President Donald Trump canceled what appeared to be a trip to the golf course at the last second Monday because he wanted to work on trade issues, the White House said.

According to the pool report, Trump emerged from the executive mansion at 10:40 a.m. ET wearing dark-colored pants, a red polo shirt, and a white hat. There was a motorcade of vehicles lined up, including a Virginia State Trooper. It seemed Trump was heading to his golf course in Northern Virginia for a round.

After getting into his car, he exited a few minutes later and went back into the White House. Soon after, the lid was called on the White House pool — which meant there would be no more news for the day.

Press secretary Sarah Sanders commented later, saying Trump decided to stay back "at the White House to make calls specifically on trade and other international issues. Will keep you posted if there are other updates."

Trump and his team have been negotiating with Canada to hammer out a trade deal as Trump moves to either scrap NAFTA, put together an improved version of it, or simply strike bilateral agreements between the U.S. and Mexico and the U.S. and Canada.
