Trump decided to not play golf only when advised it was bad optics while Iraq embassy under attack
Because you always have one hour Iraq strategy meetings at your golf courses and return to the “Southern White House” afterwards. And no one, especially Leningrad Lindsey, was wearing golf shoes.
Your aides decided you shouldn't be golfing while a US embassy is under siege, didn't they?

Just had a very good meeting with President @realDonaldTrump and his team regarding the situation in Iraq.
President Trump is determined to protect American personnel and expects our Iraqi partners to step up to the plate. No more Benghazis.

Trump seems to suggest that he went to his golf club for 52 minutes for a "meeting on the Middle East, the Military, and Trade." pic.twitter.com/N6oZlU3aa2

When the embassy was stormed in Benghazi, it was President Obama and his Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's fault.
So, naturally, Republicans will blame this on President Trump and his Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
