Spicer says Trump campaign chairman actually played 'limited role'
Spokesman Sean Spicer said that "where ever the president goes, (he) carries the apparatus of the White House".
President Donald Trump plans to visit Capitol Hill on Tuesday to make an in-person pitch for House Republican lawmakers to support a GOP plan to repeal and replace former President Barack Obama's health care law. "People jump to the conclusion he's going to play golf".
"Very little", Trump told reporters traveling with him Sunday on Air Force One back to Washington, recounting what he said had been a busy weekend of meetings to sell the health care bill and strategize about the nuclear threat from North Korea.
So why won't the White House be more forthcoming about his time on the course? "I am disappointed that anyone would give credence to allegations made by individuals with clear political motives in a blatant attempt to discredit me and the legitimacy of the election of President Trump".
When the question arose again later in the day, after the president had departed the course, she could not confirm it at that time either.
Trump said while campaigning for president that if he won, he would probably be too busy doing the people's business to golf.
In a role most of us wouldn't wish on our worst enemies, Spicer sought to defuse criticism of Trump's expensive trips to Florida, his golfing habit, baseless wiretapping claims, and the ongoing investigation into Russian links.
"He played more golf a year ago than Tiger Woods", Trump said of Obama in December after being elected president.
"You saw him utilize this as opportunity with Prime Minister Abe to help foster deeper relationships in Asia and have a growing relationship that's going to help US interests", Spicer told reporters.
Last month, after White House officials told reporters that he had "played a couple of holes" at his West Palm Beach course, a photograph emerged of the president posing with Rory McIlroy, the professional golfer, along with reports that they had played 18 holes. Spicer also noted that Trump has held meetings and phone conversations at the golf club. Toward the end of the primary calendar in mid-April, Manafort and Rick Wiley were reportedly given control of the campaign, as campaign manager Corey Lewandowski took on a smaller role.
"Spicer pointed to Trump's meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, arguing that they were able to develop their relationship while playing golf".
