Sat, Oct 14, 2017: Trump visits golf course with Sen. Lindsey Graham

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.

Combative and insistent, President Donald Trump declared anew Tuesday “there is blame on both sides” for the deadly violence last weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia, appearing to once again equate the actions of white supremacist groups and those protesting them. He showed sympathy for the fringe groups’ efforts to preserve Confederate monuments.

The president’s comments effectively wiped away the more conventional statement he delivered at the White House a day earlier when he branded members of the KKK, neo-Nazis and white supremacists who take part in violence as “criminals and thugs.” Continue reading “Tue, Aug 15, 2017: Trump holds press conference, insists ‘there is blame on both sides’ in Charlottesville, VA”

Later on Saturday, speaking from his golf club in New Jersey, Trump made a statement to address the violence.

“We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides,” Trump said. “It’s been going on for a long time in our country.

President Trump made an unscheduled visit to the Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Va., on Saturday following his speech at the USS Gerald R. Ford in Norfolk, Va.

Trump’s team traveled from Norfolk to Washington Dulles International Airport in Northern Virginia and arrived at the resort shortly after 1:30 p.m.

White House officials including chief of staff Reince Priebus, senior policy adviser Stephen Miller, and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and his wife accompanied Trump to lunch at the club.

The group may have been forced to skip the putting green because of thunderstorms that hit the Washington area Saturday afternoon.

Trump left the golf club around 5:45 p.m. and returned to the White House.
