Without question, playing golf is the official past time for just about every single US President that has held the office, at lease in modern history.
Whenever the president, whether its Clinton, Bush, Obama, and now Trump, take to the links, you can expect his critics and detractors to come out of the woodwork to denounce their leisurely ways. Golf is good for business, says Trump.
Over the years, presidents have hit the links to release some much needed stress, and/or to schmooze with heads of state and other foreign and domestic leaders. This appears to be the new American way in the presidency.
The president can’t win when he plays golf. There will always be some crisis going on around the world that he is going to be blamed for, or criticized for playing golf, rather than addressing the matter.
Playing golf really is a lose, lose for any president.
Florida Congresswoman Frederica Wilson (D), who has felt the wrath of President Trump’s tweets over the recent deaths of four US Special Forces soldiers in Niger, played to the chorus of those detractors who always criticize the Commander-In-Chief whenever he puts his pen down and picks up his golf club.

According to Golf.com, President Trump is the best golfing president of all time.
He is “the greatest of all time.”
