Trump uses game of golf different than Obama, Spicer says

And while many former presidents did travel to their respective homes or on vacation, they didn't do so as early or as often as Trump has.

Since taking office, however, Trump, an avid golfer who is reportedly a better player than his predecessor, has not shied away from his favourite pastime.

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer has once more stepped into the breach to defend Donald Trump's embattled administration. 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".

Obama golfed 333 times as president, according to Mark Knoller of CBS News, who is considered the foremost authority on presidential scheduling.

Trump's predecessor, President Barack Obama, left an estimated 103 judicial vacancies throughout the federal circuit and district courts, or almost double the 54 openings he had when he entered office in 2009 after George W. Bush's presidency.

Trump holds a golf club during a media event at the site for his then yet-to-be-built golf course in Scotland.

"Our services are at the New York Times' disposal when it comes to writing headlines", Spicer said in a joking tone, offering to put his own stamp on the news outlet's coverage.

How you use the game of golf is something that he's talked about.

Except that Obama also played a round with an Asian leader - in 2014, when he hit the links with Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak during Obama's winter vacation in Hawaii.

Comey said during a House Intelligence Committee hearing Monday that the bureau had "no information" to support tweets from Trump accusing Obama of tapping his phones before the 2016 election.

Trump's top aides would rather obscure that fact, especially considering the President's past comments about the sport and the White House.

Trump's aides have not done so.

Manafort managed the campaign between April and August a year ago, before resigning after links to a pro-Russian former Ukrainian President were exposed.

"Obviously there has been some discussion of Paul Manafort, who played a very limited role for a very limited amount of time". "People jump to the conclusion he's going to play golf".

So why won't the White House be more forthcoming about his time on the course?

He also appeared on Sirius XM radio's Wilkow Majority to say that he felt he was being maligned in the hearings but was "suited up and ready for combat".
