ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: President Donald Trump, First Lady Melania, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and First Lady Akie pose for photographs prior to their dinner at Mar-a-Lago, Florida on Saturday (February 11). Trump and Abe hit the links on Saturday, as the two leaders looked to forge a bond over a round of golf diplomacy. South African four-time majors champion Ernie Els joined Trump and Abe for a round at Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter, Florida, Trump said in a tweet Saturday evening. Reporters were not allowed on the course to watch the president and prime minister while they golfed. After four hours at the club, Trump tweeted a picture of himself and Abe on the golf course. "Having a great time hosting Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in the United States," Trump said in the tweet. The 47-year-old Els, whose primary residence is in south Florida, followed in the footsteps of American former world number one Tiger Woods, who played golf with Trump in December.
