Saturday, President Trump showed up at Trump National Golf Club in Potomac Falls, Virginia, for meetings in one of a string of golf outings taking place since he took office.
The president’s visit to Virginia comes the day after House Republicans decided to pull the healthcare reform legislation that would repeal and replace failing Obamacare, which fell short of receiving enough votes from GOP lawmakers to pass.
It has not been disclosed who the president is meeting with at the luxurious golf club, according to The Hill.
A post on Twitter suggests that the president is scheduled to have lunch with friends at the location and has no plans to play golf.

Trump is taking heat from liberals on social media for his frequent golf course visits of late, particularly after repeatedly criticizing former President Obama for spending many of his weekends golfing or vacationing during his presidency.
