Obama Volunteers At A Food Bank For Thanksgiving While Trump Golfs At His Luxury Florida Country Club

Former President Barack Obama made a surprise visit to a Chicago food bank on Tuesday, lending a helping hand to volunteers tasked with preparing Thanksgiving food for people in need.

The Greater Chicago Food Depository tweeted a video of the former president’s visit where he threw on a pair of latex gloves and aided other volunteers in bagging potatoes ahead of Thursday’s holiday.

“We believe no one should go hungry, especially this time of year, and that’s why we’re working to address the root causes of hunger in Chicago and Cook County,” the food bank wrote on social media.

At the same time, Donald Trump was aboard Air Force with his wife, Melania, and youngest son, Barron, en route for West Palm Beach, Florida. Trump will spend his Thanksgiving holiday at his exclusive Mar-a-Lago estate club, dubbed the “Winter White House,” like he has each year since he was elected in November 2016.

Wednesday morning, Trump played golf played with former professional golfer Jack Nicklaus.

Nicklaus voted for Trump in the 2016 presidential election, saying that the real estate mogul would shake up U.S. politics in an interview with CBS News.

“I like what Donald has done. he’s turning America upside down, he’s awakening the country,” Nicklaus said at the time.

“Is he as smooth and as politically correct as he should be? Probably not, but he’ll learn. He’s not stupid. He didn’t get where he was being dumb.”
