President Donald Trump explained his frequent weekend visits to his own properties by disparaging the White House in no uncertain terms, according to a report published Tuesday by Sports Illustrated.
In contrast, Trump is in the habit of lavishing effusive praise on his own properties, Sports Illustrated reported, citing numerous people who have played golf with Trump: “Is this not the most beautiful asphalt you’ve ever seen in your life?”
His unflattering characterization of the White House was at odds with remarks Trump made Tuesday to small business owners.
“Great honor to be here,” he said. “This magnificent house known as the White House.”
