15 minutes. The President of the United States (USA), Donald Trump, was seen playing golf this Saturday, at his club outside Washington.
The president was caught by local media playing golf surrounded by members of the Secret Service who remained at a certain distance from him.
NBC reported that the president returned to one of his golf courses after 75 days. This Saturday, Trump visited his golf club in Sterling, Virginia.
The report stated that the last time Trump was at one of his properties was during the weekend of March 6, when he moved to Mar-a-Lago, in Palm Beach (Florida), where a day later he had dinner with the President of Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro.
After that visit, it was learned that the press chief of the Brazilian Government, Fabio Wajngarten, tested positive for coronavirus, as well as the Brazilian ambassador to Washington, Nestor Forster, and one of the senators of that country, Nelsinho Trad.
NBC indicated that although the president visited Camp David twice, it is not clear if he played golf during those work weekends.
This is the first day of a long weekend in the US for the celebration of Memorial Day on Monday.
This weekend, Los Angeles opened beaches and parks to the public with certain restrictions. This measure was also adopted by the states of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.
New York City only allows citizens to walk or sit while maintaining social distance, due to the impact of COVID-19 that claimed more than 21,000 lives in the Big Apple.
