President Trump has spent more days golfing, or on his golf properties, than any other modern President. According to CNN, Trump has spent triple the amount of time that President Obama spent on the golf course in his entire eight-year presidency in just one year. One galling point, of course, is that taxpayer dollars fund these trips.
