  • The claims were published in a lengthy article by Golf Magazine on Tuesday
  • Trump reportedly told the members he makes such frequent appearances at the property in Bedminster because: 'That White House is a real dump'

President Donald Trump told members of his New Jersey golf club that he spends so much time away from Washington DC because the White House is a 'real dump', a report has claimed.

Trump is said to have made the comments to some of his patrons in an effort to explain his frequent visits to his golf club at Bedminster since becoming president, Golf Magazine reports.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Tuesday about the account. 

The story recounts a scene in which Trump was chatting with some club members before a recent round of golf. 

Trump told the members he makes such frequent appearances at the property in Bedminster because: 'That White House is a real dump.'

Trump reportedly told members of his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey (pictured arriving there on July 16) that he spends so much time away from Washington because the White House is a real dump

It is not clear if Trump made the comment in jest.

His critics, including former first daughter Chelsea Clinton, immediately lashed out at Trump assuming he was having a dig at the White House.

'Thank you to all the White House ushers, butlers, maids, chefs, florists, gardeners, plumbers, engineers & curators for all you do every day,' Chelsea tweeted shortly after the comments surfaced.

The lengthy story on Trump's complicated love for golf is also set to appear in Sports Illustrated magazine's August 7 edition. 

Trump has spent nearly every weekend of his presidency visiting various properties he owns and leases, including Bedminster and Mar-a-Lago at Palm Beach in Florida. 

The report said that Trump feels 'unguarded among the people who pay for their proximity to him'.

The Secret Service has reportedly set up a secure perimeter around Trump's own private cottage at Bedminster for when he visits.

Trump had praised members during a cocktail party in November - less than two weeks after winning the election - before inviting them to 'drop in' on his interviews with potential cabinet members.

'We're doing a lot of interviews tomorrow - generals, dictators, we have everything,' he was caught saying to the crowd in audio that was published by Politico earlier this year.

THE WHITE HOUSE'S FACILITIES:  

The White House has 132 rooms including 16 family-guest rooms.

It also boasts a main kitchen, diet kitchen and family kitchen. The White House's five full-time chefs can cater for anything the First Family needs.

There's also a whopping 35 bathrooms within the White House.

The President's home spans six floors and covers 55,000 square feet.

There's also a tennis court, a single-lane bowling alley, a movie theater, jogging track, swimming pool and putting green.

'You may wanna come around. It'll be fun. We're really working tomorrow. We have meetings every 15, 20 minutes with different people that will form our government.' 

Trump has been criticized for his frequent trips to his own properties since taking office given he blasted Barack Obama for playing rounds of golf when he was president. 

According to NBC's tracker, Trump has spent 58 of his 193 days in office away from the White House at his own properties. 

Forty-three of those days have been at his golf properties in Virginia, Florida and New Jersey.
