Trump 'called White House a real dump'

US President Donald Trump has told members of his New Jersey golf club that he spends so much time away from Washington because the White House is a "real dump".

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment about the account, which appeared in a lengthy article posted on the website golf.com.

The story on Mr Trump's complicated love for golf also appears in Sports Illustrated magazine.

It recounts a scene in which Mr Trump was chatting with some club members.

Mr Trump told the members he makes such frequent appearances at the property in Bedminster, New Jersey, because: "That White House is a real dump."

He has spent nearly every weekend of his presidency visiting various properties he owns and leases, including Bedminster.
