The president often brags about not taking a paycheck, but his golf hobby has now cost taxpayers $133.8 million.

President Donald Trump returned to Mar-a-Lago†on Friday evening for the 29th golf-related trip of his presidency to his for-profit Palm Beach, Florida, resort, raising his total taxpayer golf tab to $133.8 million.

That figure translates to 334 years of the presidential salary that Trump and his supporters frequently boast he is not taking.

During Barack Obama's presidency, Trump frequently claimed he was playing golf too much and at too great an expense to taxpayers.

"I play golf to relax. My company is in great shape. @BarackObama plays golf to escape work while America goes down the drain," Trump tweeted†in December 2011.

"Can you believe that, with all of the problems and difficulties facing the U.S., President Obama spent the day playing golf. Worse than Carter," he wrote three years later.

As he began his own run for the White House, candidate Trump repeatedly promised that golf would never make it onto a President Trump's schedule. "I love golf, but if I were in the White House, I don't think I'd ever see Turnberry again. I don't think I'd ever see Doral again," he told a rally audience in February 2016, referring to his courses in Scotland and Miami. "I don't ever think I'd see anything. I just want to stay in the White House and work my ass off."
