Trump said he was ‘back to work.’ Then he live-tweeted Fox News and went golfing 2 straight days.

The president says he's working hard, but the evidence indicates he's hardly working.

On Christmas, President Trump proclaimed from his private Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida that the day after the holiday, he would be heading “back to work.”

“I hope everyone is having a great Christmas, then tomorrow it’s back to work in order to Make America Great Again (which is happening faster than anyone anticipated)!” he wrote.

But it appears Trump either operates with an unusual concept of “work,” or was lying. Because Trump began the following morning by live-tweeting his favorite show, Fox & Friends — a show he regularly reacts to on Twitter, despite his recent proclamation that he does “not watch much television.”

After watching some TV, Trump headed to his Trump International Golf Club, where he was caught on camera playing golf at one of his golf courses for the 85th visit since taking office less than a year ago.

Then, on Wednesday morning, Trump headed back to the Trump International Golf Club for his 86th visit to one of his golf courses since taking office.

There are no public events on Trump’s calendar for Wednesday.

Though Trump’s “back to work” tweet has been belied by the evidence, Fox News covered it on Tuesday as though it was true.

During the campaign, Trump — who regularly criticized President Obama for allegedly golfing too much — promised that if elected, he would rarely leave the White House and wouldn’t have time for golf.

But during his first year in office, Trump has taken an unprecedented number of vacation days and made 112 visits to properties he still owns from which he profits.
