As #Donald Trump spends another weekend at one of his private golf resorts, he's also taking time to keep up with his favorite cable news channel during the holiday week [VIDEO].

It's been almost a year since Donald Trump was sworn into office as the 45th President of the United States, and it's resulted in once of the most controversial starts [VIDEO] to a presidency in recent memory. Despite making multiple promises on the campaign trail, the former host of "The Apprentice" has failed to follow through even with a Republican majority-control of the Senate and House of Representatives.

As the president continues his feuds with the Democratic Party and the mainstream media, he's even engaged in a war of words with fellow Republicans, making passing legislation a major issue. With the pressure mounting on the White House, including the questions surrounding the ongoing investigation into Russian election interference, Trump and his team are getting ready to celebrate their first #Holiday Season in office. On Wednesday, the White House announced that the president had a "full schedule" ahead of him, but Trump did take time to play some golf and watch Fox News. As seen on his Twitter account on November 22, the president decided to tweet out some travel info for the holidays while bragging about the number of Americans traveling and in traffic.

Taking to his Twitter feed on Wednesday afternoon, Donald Trump took a break from his golf game to sit back and watch some Fox News.

After the network gave an update about the traffic and travel during Thanksgiving, the president sent a message to his 43 million followers.

"51 Million American to travel this weekend - highest number in twelve years (AAA)," Donald Trump tweeted, before adding, "Traffic and airports are running very smoothly!" Of course, the commander in chief tagged Fox News in the post for good measure.

Social media response

After Donald Trump posted his Fox News Thanksgiving travel message to Twitter, critics of the president were quick to sound off. "This is an absolute all-timer. He's literally live-tweeting obligatory holiday travel segments," MSNBC host Chris Hayes tweeted out.

"You tweet nonsense daily.

How did your rounds of golf go today?" another Twitter user wondered. "That's also due to you? do you somehow have magical powers?" a follow-up tweet rhetorically asked.

"How embarrassing is it to be you?" an additional tweet asked. "Why do you have to take credit for everything?" yet another post wondered. The backlash continued as the opposition to Donald Trump continued even on Thanksgiving Eve.
