Donald Trump is currently on a 17-day "working" vacation at his golf resort in Bedminster, New Jersey. But even though it looks like a vacation and sounds like a vacation, don't you dare call it a vacation! Or, confuse it with the vacations he typically takes every weekend to stay at the Trump National Golf Club in Mar a Lago, Florida. 

On Saturday, a video surfaced of Trump greeting a couple wedding guests in a red "Make America Great Again" hat and donning golf attire before posing for a selfie with a supporter.
