On the 20th March 2017 Sean Spicer defended Trump’s visits to golf courses by saying “The president is entitled to a bit of privacy at this point, which we’ve always agreed to. We bring the protective pool, but the president is entitled to a bit of privacy as well.”, “It’s the same reason he can have lunch or dinner with somebody”, “How you use the game of golf is something that he’s talked about,” and “just because you go somewhere, doesn’t necessarily mean… you get it.” Sean Spicer news conference 2017/03/20
