For the second time in 12 months, President Donald Trump is playing some late-fall golf with Tiger Woods. Trump tweeted that he would tee it up with Woods and Dustin Johnson at Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter, Florida, on Friday after a phone meeting with the president of Turkey.
“After Turkey call, I will be heading over to Trump National Golf Club, Jupiter, to play golf (quickly) with Tiger Woods and Dustin Johnson,” Trump said. “Then back to Mar-a-Lago for talks on bringing even more jobs and companies back to the USA!”
For the second time in a week, President Trump and sometimes-critic Lindsey Graham hit the golf course together as the president solicits congressional support for his health care, tax reform and Iran and North Korea agendas.
The president and Graham, a Republican senator from South Carolina who ran for president in 2016 and has not shied from criticizing him at times, rode together in the motorcade Saturday to Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Virginia.
Trump, wearing a white golf shirt and white hat, and Graham spent more than four hours at the golf course.
A spokesman for Graham did not immediately return a request for comment from Fox News about Saturday’s round.
