Justin Rose has revealed former world number one golfer Tiger Woods is in "good shape" ahead of his latest comeback from injury at the Hero World Challenge next week. "I'm not going to have time to go play golf".
In an early morning tweeted, Mr. Trump said after the call he would be "heading over to Trump National Golf Club, Jupiter, to play golf (quickly) with Tiger Woods and Dustin Johnson". He then had to take the path of Mar-a-Lago (Palm Beach) to discuss "economy and job creation in the United States". However, Trump noted that it would be a quick round so he could get back to work on bringing more jobs back to America.
Trump's tweet was in response to one from his social media chief, Dan Scavino.

Their talk came days after Erdogan attended a trilateral meeting with the Russian and Iranian leaders in Sochi, Russia, to promote a peaceful settlement in Syria. It expressly prohibits the USA president from receiving "any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever" from a foreign government or its dignitaries without the approval of Congress.
Erdoğan later said he and Trump discussed the Syrian crisis and other regional issues, as well as ties between Turkey and the US.
