“President Trump shot a 73 in windy and wet conditions!” Graham tweeted after the pair returned from playing at the Trump National Golf Club in Virginia.

Par at the Trump golf course would be a 71, meaning Trump would have shot only two strokes over par — an excellent score for an amateur golfer.

“How bad did he beat me? I did better in the presidential race than today on the golf course!” Graham also tweeted. “Great fun. Great host.” 

 

 

The White House said Tuesday that the two "discussed [their] legislative priorities including immigration, tax reform, government funding and health care.

"We have a very aggressive fall agenda, and will continue meeting and working with members of congress to get things accomplished."

Trump and Graham traveled to the golf course together earlier Monday.

The pair were deeply critical of each other throughout the 2016 presidential primary and feuded over Trump’s response to the violent while supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va.

The two united last month to try and push through the Senate a bill to repeal ObamaCare. The legislation, sponsored by Graham and Sen.

Graham is now co-sponsoring the DREAM Act, which would provide a pathway to citizenship for many recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

Their golf outing came just hours after the White House unveiled its own hard-line proposals to be included in DACA legislation, including funding for a wall on the Mexico border.
