President Donald Trump spent his Sunday afternoon participating in one of his favorite leisure activities as the world awaits his next political move. It was the second straight day that the president took to the links to get a few holes in.
Trump was photographed teeing off at the Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Virginia. Trump was also swinging his clubs on Saturday when word began to trickle in that his opponent Joe Biden had taken Pennsylvania. The Keystone State victory gave the former Vice President enough electoral votes to claim the next four in the White House.
President Trump’s Golf Game Triggers Twitter
Twitter, of course, had plenty to say about Trump’s golf outing while also not conceding the presidency to Biden. The tweets came fast and furious on Sunday afternoon.

Another twitter user points the symbolism held by the photo of Trump playing golf with seemingly with no one else around.
Quite the metaphor: he’s way off in the weeds, standing all alone, flailing away when there’s clearly no hope of hitting this shot, and he’s going to claim he birdied this hole.— YeOldeHistoryTeacher (@cliffb714) November 8, 2020
“Quite the metaphor,” the tweet reads. “He is way off in the weeds, standing all alone, flailing away when there’s clearly no hope of hitting this shot, and he’s going to claim he birdied this hole.”
Typical Donald. Ejecting from reality when it gets too hard.— Autarkh (@Autarkh) November 8, 2020
“Typical Donald,” this Tweet says. “Ejecting from reality when it gets too hard.”
Though he lost the election, Donald Trump does not appear ready to concede the presidency. He is alleging widespread voter fraud, despite little evidence fraud occurred in the election.
