President Donald Trump was spotted going out for dinner with his family over the weekend at one of his own hotels.

The president was photographed arriving at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C. with First Lady Melania Trump and their son Barron Trump on Sept. 14, according to Daily Mail.

While the president wore his standard dark suit, Melania was seen wearing a knee-length black dress with Christian Louboutin black leather heels. Barron was also in a black suit for the public outing.

The president has reportedly only dined at Trump-branded establishments in D.C. since his inauguration.

It's not clear who else attended the meal with the family, since members of the press were not allowed into the hotel while the Trumps had a two-hour dinner.

Earlier in the day, the president visited the Trump National Golf Club in Virginia, where he played golf with South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham.

On a previous golf outing, Graham tweeted that the president, 71, had played a score of 73 on a 72-par course with windy and wet conditions. The tweet was met with incredulity from some golf experts, who reportedly said the score would be "impossible" given the course's difficulty combined with the weather.

Golf.com writer Michael Bamberger called Graham's account "patently unbelievable," saying: "A score of 84 would seem plausible. Trump is a good golfer. But a 73, from a 71-year-old who plays often for a president but infrequently for a low-handicap golfer? Unlikely, to say the least."

When Bamberger interviewed Graham about the golf outing, the senator stood by his story, Hot Air reports.

"On the front nine, he shot even par," said Graham. "I shot a 41, which is good for me. He hit almost every fairway ... On the back nine, he was one over, two over at the most. He had one birdie on the back, and just hit the ball well. On the front, he made four 10- to 12-footers for par."

In the time since he has been president, Donald Trump has spent a significant portion of his days in office at his own properties, according to an NBC piece tracking his visits to Trump properties.

Of the first 269 days that Donald Trump was in office, 93 of them were spent at Trump properties such as his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida. The president spent 73 of those days at his golf properties.

During the Barack Obama presidency, Donald Trump often criticized Obama for spending too much time on golf trips.

"Can you believe that, with all of the problems and difficulties facing the U.S., President Obama spent the day playing golf?" asked the president in an Oct. 13, 2014 tweet, adding that Obama was "worse than Carter."

As of Oct. 10, Donald Trump has gone to the golf course more often than Obama did at the same point in his presidency; Trump has racked up 29 trips compared to the former president's 22, according to Politifact.
