Burdened with West Wing conflict, a stalled legislative agenda and a pile of investigations, Mr Trump departed Washington on Friday afternoon (local time) for a 17-day trip to his private golf club in central New Jersey.
He was accompanied by his daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner, both senior advisers, as well as the aide charged with resetting his chaotic administration — new chief of staff John Kelly.
But he has no shame in tweeting another Lie! Mr Trump said it was not a holiday on Saturday evening, tweeting:
The President of the United States of America took to Twitter on Saturday evening to announce that he was currently “working in Bedminster, NJ, as long planned construction is being done at The White House. This is not a vacation – meetings and calls!”
However, an Instagram post a couple of hours later shows that Trump is not taking any calls or holding any meetings for that matter.
He is sitting nice and content in a golf cart which is snapped by a woman with the handle katemastro who says that Trump was spotted saying “you’re a good looking group of people” to wedding guests that were there for the weekend while he was having a round of golf.
A White House official said Mr Trump’s plans for Bedminster included meetings with aides and lawmakers.
He was briefed by General Kelly about the three US Marines who were missing after their Osprey aircraft crashed into the sea off the east coast of Australia while trying to land.
The White House did not answer questions about whether Mr Trump was golfing, but he did chat with some wedding guests at the club, according to a video posted by WPVI-TV in Philadelphia.
Mr Trump sent out a flurry of tweets in the early evening, defending his travel plans and hailing a vote by the UN Security Council to impose new sanctions on North Korea.
He also praised Attorney-General Jeff Sessions for pledging to clamp down in government leaks, after previously complaining he was weak on the matter.
There is some renovation work underway at the White House while Mr Trump is out of town.
Everyone working in the West Wing, including Mr Trump, had to clear out so the Government could replace a 27-year-old heating and cooling system.
General Kelly’s first week on the job was marked by his efforts to crack down on a disorderly system.
He quickly made his presence known, ousting newly appointed communications director Anthony Scaramucci and revising the command structure so that all senior staffers report to him.
Still, it is not clear whether Mr Trump will change his Twitter ways.
On Tuesday he tweeted that “only the Fake News Media and Trump enemies want me to stop using Social Media”.
Before he took office, Mr Trump was a frequent critic of former president Barack Obama’s vacation and golf habits.
So far, Mr Trump has spent 13 of 28 weekends in office away from the White House, mostly at his properties in Palm Beach, Florida, or in Bedminster, New Jersey, according to an Associated Press count.
The figures include a weekend during official travel overseas, and Father’s Day weekend at Camp David, the government-owned presidential retreat in Maryland.
Mr Trump also frequently plays golf at his properties, though the White House typically will not acknowledge that he plays.
