Donald Trump has shot down reports that he called the White House a ‘dump’ when speaking to guests at one of his own golf clubs.

The President once again took to Twitter to respond to an article posted on that recounted a conversation with some club members at his golf course in Bedminster, New Jersey.

Trump reportedly told the members he visits the property so frequently because “that White House is a real dump”.

However, he categorically denied making the comments, hours after the White House also denied them.

He tweeted: “I love the White House, one of the most beautiful buildings (homes) I have ever seen.

“But Fake News said I called it a dump – TOTALLY UNTRUE.”

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

He is expected to leave on Friday for his first extended holiday from Washington since the inauguration – a 17-day getaway to the Bedminster club.
