Throughout the briefing, Spicer echoed tweets Trump sent earlier in the day, standing firm that leaks are the real issue, as opposed to the Trump campaign having ties to Russian Federation and claims that former President Obama wiretapped Trump Tower.

President Donald Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe exchange a high five at Trump National Golf Club on February 11 in a picture posted on White House social media accounts.

Not helping matters is the White House's reluctance to speak about Trump's golf, sometimes even denying the president played at all.

Monday's House Intelligence Committee hearing with Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey and National Security Agency director Mike Rogers was a hot topic early and often, with Spicer saying there are "a lot more questions that answers" when it comes to government surveillance.

Yahoo News correspondent Hunter Walker asked Spicer to comment on the fact that Trump has made "at least 10 trips to the golf course" since taking office despite the fact that Trump used to regularly snipe at Obama for "spending time on the course".

Manchester United announcement imminent after midfielder signs deal
The German was at the hub of a team that dominated the Bundesliga, winning eight league titles as a player at the Allianz Arena. Schweinsteiger was linked with a move to Chicago earlier this season but opted to stay at Old Trafford and fight for his place.

Later, responding to a question about Manafort's role with the campaign - he joined the Trump campaign in March 2016, was promoted to national chairman of the campaign in April, and resigned in August - Spicer again minimized his involvement.

American taxpayers have paid roughly $3.3 million to cover Trump's Mar-a-Lago visits.

"Presidents always travel. Wherever he goes, he carries the apparatus of the White House with us... So to start to look at some individual that was there for a short period of time or, separately, individuals who really didn't play any role in the campaign, and to suggest that those are the basis for anything, is a bit ridiculous".

"The president's very clear that he works seven days a week". He brings people down there.

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. For example, according to the Palm Beach Post, the White House told reporters that the president would be having meetings and making phone calls at Trump International Golf Club on Saturday. That same month, another Trump confidante, Roger Stone, was exchanging direct messages on Twitter with Guccifer 2.0, an account the U.S. intelligence community says was used as a front for hackers directed by the Russian government. "How you use the game of golf is something he's talked about". "He's actually conducted meetings there", Spicer said. "So just because he heads there doesn't mean that that's what's happening", Spicer said. Can the press get more details about said crucial meetings?
