President Donald J. Trump, who has faced mounting criticism for his administration’s mishandling of the coronavirus crisis and his lack of empathy throughout, decided to leave the White House on Saturday to play golf.

Trump visited his Trump National Golf Club located just outside Washington, D.C., in Sterling, Virginia.

By CNN’s count, this was the president’s 357th visit to one of his properties and his 265th trip to one of his golf clubs during his presidency.

White House coronavirus advisor Deborah Birx on Friday said that sports such as golf could be played safely if social distancing was in place and players didn’t touch flags.

Trump going golfing shows a tone-deafness and a lack of empathy. The U.S. pandemic death toll is approaching 100,000, and 40 million Americans are unemployed.

185 golf outings since President and about 33 million in taxpayer dollars. I think he said when campaigning he would be too busy working to golf. Of course this was a failed attempt to say something against President Obama golfing. Trump has finely beat Obama on something; the number of tee times..

We all have our priorities; Right?
Unfortunately the health and welfare of US citizens is not high on the President’s list.

Could anybody tell him that base jump gives much more fun than golf ?
Could this anybody tell him that wearing a parachute during base jumping is as compulsory as wearing a mask in a Ford plant ? (Just to make sure he won’t wear it ?)
