President Trump reportedly invited members of the Coast Guard to join him in a round of golf, according to The Daily Caller.
But the best part was that he gave a front row seat to CNN, who’d been stalking his golf outings through a row of trees earlier that week.

“President Trump closed down his golf course today so members of the Coast Guard could play. It was to thank them for their hard work and for patrolling the waters near Mar-a-Lago,” one tweet read.
Trump also addressed the servicemen and women, saying, “it’s an honor to have you on the course.”
According to the White House pool report, sixty members of the Coast Guard accepted Trump’s invitation to use his golf course for the day. Trump also provided the service members lunch.
