Donald Trump has tweeted about golf at least 460 times since creating his Twitter account in 2009.

He’s promoted the courses he owns, praised the game as a source of mental and physical development, critiqued other courses, and bragged about whom he’s playing with.

Between 2011 and 2016, he also tweeted at least 27 complaints, jokes, or scoldings about Barack Obama playing golf while president. Some of the following could be considered retweets, but Trump’s long had a unique Twitter style that blurs the line between tweets about him and those he writes himself.

23rd Jul 2012 from Twitlonger: Who else could take 16 vacations, play over 100 rounds of golf and hold over 300 fundraisers while serving as POTUS besides @BarackObama--& not one jobs meeting.

Also, he sometimes seemed to argue presidents shouldn’t enjoy sports at all.

That’s a lot of tweets about presidents spending too much time on sports!
