Trump golfed more than a 'couple' holes in Florida



The White House today acknowledged that President Trump played more than a "a couple" holes of golf yesterday in Florida.

"As stated yesterday the President played golf. He intended to play a few holes and decided to play longer," spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement. "He also had a full day of meetings, calls and interviews for the new NSA, which he is continuing today before returning to Washington, D.C. Tonight."

Turns out Trump was golfing with Rory McIlroy. Trump also played Saturday, though his spokeswoman described it as "a couple" holes and would not identify his partners.

Trump has been in Florida since Friday -- his third consecutive weekend visit to Mar-a-Lago.
