Donald Trump, the American president, has been under fierce fire on Twitter and other social media of late, as he takes a holiday of sorts in New Jersey. However, the avid tweeter has told the Twitterverse that while he may be on his golf course in Bedminster, New Jersey, it doesn't mean that he has stopped working. His next stop? New York.

The president's vacation

While Trump has come under a lot of fire because of his17-day vacation, he has denied claims that he is slacking off and just holidaying. According to the New York Times, Trump tweeted about his vacation at around 6 AM on Monday morning. In the tweet he explained that he is still working just as hard, even though he is temporarily based in New Jersey.

He told the media that the White House is currently undergoing renovations and so convenience demanded that he rather spend some time on his golf course in New Jersey.

Trump has been adamantly defending himself, throughout his time on the golf course. Of course, he doesn't want to look like a hypocrite after he so harshly judged President Barack Obama's holidays and golf! According to ABC News, Trump does actually play golf himself, it is just something that he tries to keep out of the public eye.

Off to New York next

In the same tweet on Monday, Trump announced that he would be heading to New York soon for further meetings there. This is only the second time that Trump has returned to his hometown, since being elected president in 2016. Trump has yet to visit his Fifth Avenue house where eager tourists take selfies in the lobby each day.

Hope Hicks, a White House spokeswoman told the media on Monday that plans were still being made and that the press would be informed about Trump's visit to New York as soon as possible.

The New York Police Department have been planning for Trump's safety in New York ever since the President tweeted his plans to visit on Monday. According to the New York Times, it costs around $308 000 a day to keep the President safe during his stay in the Big Apple. However, the city's mayor, Bill de Blasio, informed press that nothing would stop the N.Y.P.D from protecting the president. In a statement he added that "The N.Y.P.D. is the most expert police force on Earth in terms of handling visits by an American president."

This certainly looks like it is going to end up being a very interesting holiday for the president. It will be interesting to see what exactly he gets up to in New York and what his reaction is to seeing his house again after so long.
