Longtime sportswriter Rick Reilly claimed in a new book that President Donald Trump cheats at golf as often as possible.


In his latest book, "Commander In Cheat: How Golf Explains Trump," Reilly detailed how Trump goes to absurd lengths to guarantee he wins each match.

“He said when he buys a new course, he plays the first round by himself and calls that the club championship.”

In a recent interview with CNN, Reilly said that the president "cheats like a mafia accountant" and that "he cheats crazy."

"He cheats whether you're watching or not. He cheats whether you like it or not," the sportswriter added.

Reilly also appeared on “Morning Joe,” where he said he'd figured out how the president won the 18 club championships.

“He said when he buys a new course, he plays the first round by himself and calls that the club championship,” Reilly explained

“So I started calling around, people said, ’Yeah, one day he was at Trump Philly, and we played the club championship at Trump Bedminster, and he called and said, ‘Who won the championship?’ They said ‘Joe Shmoe’ shot 76, Trump goes, ‘I shot 73 up here at Trump Philly, make me the champion.’”

The president hasn't commented on Reilly's book so far. But according to the sportswriter, he's prepared if Trump goes on a Twitter tirade about the book.

Recently, journalist Vicky Ward also released a book called "Kushner, Inc.," which describes Trump's real relationship with his 37-year-old daughter Ivanka Trump.

In the book, Ward claims that Ivanka is the president's "greatest weakness."

“Multiple people noticed that [Ivanka would] regularly wander into the Oval Office, often with a child in tow, and talk to Trump in a singsong voice,” she writes. “He’d call her ‘baby’ or pat her on the bottom.”

The journalist continues: “[Trump] sometimes stopped what he was doing to ogle [Ivanka] when she left the room. ‘Doesn’t she look great?’ he would say to others in the room.”

The book also claims that Ivanka and Jared, who tied the knot in 2005, are power-hungry and deceptive.
