Trump takes break from White House with ‘working vacation’

BRIDGEWATER, N.J. (AP)– Taking a break from the capital and a rocky first six months in office, President Donald Trump invested the first full day of his “working getaway” silently on Saturday.Burdened with West Wing conflict, a stalled legislative program and a stack of investigations, Trump departed Washington on Friday afternoon for a 17-day trip to his private golf club in central New Jersey. He was accompanied by his daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner, both senior consultants, in addition to the aide accuseded of resetting his chaotic administration– brand-new chief of personnel John Kelly.A White Home official said Trump’s plans for Bedminster consisted of meetings with assistants and lawmakers. He was briefed by Kelly about the 3 U.S. Militaries who were missing after their Osprey airplane crashed into the sea off the east coast of Australia on Saturday while attempting to land.The White House did not respond to concerns about whether Trump was playing golf on a day that started overcast, but grew bright in the afternoon.Typically a passionate social networks presence, Trump was reasonably peaceful on Twitter Saturday. Around midday, he tweeted:”Success is returning to our coasts since we are putting America WORKERS and FAMILIES initially.”Kelly’s very first week on the task was marked by his efforts to punish a disorderly system. He quickly made his presence known on Monday, ousting newly designated communications director Anthony Scaramucci and revising the

command structure so that all senior staffers report to him.Still, it is unclear Trump will change his Twitter methods. On Tuesday he tweeted that”just the Fake News Media and Trump opponents desire me to stop using Social Media.”Prior to he took workplace, Trump was a frequent critic of previous President Barack Obama’s vacation and golf habits.”@BarackObama played golf the other day. Now he heads to a 10 day holiday in Martha’s Vineyard. Nice work ethic,”Trump tweeted in August 2011. Up until now

, Trump has actually spent 13 of 28 weekends in office far from the White Home, primarily at his properties in Palm Beach, Florida, or in Bedminster, New Jersey, according to an Associated Press count. The figures consist of a weekend during main travel overseas, and Daddy’s Day weekend at Camp David, the government-owned presidential retreat in Maryland.Trump also frequently plays golf at his homes, though the White House generally will not acknowledge that he plays.In addition to a break from Washington, the trip may also have an useful factor. Everybody working in the White Home West Wing needed to transfer so the federal government might change a 27-year-old heating

and cooling system.Copyright 2017 The Associated Press. All rights booked. This product might not be released, broadcast, reworded or rearranged.
