The Latest: Trump ditches press pool to play golf

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — The Latest on President-elect Donald Trump (all times EST):

4:30 p.m.

President-elect Donald Trump has returned to his private club in Florida, after once again ditching his press pool and traveling to another of his clubs to play golf.

Both as a candidate and during the transition, Trump has often scoffed at tradition, such as allowing a group of reporters to follow him at all times to ensure the public knows where he is.

A member of Trump's golf club in Jupiter, Florida, posted a photo on Twitter of Trump on the greens Saturday morning and said about 25 U.S. Secret Service agents accompanied the president-elect. Reporters had not been advised of the trip.

Transition aide Stephanie Grisham confirmed that Trump had made a "last-minute trip" to the golf club, which is about a half-hour drive away from his Mar-a-Largo estate.
