Once upon a time, US President Donald Trump said that if you want to go on a vacation, you should think about switching jobs. However, he's now going on a 17-day vacation to his Bedminster, New Jersey golf club.

​What’s even more interesting is how the New Yorker also scolded then-President Barack Obama for going on vacations and playing rounds of golf. 

​Since POTUS invaded the Oval Office, he’s gone on a total of 21 golf excursions compared to Obama’s eight-year total of 11, Politifact indicated. The number could be larger since the White House staff fails to confirm whether Trump is actually golfing on many of his trips away from Washington.

​On the campaign trail, The Donald promised he’d ditch the greens in favor of making deals, but it seems some vices are just too darn hard to let go of, eh?

​Also, who could forget those tweets of Trump complaining about the amount of money the Obamas spent on their vacation?

​Ahem: Trump’s been out of town 13 of the last 28 weekends. He’s on track to outspend Obama’s eight years worth of vacations in just one year alone.

​While Don enjoys his upcoming vacay, we’ll leave you with this last blast from the past. 

​Trump will play golf at Bedminster, but where’s he heading to after Jersey?
