Spicer Pressed on Why Trump's Golf Trips Are Different Than Obama's
President Donald Trump was a frequent critic of his predecessor's frequent golf games.
At today's briefing, a reporter asked White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer how Trump's golfing - at least 10 trips in eight weeks in office - are any different.

Spicer pointed out that Trump used a golf round with Japanese Prime Minister in Shinzo Abe to discuss deeper relationships last month.
"How you use the game of golf is something that he's talked about," said Spicer.
He added that just because Trump is at one of his golf courses doesn't mean he's actually playing a round.
Spicer said reporters have jumped to conclusions and falsely assumed in some instances that the president was golfing.
The reporter followed up by asking why the details of "productive meetings" on the golf course are not being shared with the media.
"The president is entitled to a bit of privacy at some point," Spicer responded.
