Former President Donald Trump got tongues wagging when he made a surprise trip to Virginia. But reports have surfaced purportedly revealing why the former President made the trip.
According to a report by Business Insider, besides taking in a round of golf on his Virginia course, Trump was also overseeing renovations to the course ahead of the LIV Golf event it will host next year.
On Monday, Trump had eluded to the renovations he was overseeing when he posted on Truth Social, “Working today at @TrumpWashingtonDC on the Potomac River. What an incredible place.”
But the unannounced visit increased speculation that he was in town to sort out his legal woes or deliver a surprise address at a Washington, D.C. event.
Speculation heightened when the former President was filmed riding around the Virginia course without playing a round.
Commenting on footage showing the President and a large entourage moving around the course in golf carts, former Watergate star witness John Dean wrote on Twitter: “This is much like a mob meeting, right out of the movies! Golf shirts so no wires. Move around so no unseen electronic fixes. Way out of camera range so no lip reading.”
But the trip’s intentions were far less nefarious and had been planned. Staffers on the course knew Trump would be visiting since last Friday and began preparing for his arrival.
Rather than being nefarious figures, the men spotted near Trump included Trump National General Manager Joe Roediger, Grounds Crew Director Brad Enie, and founder and director of Superior Gold Concepts, John Copeland.
