  • Trump departs after a round of golf with Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at Kasumigaseki Country Club in Kawagoe Japan

The President will host the pro golfers at his own course, located less than a half-hour drive from his Mar-a-Lago resort, where he spent Thanksgiving.

But today, the president announced he'll be playing golf "quickly" with Jupiter Island resident Tiger Woods and PGA star Dustin Johnson.

"I will get it all done, but what a mistake, in lives and dollars (6 trillion), to be there in the first place", he said.

Turkey's president said he discussed the Syrian crisis and other regional issues with in a phone call Friday with President Donald Trump, after Trump tweeted that the two would talk "about bringing peace to the mess that I inherited in the Middle East'".

In less than a year in office, Trump is outpacing Obama, hitting the links a known 35 times, according to Politifact. It expressly prohibits the USA president from receiving "any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever" from a foreign government or its dignitaries without the approval of Congress.

While he frequently spends time away from the White House at one of his numerous golf courses, there is sensitivity over claims the President takes up too much time playing, rather than working. Woods last competed in February, withdrawing after a 77 to open the Omega Dubai Desert Classic. During that outing - also at the West Palm Beach, Fla., course, Woods said he was "impressed" by the president's drive. This will be the second time Trump has played with Woods since winning the November 9, 2016 election over Hillary Clinton.

After a year in the Oval Office, however, published reports indicate he has played at least 34 times since the inauguration and has visited his golf courses more than 70 times.

He also used his pre-golf morning to blast NFL players who "disrespect" the country, the flag and national anthem with their pre-game protests "without penalty".

Trump has already played golf with Woods, Japan's Hideki Matsuyama, Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy and women's world No. 3 Lexi Thompson since his inauguration in January.
