Golfing with Trump: President Trump is making millions of dollars from lobbyists and CEOs who have joined his private golf clubs, putting them in close contact with the president. While the White House refuses to disclose the details of Trump’s golf trips, USA Today reported last week that it had uncovered about 50 executives of companies with federal contracts and 21 lobbyists and trade group officials who have each paid fees that can exceed $100,000 to join the three clubs in Florida, New Jersey, and Virginia that Trump has visited most often as president. About two-thirds of the lobbyists and CEOs played on one of the 58 days the president was at the clubs this year. They include the leader of a pesticide trade group that successfully lobbied the Trump administration not to ban an insecticide linked to health risks, and a lawyer defending Saudi Arabia from allegations that it aided the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
