Trump "was preoccupied with carrying out his eminently important presidential duties and was therefore impeded from effectively asserting his rights," his lawyers said.

Candidate Trump on golf:

February 4, 2016
I love golf... but if I were in the White House ... I'd just want to stay in the White House and work my ass off.

March 14, 2016
If you're here at the White House, and you have so much work to do, why do you fly? Why do you leave so much?

August 6, 2016
I'm going to be working for you, I'm not going to have time to be playing golf.

August 25, 2016

Almost entirely at his own properties.

But he donated his salary so it's all okay.
