Inside Trump (Nov 24th, 2017)

Just a quick Inside Trump update for your holiday weekend reading pleasure today. We'll resume our normal publishing schedule on Monday!

President Trump hit the links today with professional golfers Tiger Woods and Dustin Johnson, but vowed that the game will proceed "quickly." The threesome played at the Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter, Florida, near Mar-a-Lago, the private club where the President is spending the holiday weekend. In a tweet, Trump acknowledged the golf game, while also mentioning a phone call with the President of Turkey and economic talks as part of his agenda for the day. Trump had vowed during the presidential campaign that he was "not going to have time to play golf"; his trips to his own golf clubs have been subject of intense media scrutiny. By some estimates, Trump has played golf 34 times, and made more than 70 visits to his own golf clubs, during his presidency. – USAT

President Trump will meet with Senate Republicans to discuss tax reform on Tuesday. Bloomberg reports that Senate Republicans may put their version of a tax reform bill up for a "make-it-or-break-it" vote this coming week. The vote could come following a dramatic, overnight marathon debate session, during which Democrats are expected to attempt to delay the proceedings. Republicans currently have a 52 vote majority, and would need at least 50 votes to pass the measure. Among the more controversial provisions in the Senate bill is the repeal of Obamacare's "individual mandate," which applies a tax penalty to Americans who do not pay for health insurance but helps to stabilize the marketplace. This week, Alaska Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski - who had been on the fence about the provision - announced that she'd support the individual mandate's repeal. Should the Republicans get the Senate bill passed, they would need to begin negotiating a compromise with Republicans in the House, who have passed a separate bill of their own. – WAPO

During a Thanksgiving Day visit to a US Coast Guard station in Florida, President Trump remarked about the Air Force's F-35 fighter, which he described as "almost like an invisible fighter." Trump's lengthy comments about the F-35 quickly went viral on social media. The F-35 is small and designed to be less visible to radar systems, though it is not technically invisible. Production and development of the F-35 has been difficult and costly. Nonetheless, the President hailed the project, relating to members of the Coast Guard that he was told "it wins every time, because the enemy cannot see it, even if it's right next to it, it can't see it." – GUARDIAN
