What is Trump doing on Labor Day? Monitoring Dorian from golf course
WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump spent his Labor Day morning at the Trump National Golf Course in Sterling, Virginia, as Hurricane Dorian continued its slow crawl toward the United States.
Earlier Monday, Trump approved emergency declarations in several states and lashed out on Twitter about everything from AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka to “the Squad” to the “LameStream Media.”
He also retweeted several posts from the National Hurricane Center about Dorian and some other tweets about a boat fire near Los Angeles.
The president has no public events scheduled for Monday, according to his schedule.
Before a briefing on the hurricane Sunday at FEMA headquarters, Trump described Dorian as a “one of the biggest hurricanes that we’ve ever seen” and repeatedly expressed amazement that a storm could reach Category 5 status.
Trump also canceled a planned trip to Poland to monitor the hurricane and sent Vice President Mike Pence in his place.
