Trump Announces He Won’t Host G7 Summit At Doral Resort

President Donald Trump tweeted Saturday that he will no longer be hosting the next G-7 Summit at his Doral resort in Florida following pushback from “the Hostile Media & their Democrat Partners.”

Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney announced Thursday that the president had chosen his resort, the Trump National Doral, in Miami for the G-7 Summit next year. Trump was called out for the choice because of fears that it would benefit him financially. World leaders would have been staying at the resort at cost, Mulvaney said.

Trump changed course Saturday evening, tweeting that the administration would find a different location after “Media & Democrat Crazed and Irrational Hostility.”

One potential new location for next year’s summit is Camp David, Trump added.

“Therefore, 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. Thank you!”

The president added that he would have been willing to host the event at the resort for “NO PROFIT or, if legally permissible, at ZERO COST to the USA.”

The House was expected to vote next week to condemn Trump’s original plan of hosting the event at the Doral resort, two House leadership sources said according to NBC News.
