The White House corrected a reporter on Tuesday to insist that President Trump would be hard at work during his Thanksgiving vacation, before he departed for his golf course in West Palm Beach, Fla.
"[White House deputy press secretary] Lindsay Walters briefly addressed the pool and said that the president has been briefed on the Navy aircraft crash," Washington Post reporter Jenna Johnson wrote in a pool report at 7:56 a.m. Tuesday morning.
"She also said that the president plans to make a number of calls this week, especially related to tax reform, and that the White House will provide readouts of those calls. Otherwise expects a low-key day," Walters added.
Ten minutes later, Johnson sent a follow-up report containing a correction from the Walters:
"While the White House communications staff expects the press pool to have a 'low-key' day, the president will NOT have a low-key day and has a full schedule of meetings and phone calls."
The president, who is spending Thanksgiving at his Mar-a-Lago beach club, has routinely come under fire for spending his weekends golfing at Trump-owned courses in New Jersey, Florida, and Virginia.
White House aides would not say whether Trump also planned to hit the links on Tuesday.
