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". "Your pooler inquired about who POTUS will the meeting and calls are with".

Trump's preferred course by far is the one closest to his Florida home: Trump International Golf Club.

"We are still at the beginning phase of a look as to what kind of surveillance took place and why", Spicer told reporters at his daily briefing at the White House. "He may also step out to hit some golf balls, we're told but not yet confirmed".

Within the White House, a number of Mr. Trump's advisers - including the press secretary, Sean Spicer, who has himself repeated unsubstantiated claims of British spying on Mr. Trump - have told allies that Mr. Trump's Twitter habits are making their jobs harder, said administration officials interviewed over the past week.

The reticence may be due to Trump's frequent criticism, when he was a private citizen, of former President Barack Obama's frequent golf outings. Soon after, he assured voters, "I'm going to be working for you".

When the question arose again later in the day, after the president had departed the course, she could not confirm it at that time either.

On Saturday, Trump "spent the early morning and afternoon on issues concerning the Department of Veterans Affairs and the military", according to an official account distributed by the White House Press Office late that night.

Today is the 59th day of Trump's presidency. "He played more golf previous year than Tiger Woods". If he's playing today and it is indeed his 10th golf outing, that's a rate of once every 5.9 days.

The reporter followed up by asking why the details of "productive meetings" on the golf course are not being shared with the media.

While hosting Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Palm Beach last month, Trump also played a full round with the foreign leader and professional golfer Ernie Els.

We know, however, that Trump did play.

Trump, Rory McIlroy, former baseball star Paul O'Neill and Clear Sports CEO Garry Singer on the links February 19.

After the McIlroy news, Sanders said the president "intended to play a few holes and chose to play longer". He then held "a long and very fruitful call with President Michel Temer of Brazil", and met with Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster, his national security adviser, on North Korea. The White House said the president was conducting meetings, taking phone calls and that he "might hit a few balls". Only one time - while hosting Abe - did the President also visit Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter. The fact that the president golfs is less important than the fact that he routinely promised voters before the election that he'd do the opposite.
