Trump interrupts CEOs’ meeting to regale them with ‘hole in 1’ golf story (VIDEO)
The executives were at the White House on Thursday for a discussion on job growth when Trump interrupted the CEO and chairman of General Electric, Jeff Immelt, to tell the panel: “Jeff actually watched me make a hole in one.”
The mere mentioning of the incident wasn’t enough, however, and Trump called on Immelt to recount the story.
“Should you tell that story?” Trump asked. Immelt obliged and told the bemused audience how he played golf with Trump as part of his “assignment” when he owned NBC, to persuade him to take part in the reality TV show, The Apprentice.
"President Trump goes up to a par 3 on his course. He looks at the three of us and says, 'You realize, of course, I'm the richest golfer in the world?' ... then gets a hole in one."
“I have to say I seen the magic before,” he added.
The room broke out into a ripple of laughter before Trump chimed in: “It’s crazy. "No, I actually said I was the best golfer of all the rich people, to be exact, and then I got a hole in one. It was sort of cool."
Trump, who was highly critical of Obama’s golfing trips, has reportedly spent the last three weekends perfecting his hole-in-one.
During his days as a private citizen, Trump regularly blasted then-President Obama for neglecting his official duties and squandering taxpayers’ money – all in the name of golf.
