The time includes almost 40 days at his golf course in Bedminster, N.J. and another 40 days at Mar-a-Lago, his resort in Palm Beach Fla., the Journal said.

The White House said the First Family spent the morning opening presents and then posting a Christmas message on Twiter.

Trump traveled from his Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach to the Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach to play with PGA Tour golfer Bryson DeChambau, former PGA player Dana Quigley and Sen. Prior to assuming office, the president handed control of the Trump Foundation to his sons, Eric and Donald Jr., but refused to divest from his business interests, which include the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster and Mar-a-Lago; the president calls the latter his "winter White House".

On Christmas Day, the president vowed to get back to work the next day in order to "make America great again".

Tuesday marks Trump's 85th visit to one of his golf properties as president, according to a tally kept by NBC News.

Although the-then business mogul had criticized Obama's tendency to spend his time playing golf during his presidential term, it turned out that in the same number of days that Trump has now spent in the office, Obama took to playing the sport a total of 11 times.

Fresh from a victory lap over his biggest legislative accomplishment as president - his signature on a $1.5 trillion tax cut bill on Friday - Trump said he hoped to parlay that win into more successes in 2018. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who spend back-to-back weekends in October playing golf with the president at his Northern Virginia country club, agreed with the White House's notion.

The president had promised during the 2016 election campaign that he would be so busy working at the White House that he would not have time to play golf.

Then early Tuesday morning, the president gave indications he was going to do just that - by vowing to work with Democrats on health care and taking shots at the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the infamous golden showers dossier. In this photo, Trump, and his granddaughter Kai visit Trump International Golf Links in Aberdeen, Scotland, June 25, 2016.

That preceded several hours of Twitter silence from the president while the president played golf. "Believe me", Trump said during a rally in August past year.
