Although he may seem like a pretty gruff individual, there are plenty of things that bring Donald Trump joy. Things like WRITING IN ALL CAPS, giving people weird (and sometimes racist) nicknames, and taking credit for things he had nothing to do with. Oh, and golf. He also really, really likes golf.
So much so that he's spent a considerable amount of time playing the game during his presidency — or at least standing on golf courses looking sad.
The president's golf habit has even apparently caught the eye of the Secret Service.
On Christmas Day, Trump tweeted that he planned on getting "back to work" after the holiday.He also said that America is becoming greater "faster than anyone anticipated." What does that mean, you ask? Nothing. It means pretty much nothing. But so do most of Donald Trump's tweets.
Anyway, we're looking forward to that whole "getting back to work" thing Trump mentioned. The man clearly takes his vacation time very seriously.

The next day, Liptak shared additional photos of Trump at the golf course.

It seems as though Trump wasn't a fan of Liptak's photos, though. Shortly after they were posted, this truck was found:

Real mature move, huh?For someone who constantly berates and insults others, it seems like Trump could stand to grow some slightly thicker skin. The U.S. Secret Service eventually had to comment on the truck being there. Their remarks were surprisingly a bit snippy...
"The USSS is in the business of protection and investigations," their statement read.

Well. OK, then!If you read the statement closely, it basically works out to mean, "The Secret Service has better things to do than make the petty move of hiring a truck to block some reporter's view of the president shirking his duties and working on his golf swing." ...Unlike the president, who apparently considers said golf swing to be his main concern this week.
The Palm Beach County Sherriff's Department also denied having anything to do with the truck:
