A man who recently golfed with President TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump: 'I don't trust everybody in the White House' JPMorgan CEO withdraws from Saudi conference Trump defends family separations at border MORE said the president did not take any phone calls when he joined Trump for a round.

“No, it was all golf. He was fully in the moment and with us. We played with two other guys and he was great with them too,” Taylor Funk told CNN’s “New Day” when asked if Trump also worked or took any phone calls while playing.


Trump on Monday returned from his Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Fla., where he spent the holidays with his family. The president had arrived at what he has dubbed “the winter White House” on Dec. 22.

Trump visited the Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Fla., for seven consecutive days, capping off his final visit to the club on New Year’s Day.

“He wanted to play good golf and we wanted to watch him play good golf. It was a lot of fun because he actually did play some good golf,” Funk, who went pro last year, told CNN.
