Trump angry at own golf course, says ‘I hate this f**king hole’

Donald Trump snapped at his own golf course on Thanksgiving, and exclaimed that he hated “this f**king hole’, as he played before having dinner.  

The outburst came as the US president paid a visit to Trump National Golf Club in Potomac Falls, Virginia, where he spent Thursday morning.

Video obtained by TMZ showed Mr Trump teeing off at the 800-acre resort, around 20 miles northwest of Washington DC and the White House, when he exclaimed “ah s**t!”, moments after he had swung at the ball.

As the ball disappeared into the distance, he added that “I hate this f**king hole”, while personnel behind the camera laughed at the remarks.

He has now played some 300 times as president, with 298 visits to Trump National Golf Clubs alone, according to GolfNewsNet analysis.
