A young man Taylor Funk, who joined President Donald Trump for a round of golf at the West Palm Beach course on New Year’s Day told CNN the president was “fully in the moment” during the game — and freed himself of any distractions.
“It was all golf,” Funk, who identifies himself as a pro golfer on his Twitter page, said on New Day Tuesday morning when asked whether the president worked at all on the course, or took any calls or briefings. “He was fully in the moment and with us.”
Later, he added: “I feel whatever he’s doing he’s going to be doing 100% at that time. He wanted to play good golf and we wanted to watch him play good golf. It was a lot of fun because he actually did play some good golf, and was getting excited making some putts.”
Funk also shared a YouTube video of himself golfing alongside the president on Monday, which offered a rare, unobstructed glimpse of Trump on the course.
