New Delhi [India], Feb. 13 (ANI): As he headed for Washington after his weekend spent golfing with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida on Sunday, United States President Donald Trump took yet another swat at the media for choosing to ignore his 'enthusiastic supporters', who had lined up the roads to apparently cheer for him. "Just leaving Florida. Big crowds of enthusiastic supporters lining the road that the FAKE NEWS media refuses to mention. Very dishonest!," the President tweeted. However, more than the President's tweet, what seems to be taking Twitter by storm is the string of pictures which show people with signboards.lashing out at Trump, which is contrary to what he claims. Meanwhile, Trump's golf outing with Abe has come under massive scrutiny as the former took his counterpart to the Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach which is owned by his family. Trump took to his social media handle and tweeted a picture of himself and Abe in the golf course. "Having a great time hosting Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in the United States!," Trump tweeted. "Played golf today with Prime Minister Abe of Japan and @TheBig_Easy, Ernie Els, and had a great time. Japan is very well represented! (sic)," he added. Trump in another tweet informed about the dinner with Prime Minister Abe and his representatives at the Winter White House (Mar-a-Lago). Abe and his wife have been staying at Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate in nearby Palm Beach, according to The New York Times. The media was kept away from the Trump Golf Course during Abe's visit this weekend to South Florida. But the latest incident reminded that the Trump's Presidency is mixing his official role with the business that bears his name. Earlier, Trump had said that he had resigned from positions in hundreds of business entities. The billionaire businessman has received criticism for holding onto his business interests even as he worked on becoming the President. (ANI)
