Joe Biden golfed as president for the first time on his 87th day in office. Trump played on his 15th.
Biden on Saturday played at the Wilmington Country Club near his home in Delaware. White House pool reporters said he was golfing with adviser Steve Ricchetti and his late son Beau’s father-in-law, Ron Olivere.
Trump generally played golf at his own properties like the Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Florida, the golf-tracking website shows.
During his four-year tenure in office, Trump played golf nearly 300 times, the tracker says.
Prior to entering office, he would frequently blast his predecessor, former President Barack Obama, for golfing, saying he would never “have time” to play if he were in the role .
And during his presidency, Trump downplayed the amount of time he spent on the course and falsely claimed Obama played more than he did.
“I know many in business and politics that work out endlessly, in some cases to a point of exhaustion. It is their number one passion in life, but nobody complains,” Trump once tweeted . “My ‘exercise’ is playing, almost never during the week, a quick round of golf. Obama played more and much longer rounds, no problem.”
Obama did play more rounds of golf than Trump – but that was over the course of a two-term tenure. In his eight years as president, Obama played 333 rounds of golf .
