excuse - there would exist somewhere a record of such an order.

In Fleming's in-tray will be to fix ties strained by claims made by the presidential press secretary, Sean Spicer, that GCHQ had helped the previous president spy on Donald Trump.

But Manafort's control did not last through Election Day. As for whether any golf was played in all those hours at the course, Trump left the matter vague.

When pressed at USA congressional hearings whether the incident would have a bad impact on security ties between the United States and Britain, he said: "I believe that the relationship is strong enough. this is something we will be able to deal with".
