During an appearance on Fox News, Lara Trump reflected on her father-in-law’s time at the White House.
“I’m old enough to remember when we had a president who worked all day, every day for the American people,” Lara Trump said.
She added, “And by the way, he took no salary. Of course, I’m talking about President Donald Trump who in four years in office made $4, that’s right because he had to take $1 a year. And I struggle to figure out any job where you could just not show up for a quarter of the days and keep your job.”
Lara Trump commented on the criticism the former president received when he took trips to go golfing.
“Now he clearly wasn’t golfing a quarter of his presidency, but let me refresh everybody’s mind out there about what had happened at about this same point in Donald Trump’s presidency one year into office: the American people had the biggest tax cuts in American history under President Donald Trump,” Lara Trump said.
She continued, “He had removed so many regulations on businesses. Small businesses were booming. Companies were moving their factories from overseas back to America at a historic rate one year into Donald Trump’s presidency. And he had also gotten rid of ISIS one year into his presidency.”

Turning her attention to Biden’s trips to Delaware, Lara Trump told Fox News, “So I think it is time to stop vacationing, Joe Biden. I think instead of walking your dog masked up on the beach in Delaware, by the way, we still don’t know what happened to the first dog. It’s time to roll your sleeves up, get to work in the White House because vacationing clearly is not working.”

During a White House press briefing on Tuesday, New York Post reporter Steven Nelson mentioned data that shows Biden “spent a quarter of his days, at least partially in Delaware.”
He asked White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, “Will the White House be reconsidering the decision not to release visitor log information from his Delaware residences?”
She replied, “Well, the president goes to Delaware because it’s his home. It’s also where his son and his former wife are buried. And it’s a place that is obviously close to his heart. A lot of presidents go visit their home when they are president.”
Psaki added, “We also have gone a step further than the prior administration and many administrations in releasing visitor logs of people who visit the White House. And we’ll continue to do that.”
According to The Washington Post, it is estimated that former President Trump played around 261 rounds of golf during his time at the White House. That would mean he played a round of golf every 5.6 days.
