Trump golfed over 300 times while in office costing taxpayers at least $148M. He spent 57% of his weekends as POTUS at one of his properties. He skipped the G20 “Pandemic Preparedness” summit to golf & played over 25 times during the pandemic. But…Joe rode a bike.

👇@narendramodi says "India is the only country in the group of G20 countries, which is moving fast towards achieving its climate goals."
