It’s a tale of two vacations for, arguably, the two most powerful men in the world.
n Friday, President Donald Trump traveled to his New Jersey vacation spot with his daughter Ivanka, son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner and the couple’s three children in tow.
The president will be at his golf club in Bedminster, NJ for what is being called a 17-day “working vacation.”
The president, and everyone who works in the West Wing, had to be out by the end of the week so that the 27-year-old heating and cooling system could be replaced.
“The president’s going to continue to work and we all need to be relocated out of the West Wing due to these renovations that should have taken place before,” White House spokeswoman Linsday Walters told the media, according to the Associated Press.
“They either need to be repaired or replaced and it’s not something that can go on while we’re still occupying the West Wing.”
It was a touching moment when the first family landed in Morristown and deplaned, as the president walked down the stairs holding the hand of his six-year-old granddaughter Arabella Kushner as his three-year-old grandson Joseph Kushner followed close behind.

The 35-year-old first daughter shared a photo of her two oldest children boarding Air Force One earlier in the day on Instagram.
The photo showed the two siblings adorably holding each other’s hands and they headed up the stairs and onto the plane.
Ivanka wore a floral dress, oversized sunglasses and cream-colored pumps.
Her daughter wore pink dress with a red headband to match her grandfather’s trademark red tie.
Many on the left attacked the president for taking a vacation, and conveniently left out the fact that he had to leave the West Wing as the renovations are underway.
Trump’s going on vacation for 17 days, or 1.7 Scaramuccis.

Trump is on a 17-day vacation at his NJ golf club. Since taking office he’s already spent 60 days at his properties, nearly every weekend. https://t.co/BCcNdH1tQd

Even former Mexican President Vincente Fox, who has used President Trump to gain fame since the November presidential election, got in on the act.
.@realDonaldTrump leaving on vacation, huh? What for? If you’re not happy with your job, just leave. After all, it was never for you.

Trump is leaving for vacation. Let’s hope it’s like that vacation that Bill O’Reilly went on.

Trump July 19: “We shouldn’t leave town” until health care is complete.

Again, forgetting that he had to leave.
In another end of the world was the president’s Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin.
Here’s how they do it in Russia …
The 64-year-old Russian president was photographed shirtless while on vacation in Siberia this week.

The action shots showed the Russian leader fishing and lounging around catching some rays.

The images hearken back to one of the most famous photos of Putin as he rode shirtless on a horse in 2009 at the same vacation spot.

And social media had a field day with that too.
Coincidence? Trump is on vacation toohttps://t.co/a9xlJ2eXv0

They are on opposite sides of the world, but go ahead, run with that thought. Many other conspiracy theorists did too.
Interesting that Trump goes on vacation at the same time. BFF’s coordinating their schedules is so sweet.

It appears that the Trump Derangement Syndrome is stronger than ever.
Isn’t it suspicious that Trump went on vacation almost the same day as Putin did?
