"Trump, as of Friday, has spent over 80 days at one of his golf courses, according to CNN's count."

President Donald Trump left Friday to spend the holiday at his Mar-A-Lago resort in Florida, which CNN reports will be one of over 100 times the president visited a property he owns since taking office.

Trump's Friday arrival to Mar-A-Lago will mark the 106th day Trump has visited one of his properties as President, a fact that critics argue helps the businessman-turned-politician boost the bottom line at The Trump Organization. Trump transferred his business holdings to a trust run by his sons before taking office earlier this year, but stopped short of selling off his holdings.

CNN offers a glance at how Trump's travel destinations break down:

  • 34 days at Mar-A-Lago
  • 40 days at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey
  • 23 visits to Trump National Golf Club in Northern Virginia
  • Several days at Trump Tower in New York

All presidents take vacations, but Trump, a celebrity before he took office, is rare in that he used that perch to slam former President Barack Obama for playing golf while running the country. Trump, as of Friday, has spent over 80 days at one of his golf courses, according to CNN's count.
