In the morning of Friday, the president of the United States Donald Trump has indicated that he plans to play golf with golf professionals, Tiger Woods and Dustin Johnson in the course of the day.

For his part, Trump pledged to largely forego golf while in office, saying he was "not going to have time to play golf".

Trump's tweet was in response to one from his social media chief, Dan Scavino. "Then back to Mar-a-Lago for talks on bringing even more jobs and companies back to the U.S.!"

Justin Rose has revealed former world number one golfer Tiger Woods is in "good shape" ahead of his latest comeback from injury at the Hero World Challenge next week. After Woods won the Cadillac Championship golf tournament in 2013 at a Trump property, Trump tweeted, "I remained strong for [Tiger Woods] during his hard period".

Trump, who through his Trump organization owns or operates 17 different golf courses or properties around the world, has been on the greens frequently - Golf News Net has tracked him visiting golf courses 70-plus times since his inauguration in January.

Trump and Woods have played golf together several times in the past, including last December at the Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Fla., as president-elect, according to the Palm Beach Post. Minutes later, the correction was that the president "will NOT have a low-key day".

It's unclear exactly which countries he's referring to, but Trump has cited $6 trillion in the past to assess USA spending on conflicts in the Middle East.
