The rest from the president's congressional listening session:

- He said the "man" he's announcing for secretary of labor is a "great person" and a "star."

- Of golf with Japanese Prime Minister Shinz? Abe, POTUS said he "played well." They played with Ernie Els because Trump asked for them to get him someone good to play with since he was playing with the prime minister.

- POTUS on Obama playing golf: "Well, I always said about President Obama, it's great to play golf, but play golf with heads of countries and people like yourself when you're looking for votes. Don't play with your friends that you play with every week. Does that make sense?" The congressional Republicans laughed at that line.
