The president is at the start of his 17-day working vacation and had been expected to spend it all at his Bedminister, New Jersey, golf club. Everyone working in the White House West Wing had to relocate so the government could replace a 27-year-old heating and cooling system.
Mr. Scavino tweeted a picture of the Oval Office being emptied hardly an hour after Air Force One left Joint Base Andrews on Friday, and on Saturday he shared a photograph of the White House's historic Resolute desk being removed for renovation.
The White House press office did not respond to HuffPost queries on why the president will not acknowledge that he plays golf when he visits his golf resorts, as he is doing all this week. "Then we pay for his golf".
While at the club, Trump also crashed a wedding, approaching shocked and amazed guests who were golfing as part of the main event's weekend festivities. "If you're not enjoying your work, you're in the wrong job", Trump had tweeted back in 2012. Maybe for being a potty-mouth, but more likely because Scaramucci was insisting that he reported directly to Donald Trump, not through Kelly.
In fact, presidential vacations are nearly always working, in some sense. As the report notes, two high-level administration sources explain that Lapan has worked with Kelly for over ten years and is "at the top of a short list to serve as the White House's top official on messaging and communications". 'Don't take vacations, ' he wrote in 'Think Like A Billionaire.' What's the point?
Democrats have recently favored Martha's Vineyard as a summer getaway. "You don't have time to take time off".
Republicans have favored more rustic respites. President George H.W. Bush, on the other hand, relaxed while driving his power boat at high speeds off Kennebunkport, Maine. It will mean that Trump has spent 53 leisure days through August 2017 compared to Obama who had 15 leisure days from his inauguration through August 2009.
