Trump abandons idea of hosting G7 summit at his Florida golf resort

Trump abandons idea of hosting G7 summit at his Florida golf resort”

Mulvaney had said the south Florida venue was "the best place" among a dozen United States locations considered for the June 10 to 12 gathering next year.

The next G-7 is scheduled for June 10-12.

'Yeah, but it's his background, ' Mulvaney said, adding, 'he's in the hotel business, or at least he was before he was president'.

On Friday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told CNN that conducting the G7 at one of Trump's properties was "completely out of the question".

In a tweet Saturday, Trump said he thought he was "doing something good for the country by using Trump National Doral, in Miami, for hosting the G-7 summit leaders".

Trump has faced unprecedented GOP opposition to his decision to withdraw US troops from northern Syria, including blunt criticism from the usually loyal Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and a stampede of Republicans supporting a House resolution denouncing his Syrian policy.

'President Trump's decision to award the G-7 Conference to his own property was outrageous, corrupt and a constitutional violation.

Trump said they will begin the search for another site, including the possibility of Camp David.

"But, no, there's no issue here on him profiting from this in any way, shape, or form".

"But, as usual, the Hostile Media & their Democrat Partners went insane!" the president said.

Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney reportedly faced termination before House Democrats launched the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

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. "It is big, grand, on hundreds of acres, next to MIAMI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, has tremendous ballrooms & meeting rooms, and each delegation would have its own 50 to 70 unit building", Trump wrote on Twitter, rehashing arguments made previously. Would set up better than other alternatives, ' he continued. He said if it were legally permissible, he'd offer to host the summit at no cost to the U.S. In his revised statements, Mulvaney has said that the process was slowed not because of a quid pro quo, but because of concerns about corruption in Ukraine and the level of contributions from European nations.

First of all, as I noted on social media the other day, the idea of holding an worldwide summit in Miami in the middle of June is just absurd. Finally, the negative reaction from Democrats and the media surely had nothing to do with it.

"This source tells me much of the president's thinking is being driven by the news coverage he's been watching over the last 24 hours, including Mick Mulvaney's struggle to defend his walk back during a Fox News interview earlier today", reporter Jeremy Diamond told Cabrera.

On the same news conference Thursday, Mulvaney acknowledged a quid pro quo used to be at work when Trump held up US abet to Ukraine in substitute for Ukraine's investigation of Democrats and the 2016 elections. "I think it's the right decision to change and we'll have to find someplace else, and my guess is we'll find someplace else the media won't like for another reason".
