CNN cameras capture video of Trump golfing in Florida
CNN cameras spotted President Trump on the golf course Tuesday at his property in West Palm Beach, Fla.
The president, an avid golfer, played at Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach with Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.), PGA tour player Bryson DeChambeau and former pro golfer Dana Quigley, according to the White House.
Trump, who is staying at his Mar-a-Lago resort, is scheduled to remain in Florida through New Year’s Day.
On Monday, Trump had tweeted that he would be getting “back to work” after Christmas.
“I hope everyone is having a great Christmas, then tomorrow it’s back to work in order to Make America Great Again (which is happening faster than anyone anticipated)!” he tweeted Christmas night.

Trump previously promised during the 2016 presidential race that he would largely give up golfing if elected. Tuesday’s visit marked his 85th trip to one of his courses as president.
“I’m going to be working for you. I’m not going to have time to go play golf. Believe me,” Trump said in Virginia during an August 2016 rally.
Past presidents, including Barack Obama, often came under scrutiny for the amount of golf they played.
