Bridgewater, New Jersey( CNN) President Donald Trump broke the mold as a presidential candidate. And as a vacationing commander in chief, he’s doing the same.
Trump is in the middle of a 17 -day vacation, fleeing the humid confines of Washington as the White House undergoes extensive renovations to play golf, meet with friends and air his grievances on Twitter, all within the limits of his sprawling golf club in suburban New Jersey.
But don’t call it a vacation, say White House aides. Trump is talking to aides and receiving regular briefings even as he temporarily resides 170 miles north of the White House, they said.
