With 2016 coming to a close, President-elect Donald Trump is now just three weeks away from being sworn into the White House. As part of his celebration, Trump decided to hit the golf course, but not everyone was welcome.

Trump's golf trouble

Heading into the 2016 presidential election, Donald Trump was considered nothing more than a joke candidate. The former host of "The Apprentice" had hinted of a potential run for office for some time, but was never taken too serious, outside of his short-lived attempt with the Reform Party in 2000. Over the last four decades, Trump's name has been well-known, especially in the North East as his brand name sits high above various sky scrappers.

On man who knows Trump well is Harry Hurt 3rd, who wrote the biography "Lost Tycoon: The Many Lives of Donald J. Trump." In the book, Hurt wrote about Trump's ex-wife, Ivana, who claimed she was "raped" by the president-elect, which did not go offer well with the billionaire real estate mogul on the golf course, as reported by Mediaite on January 1.

In a move that didn't surprise too many, Donald Trump decided to spend the new year playing a few rounds of golf at Trump International, ditching the media and the press in the process.

Also in attendance was Harry Hunt, who was spending time with David Koch, the mega Republican political donor.

When Harry Hurt attempted to congratulate Trump on his victory, the president-elect reportedly lashed out, kicking Hurt out of the golf course for "that sh*t you wrote." Trump went on to tell Hurt that he was "rough" on him, but the author defended himself, telling him that everything he wrote was accurate.

It was at this point, when Hurt was forced to leave. Hurt elaborated further with a post on his official Facebook page.

Moving forward

Donald Trump has had a strained relationship with the media and the press ever since his campaign announcement when he referred to illegal immigrants from Mexico as "rapists" and "murderers." Over the last year and a half, Trump has branded the press as "untrustworthy" and "horrible." On Inauguration Day, Trump will finally become the next commander in chief, and only time will tell if his relationship with the media improves.
