REPORT: Donald Trump Has Installed a Room-Sized Golf Simulator In the White House

"Executive Time."

President Donald Trump until recently had a 69-day streak without actually playing a round of golf on one of his Trump-branded golf courses, but it looks like he’s been making up for lost time according to two White House insiders who revealed the president has installed a room-sized “golf simulator” game in his personal quarters.

The new system replaces an “older, less sophisticated golf simulator that had been installed under President Obama,” The Washington Post reported, and cost roughly $50,000. An official who spoke to The Post said the president paid for the new installation, which some speculate was created by the Danish company TrackMan Golf, out of his own pocket. Trackman’s technology is used at 16 Trump hotels and resorts. The company has not yet confirmed whether they provided the technology at the White House, however.

You can see the alleged simulator for yourself below. Trackman Golf’s website reads: “Feel the excitement of playing real golf on beautiful courses year round.”

Trump, the anonymous officials revealed, installed the golf simulator a few weeks ago, likely at the same time federal workers were going without pay as a result of the longest government shutdown in American history, which kicked off after he declined to sign a stopgap funding bill that would have averted one because he disagreed with Congress over border wall funding.

This latest news prompted many to criticize the president.

CNN’s Chris Cillizza also reminded of one of the president’s oft-repeated quotes. Trump once claimed he “may never see [his] property” because he’d be too busy “working” for the American people.

The construction may shed some light on a controversial aspect of Trump’s schedule.
