Graham tweets about ‘spectacular’ Trump golf course
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) tweeted about golfing with President Trump at one of Trump’s courses shortly after the pair wrapped up their round.
“Trump International Golf Club is a spectacular golf course,” Graham tweeted.
“Great day of fun playing with @POTUS @realDonaldTrump.”

The pair golfed at the Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Fla., on Sunday.
“The president is playing a round of golf with Sen. Lindsey Graham, where the two are discussing the tax cuts and reform legislation and the importance of fully funding our national security needs in upcoming government spending negotiations,” said White House spokesman Raj Shah.
Walter Shaub, the former head of the Office of Government Ethics, quickly replied to Graham’s tweet promoting Trump’s for-profit business.
Et tu, @LindseyGrahamSC? Et tu? It's ok that you had fun golfing, but the presidency's not supposed to be for profit (so.. ix-nay on the pectactular-say, kay-oay?)

Graham and Trump have golfed together before at Trump’s course in Virginia.
Graham told GOLF Magazine that Trump had shot a 73 during their game in October, a score the publication called “unlikely, to say the least.”
