Poll: Most think President Trump should not be on a 17-day working vacation

President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump are enjoying a 17-day "working vacation" at Trump National Golf Club -- but not everyone is pleased with their most recent getaway.

The president, who has been criticized in the past for his frequent excursions to his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, is now facing opposition after taking an extended vacation at his Bedminster, N.J. property, according to a new AOL News survey.

The poll finds 53 percent think the president should not be taking a "working vacation." Meanwhile, 43 percent of those surveyed said Trump should be taking a vacation. Another four percent of respondents said they weren't sure.

The Trumps arrived at his Bedminster, New Jersey property on Saturday. Aides have said the president plans on meeting with top lawmakers and senior advisers to tackle issues like health care and tax reform, however, the White House has not released a daily schedule for the president and has not mentioned whether he plans to play golf during his stay.

However, the president has been adamant that this trip "is not a vacation."

Many detractors have pointed to Trump's own words, pointing to old tweets in which he criticized his predecessor, Barack Obama, for playing golf and leaving Washington D.C. with his family.

Trump also criticized Obama for playing golf, tweeting in 2014, "Can you believe that, with all of the problems and difficulties facing the U.S., President Obama spent the day playing golf."

The White House is undergoing major renovations while the president and first lady are away. Photos surfaced online just hours after their departure, showing West Wing rooms empty.
