Donald Trump jokes with golfers at New Jersey golf club that his course is ‘easy’

President Donald Trump is staying at his Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J., as part of a 17-day "working vacation" while the White House undergoes renovations set into motion by the Obama administration. While Trump has made trips back to Washington and to his penthouse at Trump Tower in Manhattan, Trump has spent the bulk of his time at his country club, playing golf on some of the 36 holes on property, having meetings and doing other things, whatever that may be.

While Trump is on property, however, the club is still busy and active around him. Golfers are playing on the courses. Members and guests are dining in the clubhouse or swimming in the pool or doing other on-grounds activities. Yes, the Secret Service keeps tabs and protects the President and a variety of others in his family and in the administration, but the club remains a functioning business.

The folks behind @buttercutgolf on Instagram got a first-hand experience with that interaction on Wednesday. They played a round at Trump National Golf Club, during which Marine One landed with the Commander-in-Chief.

Then, after the round, the golfers spotted President Trump in the clubhouse and talked with him some about their experience. Apparently after telling the President that he needs to mow the deep rough, the President replied with, "Easy course, right?" to laughs. He told the guests to have a great time and kept on with his business.

Trump appeared somewhat relaxed and happy to have the interaction that didn't involve Charlottesville, North Korea or any other myriad problems and controversies he faces.
