President Donald Trump reportedly decided to reverse plans to hold the Group of Seven summit at his Florida golf resort after Republicans told him they would not be able to support his decision.
GOP lawmakers told Trump they would not be able to defend his plan to host the gathering of global leaders at his own property in Doral, especially after having to face questions regarding his ties with Ukraine and his decision to pull U.S. troops from Syria, The Wall Street Journal and the New York Times reported Sunday.
The White House did not immediately respond to HuffPost’s request for comment. The president on Sunday afternoon suggested he decided not to hold G-7 at Doral because of Democrats and the news media.
So interesting that, when I announced Trump National Doral in Miami would be used for the hosting of the G-7, and then rescinded due to Do Nothing Democrat/Fake News Anger, very few in Media mentioned that NO PROFITS would be taken, or would be given FREE, if legally permissible!
On Thursday, White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney told reporters that Trump planned to host next year’s G-7 summit at the Trump National Doral, dismissing concerns that the president would personally profit by holding a political event at the resort near Miami. The announcement brought bipartisan backlash from people who felt the move is inappropriate, corrupt and probably illegal.
