When it comes to golfing, President Obama doesn’t hear “no” very often, but he heard it twice over the Labor Day weekend when at least three exclusive golf courses turned the president down for a round to avoid upsetting well-heeled members who didn’t want to put up with the security hassles.
Now, billionaire businessman Donald Trump wants to make up for it.
Trump owns one of the Westchester, N.Y., golf courses that rebuffed the president. His Trump National was too busy catering to its high-powered membership to entertain the most powerful leader in the world.
So the man who wrote the book on “The Art of the Deal” has a deal for Obama.
If Obama resigns from office NOW, thereby doing a great service to the country—I will give him free lifetime golf at any one of my courses!

The White House hasn’t responded to the offer but Trump’s offer is getting plenty of attention elsewhere (even outside Joe Biden’s man cave).
@realDonaldTrump Great deal for the US citizens too. Win win!

Well, he does seem to have a problem with that.
Some people even offered to chip in.
Donald Trump offers a lifetime of free golf to Obama at any of his golf courses if he resigns now. I will add 10 cases of beer. @megynkelly

Others thought The Donald was playing with fire.
@realDonaldTrump why would Obama do that when he could just have the IRS take your course from you? — Steven Shaw (@czechov) September 10, 2014
But there’s a truly serious downside.
