President Donald Trump continued his holiday Twitter marathon on Friday, slamming National Football League players for their persistent protesting and also revealing plans to hit the links with two professional golfers.

Three-handicapper Trump and 14-time major victor Woods have previously golfed together though.

Donald Trump just can not help himself.

Woods played with President Trump and Dustin Johnson in Florida on Friday and the videos which emerged earned promising reviews.

Trump, staying at Mar-a-Lago for the Thanksgiving holiday, tweeted that he will be speaking with Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan about "bringing peace to the mess that I inherited in the Middle East".

Trump claims that there is a firewall between him and the operations of the Trump Organization while he is in the White House, but there is evidence to the contrary, including admissions by his sons that they speak frequently with their father about the business. However, Trump noted that it would be a quick round so he could get back to work on bringing more jobs back to America.

This isn't just a round of golf between a President and a citizen he admires; it's a round of golf between American business partners who are relying heavily on an investment from the Chinese government. Despite his pre-presidential proclamation, he is on the greens very frequently, with Gold News tracking the president on the golf courses more than 70 times in less than one year. Relations between North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies Turkey and the United States have soured over a number of issues, including USA support to Syrian Kurdish fighters which Ankara considers to be terrorists due to their links to outlawed Kurdish rebels in Turkey. Their conversation came days after Erdoğan attended a meeting with Russian and Iranian leaders in Sochi, Russia, to promote a peaceful settlement in Syria.
