"After Turkey call", he wrote in the tweet, "I will be heading over to Trump Naitonal Golf Club, Jupiter, to play golf (quickly) with Tiger Woods and Dustin Johnson".

Trump, who is spending Thanksgiving weekend at Mar-a-Lago, said he will play with the golf legend as well as Dustin Johnson, now ranked the world's No. 1 golfer.

Donald Trump says he will play golf with Tiger Woods "quickly" before getting back to work.

He said he would do it after speaking to the Turkish president about bringing peace to the Middle East.

Trump also complained again Friday about football players who kneel during the National Anthem to protest racism and police brutality.

President Donald Trump is experiencing an approval rating so low that it has sunk below that of reviled former presidents like Richard M. Nixon, who was embroiled in the Watergate scandal.

Although Trump has rarely put out his golf plans publicly, his tweet also made clear that he was on a working holiday, noting a call with Turkey and then back to Mar-a-Lago for more talks about bring jobs back to the U.S.

Friday marks the third day in a row that the President has spent at one of his golf clubs.

For his part, Trump pledged to largely forego golf while in office, saying he was "not going to have time to play golf". This will be the second time Trump has played with Woods since winning the November 9, 2016 election over Hillary Clinton.

President Trump's supporters know he's incredibly busy with his America First agenda, and are thus willing to give him a break for spending some time on the golf course once in a while.

The US president is about to play around of golf with two of the sport's legends.
