Trump Plays Golf Again As Coronavirus Death Toll Nears 100,000

From threatening to "override" states if they didn't permit the reopening of houses of worship to pressuring states to reopen their businesses to restarting presidential travel - Mr Trump's weekend activities mark his latest attempt to return back to his presidential normal as the country continues to reckon with the toll of a global pandemic.

President Trump placed the ceremonial wreath at Arlington National Cemetery's Tomb of the Unknown Soldier on Memorial Day to honor the lives lost in defense of the nation and then shortly after traveled to Baltimore's Fort McHenry where the USA national anthem was inspired.

President Donald Trump on Monday lashed out at those who criticised him for playing golf over Memorial Day weekend as the USA stood on the brink of 100,000 reported coronavirus deaths. The president is determined to deploy the entire convention season parade to represent a nation and economy in full of what he calls a "transition to greatness".

Trump's two rounds this weekend deemed critics inappropriate during a national crisis and a weekend in which the American remembers his dead war.

Mr Cooper's office said that "state health officials are working with the RNC and will review its plans as they make decisions about how to hold the convention in Charlotte".

But given that Tar Heel State was a vital battleground in November, Trump could gain political advantage from campaigns that spur a basis against local Democrats.

North Carolina reported its biggest spike in cases on Saturday, though as is the case with each state it is sometimes hard to tell whether such rises represent a worsening epidemic or a rise in testing.

The mother told officials the other vehicle then blocked her in while the male passenger ambushed her, demanding drugs. The mother of a 9-year-old boy who was found dead in Miami-Dade County has been arrested in connection with his death.

In a series of tweets, Trump called out the US media whom he called "Fake & Totally Corrupt", for making his golf outing sound like a "mortal sin".

Trump's recent visit to the golf course did not sit well with netizens, who criticised him for being carefree.

Permanent debate over golf and the president raises the question of whether presidents should quit clubs over a period of four or eight years and foresee other interests or enjoy some free time out of the White House bubble.

"To get out and do some exercise, here are some stories about the fact that I played golf over the weekend". Photographs that appeared later on Twitter showed him swinging a golf club and driving alone in a cart on the course at his private Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Virginia.

"Nearly 100,000 lives have been lost, and tens of millions have lost their jobs. Meanwhile, the president spends his day golfing", Biden wrote in a tweet accompanying Saturday's online statement.

Joe Biden took a jab at President Donald Trump's round of golf Sunday in Virginia. President George W. Bush decided not to play golf for fear of poor optics after he sent Americans to war during his presidency.

Before becoming president, Trump had repeatedly criticized his predecessor, Democratic President Barack Obama, for playing golf, including during the 2014 Ebola outbreak.
