( CNN) President Donald Trump protected himself Saturday against criticisms of his stay at his golf course in Bedminster, New Jersey, this weekend, saying it is saving the two countries money.

“The reason I am staying in Bedminster, N.J ., a beautiful community, is that staying in NYC is much more expensive and disruptive, ” the President tweeted.

Trump returned to Manhattan Thursday night for the first time in his presidency to meet with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, who joined the President to celebrate the 75 th Anniversary of the Battle of the Coral Sea aboard the USS Intrepid, the aircraft carrier-turned-museum parked along Manhattan’s West Side.
