Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Washingtontimes.com: “Trump ‘honestly surprised’ by G7 backlash, Mick Mulvaney says”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Despite Mr. Mulvaney’s defiant announcement on Thursday, the president ultimately walked back that choice late Saturday night, blaming “both Media and Democrat Crazed and Irrational Hostility.”

“He was honestly surprised at the level of pushback,” Mr. Mulvaney said on Fox News Sunday. “At the end of the day, he still considers himself to be in the hospitality business.”

Explaining his second comment, Mr. Mulvaney said Mr. Trump wanted to tap into his “background” in the hotel business to “put on a show” when world leaders arrived for the annual meeting.

The decision triggered a massive wave of backlash from lawmakers on Capitol Hill, concerned holding it at a Trump-owned property would violate the emoluments clause, which prohibits the president from receiving any type of compensation from foreign leaders.
