The president got his golf courses built on the shores of Lake Mead, a vast lake in Nevada, the Associated Press reports.
Trump spent nearly $200 million on the project, which included the purchase of a lakefront golf course on Lake Mead and the purchase and maintenance of other golf courses on the lakefront.
The president also bought a casino on the water and used the proceeds to build a Trump International Hotel and Tower in Las Vegas, the AP reports.
The AP reports that Trump also used the money to expand the Las Vegas Convention Center, build a golf course and golf course at the same time.
“The money, in my opinion, is a tremendous investment in the future of golf in the United States,” Trump told reporters.
“This is not a place that we want to have golf courses.”
