The Young Turks / YouTube White House Golfing Makes Trump More...

After flying to Florida to meet with some of the victims of this nation’s latest mass shooting and the law enforcement officers who responded to that shooting, Donald Trump’s team quietly announced that he would be making the ultimate sacrifice.

President Trump reportedly skipped a day at the golf course on Saturday following the Florida school shooting that took place just miles from his Mar-a-Lago resort.

White House aides told Bloomberg that the decision not to golf was a show of respect for the victims and grieving families of the school shooting in Florida.

Mar-a-Lago is uncomfortably close the Broward County high school at which the shooting took place, and so Trump went to his club both before and after meeting with victims.

Note that the message only suggests Trump skipped Saturday’s planned golf outing in a show of respect for the victims; it does not say he would be skipping a game of golf today as well. That seems a significant omission.
