Donald Trump has been videoed playing golf at his Florida estate two days after the Christmas Day tweet in which he vowed to be back to work on Boxing Day.
The President went to his private golf club in West Palm Beach, Florida, on Tuesday after spending Christmas with family at his estate in nearby Palm Beach.
Trump tweeted on Christmas Day that ‘tomorrow it’s back to work in order to Make America Great Again,’ which he says is ‘happening faster than anyone anticipated’.
But contrary to his comments, he is expected to remain at his Palm Beach estate until the new year.
