Trump the tweet twit

Trump tweeted 27 times about Barack Obama playing golf too much. Donald Trump has tweeted about golf at least 460 times since creating his Twitter account in 2009. He’s promoted the courses he owns, praised the game as a source of mental and physical development, critiqued other courses, and bragged about whom he’s playing with. Particulary noticed the tweets Trumpedup mentioned Russia in, you now the times back then when he said they were out to take over the world, before he got in bed with them in so many ways. Trump forgets his Obama criticisms; The new president, who attacked Obama for golfing and personal travel, spends his first month outdoing his predecessor. {See below where this information about him was gotten just from up to February of his presidency and he had already outdone Obama golfing and costing the american taxpayers but MILLIONS of dollars AND by number of golfing trips and ways.

Donald Trump regularly assailed President Barack Obama for playing golf, then spent the first weekends of his own presidency doing just that. He attacked Obama for using Air Force One to campaign, and did it over the weekend just a month into the job. He mocked Obama for heading out of Washington at taxpayer expense, but appears to have no qualms about doing so himself. One month in, Trump is using the presidency to boost his political and personal goals — not breaking laws or ethics rules, experts say, but ignoring his past criticisms and vows. “Donald Trump has zero worry about contradicting himself, because he does it all day long,” said Douglas Brinkley, a presidential historian who has met with Trump. “He figures he can get away with it because he does it all the time. There is no worry about it. He says one thing and then does another, and his supporters don’t hold it against him.” The new president has taken three weekend getaways in the first month of office, spending millions of taxpayer dollars in Secret Service protection and about 25 percent of his time away from the White House. The Secret Service has also paid for security for expensive business trips for his sons’ business ventures to foreign countries. The actions seem to fly in the face of how he mocked Obama’s travel. “President Barack Obama’s vacation is costing taxpayers millions of dollars — unbelievable!” he wrote in one of many tweets criticizing Obama for taking a trip.

They can use Air Force One for whatever they’d like to use it for, said ethics expert Richard Painter, though they do have to reimburse some of the costs. “Are we going to have a four-year campaign? Are we going to pay for that? Are we going to pay for him to be there every weekend?” asked Painter, an ethics lawyer who worked for Bush. “We have always accepted that presidents campaign in the year of an election, but he has been in office one month.”
