CNN filmed President Donald Trump playing golf at one of his courses in Florida on Dec. 26 even though Trump claimed that he was getting “back to work” that same day.
Trump was golfing again, instead of working, on Dec. 27. However, CNN was block from filming him, a First Amendment right.
CNN reporter Dan Merica said that someone in the White House apparently ordered the ordered the truck to block CNN camera views — through a hedge — of Trump playing golf:
This may seem trivial, but it is important to get video of the president as he does these things on a daily basis. The president and the White House have tried to obscure the fact that President Trump golfs on a regular basis.
CNN Don Lemon said CNN “may have to get taller cameras” to film Trump golfing.
