President Trump has always had a way of surprising the world with his audacious actions.
This Friday the POTUS spent his day at a golfing tournament. However, you will most likely not hear a word about it from CNN. Recently CNN threw up their complaints about the President because they were not able to take pictures of him on the network.
In return, Donald Trump gave everyone front row seats to the show!
He showed his appreciation to the U.S. Coast Guard by making a special “thank you” as he played a golf tournament with a group of the members. President Trump invited the Coast Guard members with open arms and explained to them how he wanted to have a “fun tournament” and figure out who the best player is. “It’s an honor to have you on the course,” Trump said.

Over 60 of the Coast Guard members accepted his invitation, and to top it off, the President provided lunch for all who came.
According to ijr:
On Friday, President Donald Trump closed down his golf course so members of the Coast Guard could play in a tournament. The gesture was to thank them for their service and hard work. It was also to thank them for their part in keeping the first family safe by patrolling the waters near Mar-a-Lago.
“These brave men and women patrol the waterways near Palm Beach and Mar-a-Lago everyday. The President wanted to thank these service members personally for their service to this nation,” said Deputy White House Press Secretary Hogan Gidley.
Talking to the press, Trump explained how they came up with the idea. “So I said, ‘Would a couple people like to play golf?’ And I had about 50 people raise their hands, and about 75 people showed up,” he said. “So today … we closed the course.”
While Trump was with the group, he also held up the Coast Guard‘s flag:
Lunch is also being provided for them by Trump, according to the White House.
