Trump will embark on a 17-day getaway to his 500-acre private golf club off Lamington Road in Bedminster, New Jersey.

Donald Trump arrived in New Jersey Friday for a working vacation that's expected to be his longest stint away from the White House since becoming president.

The White House declined to comment on the leaked transcripts Thursday except to call it a national security matter potentially capable of complicating the president's ability to negotiate with foreign leaders.

"Highest Stock Market EVER, best economic numbers in years, unemployment lowest in 17 years, wages raising, border secure, S.C.: No WH chaos!" he wrote, noting that evening that it was "A great day at the White House!".

White House Deputy Press Secretary Lindsay Walters told reporters that the South Portico steps on the South Lawn will also be repaired.

Now, of course, no one is arguing that the president shouldn't be able to ever have confidential conversations, or that no leaks can potentially be risky. Today, as critics point out, Mr Trump's 17-day holiday is almost twice as long as the one Mr Obama took in August during his first year.

In a similar attack two years earlier, he tweeted: "President Obama's vacation is costing taxpayers millions of dollars - unbelievable!".

For nearly a decade, Mika Brzezinski and I had the pleasure of occasionally crossing paths with Ivanka, Don Jr. and Eric Trump. "Aloha!" In 2014 he tweeted: "President Obama has a major meeting on the N.Y.C. Ebola outbreak, with people flying in from all over the country, but made a decision to play golf!"

The transcripts were based on records kept by White House notetakers who monitored Trump's calls. At the end of August, Donald Trump has taken 53 days of "leisure" compared to 15 for Barack Obama, according to this count.

The first season of Kevin Can Wait was very successful, so getting rid of one of the stars was a curious decision. After the case was closed, Kevin came home to his wife and learned that Donna has quit her job as a school nurse.

Besides the small group of aides traveling to New Jersey with the President, West Wing staffers won't take a vacation themselves while the renovations are completed: they're just moving next door to the Eisenhower Executive Office Building.

Trump has also failed to win any major legislative scores in his first seven months in office, and is at odds with several Republican lawmakers on multiple fronts.

"Our relationship with Russian Federation is at an all-time & very risky low".

A recent poll from Quinnipiac University found that only 33 percent of American voters approve of his performance in office, while 61 percent were against him. A spokesperson for the Trump Organization did not immediately respond to questions about exact numbers on membership or fees.

'If you are not happy, leave!'

"What we've seen in the past six months is a new president who has never governed and trying to adjust, and he is finding the right people for the right jobs", said Chris Ruddy, a longtime friend. Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, former Yankee's Manager Joe Torre and even former President Bill Clinton have all had lockers in the clubhouse, according to Golf.com.

"L$3 eaving on vacation, huh?"

The tweet by Fox seems to be in reference to a former tweet by Trump in which he stated his aversion to vacations.

"I'm going to be working for you", Trump said in August 2016.
