As Hurricane Dorian, one of the strongest Atlantic hurricanes on record, slammed through the Bahamas en route towards the Southeastern United States, President Donald Trump was spotted on the links at a Trump-branded Virginia golf club.
The President has no plans listed on his public schedule for Monday. He was originally set to spend this weekend in Poland commemorating the start of World War II. However, that trip was canceled as the threat posed by Hurricane Dorian became more clear.
Trump was also seen at the golf course on Saturday.
White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham says that Trump is being briefed on Hurricane Dorian “throughout the weekend.”
.@realDonaldTrump just received a briefing on Hurricane Dorian from @fema officials. It is important that people in FL, GA, NC & SC remain vigilant & take direction from law enforcement & local officials. The @POTUS will continue to be briefed throughout the weekend.— Stephanie Grisham (@PressSec) August 31, 2019
Trump frequently criticized his predecessor, Barack Obama, for spending time golfing as President.
President Trump has been active on Twitter Monday as well. He has retweeted messages from the National Hurricane Center about the strength and path of Hurricane Dorian, and shared information about the attempted rescue of a boat on fire near California’s Santa Cruz island.
But earlier on Labor Day, Trump was tweeting about the economy and criticizing the president of the AFL-CIO, a union federation. He also attacked two of his favorite targets: the media and a group of young female Democratic lawmakers known as “The Squad.”
Since my election, many trillions of dollars of worth has been created for our Country, and the Stock Market is up over 50%. If you followed the advice of the Failing New York Times columnist, Paul Krugman, you’d be doing VERY poorly - you’d be angry and hurt. He never got it!— Donald J.

Just watched AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka on @FoxNews and thought to myself how different he is on TV than he is when he is with me at the White House. Likes what we are doing until the cameras go on. We got robbed on Trade and everything else while his Dems just sat back....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 2, 2019
The Amazon Washington Post did a story that I brought racist attacks against the “Squad.” No, they brought racist attacks against our Nation. All I do is call them out for the horrible things they have said. The Democrats have become the Party of the Squad!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 2, 2019
The LameStream Media has gone totally CRAZY! They write whatever they want, seldom have sources (even though they say they do), never do “fact checking” anymore, and are only looking for the “kill.” They take good news and make it bad. They are now beyond Fake, they are Corrupt..— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 2, 2019
Trump also retweeted a Labor Day message from the White House’s official account.
