Spicer: no collusion between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation

WASHINGTON ― President Donald Trump will not be apologizing to Barack Obama or backing away from his claim that the former president wiretapped Trump Tower, even though basically everyone who would be in a position to know what happened has publicly rebuked his theory. "Obama's director of national intelligence said so and we take them at their word", said Spicer.

"How you use the game of golf is something that he's talked about", he added.

The reporter followed up by asking why the details of "productive meetings" on the golf course are not being shared with the media.

The White House did not disclose whether Trump played golf over the weekend, but a photo posted on Twitter by Newsmax chief executive Christopher Ruddy, a friend of the president, showed Trump wearing a golfing glove and posing with two others at the club. "And so to start to look at some individual who was there for a short period of time, or separately individuals who really didn't play a role in the campaign and suggest those are the basis for anything, is a bit ridiculous". "One is, you saw him utilize this as an opportunity with [Japanese] Prime Minister [Shinzo] Abe to help foster deeper relationship.in Asia. and have a growing relationship that is going to help US interests".

Trump's preferred course by far is the one closest to his Florida home: Trump International Golf Club.

IBM and Red Hat aim to boost hybrid cloud computing, OpenStack usage
With this aim, IBM said NetBackup 8.0 will be certified to run on IBM Cloud for further data protection of cloud-based workloads. The agreement also calls for joint go-to-market and support initiatives from both companies.

Trump also visited his course in Sterling, Virginia, on March 11 for a meeting.

Trump has played golf at least 10 times since becoming president in late January, despite the fact that he teed off several times at his immediate predecessor Obama for indulging that very same hobby while in office.

Trump made critiquing Obama for golfing a part of his 2016 message.

Both Comey and Rogers said they stood by a January 6 report by the USA intelligence community that said Russian President Vladimir Putin had approved the meddling in an effort to hurt Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and to help Trump. He then said that, "there is a fine line between people who want to be part of something that they never had an official role in and people who actually played a role in either the campaign or the transition". We don't have time for this.

Trump's aides have not done so.
