Trump scraps plan to host G-7 at his Florida golf resort

Trump Doral Trump Resort Will No Longer Host G7 Summit
Bennie Garza | 21 October, 2019, 06:44

The White House immediately restarted the selection process for a new site, with Camp David among the locations, Trump said.

"I thought I was doing something very good for our Country by using Trump National Doral, in Miami, for hosting the G-7 Leaders. Would set up better than other alternatives", Trump wrote. "But, as usual, the Hostile Media & their Democrat Partners went insane!" he continued. The fact that he was forced, most likely reluctantly, to change his mind just demonstrates how bad the initial decision was.

Trump National Doral Golf Course near Miami opened in 1962 and consists of 800 acres. I was attending the the Pritikn Health Resort & Spa located on the property. That did nothing to allay concerns that the president has used his office to enrich his business interests.

Speaking on "Fox News Sunday" with Chris Wallace, Mulvaney flatly denied what he had previously said during a televised news conference: that defense funding was frozen in part over the demand that Ukraine launch an investigation that could politically benefit Trump.

"At the end of the day, he still considers himself to be in the hospitality business, and he saw an opportunity to take the biggest leaders from around the world and he wanted to put on the absolute best show, the best visit that he possibly could and he was very confident of doing that at Doral", Mulvaney said. Mulvaney said that Trump would not profit from the event.

Plans to hold the June 2020 meeting between the USA and some of its most powerful allies at the luxury resort were announced on October 17 by Trump's acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney.

The summit was held at the presidential retreat of Camp David in Maryland, some 60 miles from Washington, in 2012, when it was hosted by then-President Barack Obama. Mulvaney said the White House reached that determination after visiting 10 sites across the country.

Some of Donald Trump's closest associates are assembling a roster of possible replacements if the president decides to replace Mick Mulvaney, his acting chief of staff, said three people close to the situation.

The announcement has been roundly criticized by both Democrats and Republicans.

The White House stressed that Mr. Trump would not stand to profit personally from the event - Mr. Mulvaney said it could be held "at cost", meaning that Mr. Trump would not make money - but the Doral would still have received a large amount of free publicity simply by hosting the summit.

Castro echoed Warren's sentiments of questioning Trump, with the former Housing and Development Secretary adding on Twitter, 'Trying to be a complete crook of a politician didn't quite work out for him this time, but I'm sure he's not done trying.

If the Doral decision hadn't been made when it was, "we wouldn't have had the press conference on Thursday regarding - regarding everything else", Mulvaney said on Fox.

That notion struck some Trump allies as hollow, because the uproar was resounding in August when the president first floated the idea of choosing Doral.

Mulvaney told "Fox News Sunday" it was "just absurd" to think that the episode, as well as Republican resistance to Trump's plan to pull US troops from Syria, made it more likely the Republican-led Senate would vote to convict Trump on impeachment charges if they are filed by the Democratic-led House.
