Here Are the Curious Things Trump and Putin Are Doing on Vacation (Not Together)

One head of state, however, characterizes his getaway as "not a vacation."

After Donald Trump reportedly made comments revealing his opinion that the White House is a "dump" as the reason for his frequent visits to his own golf clubs, he left hot and humid Washington, D.C. for a 17-day vacation to his Bedminster, New Jersey club.

He tweeted that his trip is "not a vacation," given he is working while on the road. (He was an outspoken critic of what he called too-frequent vacations by then-president Barack Obama.)

However, he has been photographed golfing, and riding around in a gold cart while on his trip.

While at the club, Trump also crashed a wedding, approaching shocked and amazed guests who were golfing as part of the main event's weekend festivities.

It's far from the first time Trump has crashed weddings held on his properties; he's done it before in New Jersey, and also at Mar-a-Lago, to much social-media attention and publicity for the venues.

While Trump is in New Jersey, the White House is getting an overhaul. The sprucing-up project includes HVAC upgrades, fresh paint, new carpeting, and curtains.

Meanwhile, in another corner of the globe, Vladamir Putin of Russia is also on vacation — in Siberia.

Unlike the POTUS, Putin appears eager to announce his vacation as just that, flexing his literal and political muscles for a series of mostly shirtless photos released by Russian state TV.

The state-run media pointed out the “the physical fitness of the president," as demonstrated by the photos.

In the images, Putin is seen hiking, fishing, and scuba diving in a lake.
