    And, it’s because he has previously been quoted saying that ‘most of the people I know that are successful really don’t take vacations’ – and for famously condemning former President Obama for taking too much holiday (despite enjoying over three times as much already…)

    However, one gets around a two-week break by calling it a ‘working’ holiday. I mean, he did respond to the Charlottesville terror attack, even if his response was completely baffling…

    After a 16-year war between the country and the US, Trump tweeted this weekend that he’d reached a decision on how he would move forward there so now the world will await his first formal address on the matter.
