Donald Trump has offered President Barack Obama free golf for life if he resigns, zinging the president just hours after it was reported that the leader's last-minute request for a tee time over Labor Day weekend was rejected by several courses, including Trump National Golf Club.
Truth Revolt reported
that the real estate mogul took to Twitter to make his offer public. His post garnered more than 13,000 retweets from his nearly 3 million followers in less than a day.

According to a Wednesday report from NBC New York
, Obama was in Westchester County, New York, for Friday night fundraisers on August 29, as well as the Saturday night wedding of MSNBC host Alex Wagner and White House chef Sam Kass.
Elite golf courses including Trump National Golf Club, the Winged Foot, and Willow Ridge were reported to have denied the president's request for a Saturday morning tee time, opting to honor the reservations of their high-paying members instead. Other last-minute requests from high-profile individuals, such as the king of Morocco, were also declined the same weekend, reporters learned.
The president's golf habit has come under fire for its frequency, which many see as inappropriate amidst a growing list of pressing issues both domestic and international. Those criticisms surfaced after Obama announced the beheading of journalist James Foley by Islamic militants, then bee-lined to the golf course.
Trump also congratulated golf legend Arnold Palmer on Wednesday, who was celebrating his 85th birthday.
Trump owns 17 golf courses
from Scotland to Palm Beach.
