On Sunday evening, Fox News tweeted an extremely important news alert informing everyone that Trump did something unbelievable - he stayed in the White House to work for a weekend.

However, Spicer is now defending Trump's golf habit, arguing that the current president's golfing is more strategic.

It was not immediately clear whether Trump was actually playing golf.

Similar accusations were made by now Press Secretary Sean Spicer, Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and Trump advocate and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

This is the eighth weekend in a row President Trump has visited a property that bears his name.

The trail found that HSBC had processed $545.3m (£441m), RBS $113.1m (£91m) and Coutts $32.8m (£26.5) of Laundromat cash. Many were undercapitalized or suspected of violating money-laundering laws, authorities have said.

The president's presence at the Trump National Golf Club wasn't a secret. He has done so on 21 of the 66 days he has been in office, according to the Washington Post. However, he spent a number of hours at Trump International Golf Club in Palm Beach, more than enough time to play some golf.

President Donald Trump has already been criticized for spending so much time on the golf links, but that didn't stop him from spending last weekend at one of his own golf courses. Others posted video of Trump attacking President Obama for golfing. In contrast to Trump, who golfs nearly exclusively at his own properties, appaemtluy causing taxpayer dollars the end his trips to be channeled into his own privately-held company, Obama never golfed at a course that he owns - because he doesn't own any.

On Saturday, President Trump's aides said he traveled to Trump National for "meetings", but he was later photographed wearing golf cleats.

Mar-a-Lago, the Florida estate and private club owned by Trump, which he has visited frequently as president and has described as "the Southern White House".
