It seems like just yesterday President Trump was making headlines for starting a nuclear war with North Korea. Obviously his “fire and fury” comment is what dominated headlines, but the real purpose of his meeting Tuesday with Secretary of Health and Human Services Tom Price and acting Director of National Drug Control Policy Richard Baum was to discuss the nation’s opioid abuse crisis.
On Wednesday, though, the president was in hot water with the press for golfing after tweeting earlier that his 17-day vacation was not a vacation.
Working in Bedminster, N.J., as long planned construction is being done at the White House. This is not a vacation – meetings and calls!

This seems to be one of those occasions when the media took Trump literally. So he is sneaking in some golf among those meetings and calls, according to an Instagram post spotted by reporters from Axios, CNN, Bloomberg, the New York Times, and NBC News.
