President Trump said Saturday that he will no longer host the G-7 Summit at his struggling Miami golf resort but blamed the media and Democrats for his about-face rather than concern over an appearance of self-dealing.
Trump made the announcement in a trio of evening tweets, lashing out at his Democratic rivals and at press opposition including from the New York Post to his holding the summit at Trump National Doral.
I thought I was doing something very good for our Country by using Trump National Doral, in Miami, for hosting the G-7 Leaders. 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.
I announced that I would be willing to do it at NO PROFIT or, if legally permissible, at ZERO COST to the USA. But, as usual, the Hostile Media & their Democrat Partners went CRAZY! he added.
In another tweet, he said he will no longer consider Doral for the meeting and added they are searching for another site and considering Camp David.

Trump LOVES to troll the MSM, he THRIVES on their hysterical behavior and boy this really put their panties in a wad!!! NOW he needs to take the money and completely remodel Camp David LOL, LOL, LOL!!!!
I know he is threatening to have it at Camp David again but if you are going to punish, punish hard.
I propose Gary Indiana
Crime is rampant
Hotels are nasty
Everything about the place plain sucks
Just do it in your second term Mr. President!
Hold it in the center of Nancy Pelosi’s poop nation district.
Whoo-hoo, the NY Post wins.
Not that they know, exactly, WHAT it is that they won.
Sleep Ease offers a FREE continental breakfast and a key card accessible sauna that’s open for 2 hours on Tuesday and Friday afternoons.
Camp David sounds good. Would think that it is more secure, too.
Almost convinced he did this to get his base angry. This is infuriating. When he said it was going to be at cost people actually said, yea but it’s free advertising! They want him to go broke, they won’t have it any other way. Meanwhile Obama signs a 100m deal with Netflix. Anger, vengefulness and jealousy is what the resistance represents. Nothing positive at all
Hope he cancels it all together or has it in the most run down place imaginable for the Media to sleep in...maybe keep it climate friendly and carbon neutral (no electronic or clean running water). That’s what they want right?
He ought to relocate it to the Grand Lisboa in Macao. Stanley Ho the owner has 4 wives. Mitt Romney would probably be OK with that.
don’t care where it is, as long as he sticks with this:
18 Oct: Axios: Mulvaney says climate change will not be on agenda for G7 summit
Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney said Thursday that climate change will not be on the agenda at next years G7 summit...
Struggling Miami golf resort? Really? Curious how this fact isnt given any proof in the story.
Trump offered to do this at zero cost. Then he offered to do it for food costs only. But nooooo - can’t have anything happen that might cast favorable light on the South; all summits must remain in the northeast so the power elite can continue to posture as relevant.
loss of testosterone
Charter a Carnival Cruise ship.....
I hope they choose a location that is very inconvenient for the press.
Now it will cost taxpayers at least twice as much to host it. Nice going and a big FU to the democrats and the propaganda press.
He can make Camp David very inconvenient for the press. That would be a nice counter punch.
