Trump now says his Doral Miami resort will not host G-7 summit after two days of strong criticism
President Donald Trump on Saturday night bowed after two days of strong criticism and dramatically reversed his decision to have his Miami golf resort host next year’s G-7 summit, CNBC reports.
“Based on both Media & Democrat Crazed and Irrational Hostility, we will no longer consider Trump National Doral Miami as the Host Site for the G-7 in 2020,” Trump tweeted.
“We will begin the search for another site, including the possibility of Camp David, immediately,” he added.
Democrats had blasted Trump in recent days after acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney on Thursday revealed that the Doral would be the site of the meeting of an elite group of world leaders, claiming it was the best possible site out of about a dozen considered.
Those Democrats said it would be highly inappropriate, and potentially a violation of the Constitution, for Trump’s business to profit from foreign governments whose emissaries would be staying, eating and drinking at the Doral.
