President Trump held what he called “part of a Cabinet meeting” at his golf club for a discussion on the military, border security, health care and the economy.
Trump hosted Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin, along with White House chief strategist Steve Bannon and Chief of Staff Reince Priebus.
