Trump Allegedly Calls The Residence Of 43 Presidents 'A Real Dump'

"I would rarely leave the White House because there's so much work to be done", candidate Trump also said in 2015. But unlike "Crooked Hillary", "Little Marco", and "Lyin' Ted", Obama's nickname, "The Habitual Vacationer", didn't quite take off.

Trump has spent over 20% of his time in office (over 43 visits), at his golf clubs and was most recently spotted at his Virginia property on 30 July.

"It's a handsome residence, it's very elegant", Trump told the paper.

"They definitely don't waste any time trying to be charming or friendly, these people in the White House communications department", he added.

But he has spent a good deal of time away from the White House, including 21 of his first 26 weekends by CNN's count, mostly at his luxury Mar-a-lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, where the Versailles-like decor is closer to that of his own Manhattan penthouse in Trump Tower than the historic White House digs.

Golf.com reports that during a recent visit to his New Jersey golf club (which Trump has visited four times since his inauguration), the president told fellow members the reason why he frequents his own properties.

The 2008 book To Serve the President predicted the White House budget includes $1.6m for restoration and repairs each year.

He added: "You have to be a certain type of person". Last November, the President-elect hosted a cocktail reception and dinner at Bedminster on the same weekend that he was holding interviews at the club with candidates for his Cabinet. I see all of you.

A spokesperson for the White House denied the veracity of the statement to the sports publication. "I recognize, like, 100% of you, just about".
