Following his speech at CPAC, Donald Trump told reporters that President Barack Obama should use golf to engage Republicans, rather than his “local friends.”

The real-estate mogul said he has made billion-dollar deals on the golf course.

“Golf is a huge advantage for the president,” Trump said on Friday. “He should be playing with the speaker and the other people. Now, he did it once, but he should do it all the time.”

Trump took questions from reporters on a wide range of topics, including immigration.

“We educate people from other countries and then we force them to leave because we won’t want to make them a citizen. So, somebody goes to the Wharton school of finance for four years, becomes a great student, really a genius at business or goes to another school, MIT or Harvard, and become a genius, and then we say get out of the country, you can’t come in. How stupid is this? I mean, it’s incredible to me. And then they go and kick our ass because now they’re working for the other side.”

He was also asked for his reaction to the possibility that former New York Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner might run to be New York City mayor.

“The guy is a sick pervert. We need good people,” Trump said. “He’s not going to change.”
