Running? Vacation? Working Vacation ?: Inside the 17 -day sojourn of Donald Trump

Washington( CNN) President Donald Trump is in the midst of a 17 -day stay away from Washington at Trump National Golf Course in Bedminster, New Jersey. Trump seems desperate to make clear that he is working on this vacation , not just taking hour away from the job. But, is he? I reached out to CNN White House super-producer Kevin Liptakfor some answers. Our email exchange, edited lightly for flowing, is below. The most amazing thing to me? Trump wants to be interred at Bedminster!

So, my question for you is how much of this is “working” and how much of it is “vacation”?

Liptak: The easy answer there is that it’s impossible to know. Unlike past administrations, Trump’s aides don’t tell the press when, for instance, he’s playing a round of golf or feeing out with friends. They do tell the press when he’s on phone calls with national security officials or meeting with members of his Cabinet.
