Did Donald Trump play his first round of golf as president?

Donald Trump's team can not find the light switches to the cabinet room in which they conduct their meetings, and have to speak in the dark and feel their way out of the room, according to a report that sheds interesting detail on life inside the White House.

On Sunday, the New York Times reported that there is turmoil in the White House as not only is the president frustrated with the poll numbers in response to his executive orders but he is also apparently upset that he was not fully briefed on what his orders did.

Cloistered in the White House, he now has little access to his fans and supporters - an important source of feedback and validation - and feels increasingly pinched by the pressures of the job and the constant presence of protests, one of the reasons he was forced to scrap a planned trip to Milwaukee last week.

The New York Times' Mark Landler said in a pool report on Saturday that "at this hour, pool still does not have the names of POTUS' golf partners (if he played golf) or the details of his activities at the golf club".

Under the new plan, the president would be "looped in" earlier on the substance of executive orders, and a new 10-point checklist would be implemented for people to sign off on them. He wrote: "They have gotten it wrong for two years and now are making up stories and sources!"

In an article published February 5, the Times points to the fact that Bannon is still President Trump's "dominant adviser" in spite of the president's anger that "he was not fully briefed on details of the executive order he signed giving his chief strategist a seat on the National Security Council".

"I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it".

It states there will be new checks on the authority of Bannon and policy director Stephen Miller, who has taken heat for the rollout of the travel ban.

Trump's loathing and war of words with the NYT has only escalated since he won the presidency.

The former chairman of ultra-Conservative media group Breitbart News has gradually manoeuvred himself to become Trump's most trusted adviser.
