Skip to comments.Trump to host G7 at his own Florida resort property
Posted on 10/17/2019 10:06:49 AM PDT by McGruff
White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney announced during a White House press briefing that the 2020 G7 summit will be held at Trump National in Doral, Florida, from June 10-12.
"We used the same set of criteria that previous administrations have used," Mulvaney said.
He said Doral was "far and away the best physical facility for this meeting."
President Donald Trump is sure to receive criticism and will face questions about whether he stands to profit financially from the large summit. Trump has received such criticism in the past for hosting foreign leaders, including China's President Xi Jinping, at his Mar-a-Lago golf club in Florida.

“All other reportage must wait at the gates.”
I think you hit on it. Outside the buildings of Doral it is very noisy being under the flight path of Miami’s huge airport. It will be just like Trump’s press briefings outside the White House with his helicopter revving up. Another plus would be that when the mucky-mucks are playing golf and discussing whatever they have to discuss, audio surveillance gadgets will be useless.
I asked how it was going to cost less.
CNN kvetches. Theyre CNN! I expected nothing less.
Camp David has enough room? I thought it just gas a few rooms. I would imagine G7 needs hundreds of rooms for principals, aides, press, security and large kitchen staff etc.
“Or he could charge a rate that ONLY covers his costs so that he makes no profit.”
That is EXACTLY what Mulvaney said at the presser. It will be at cost - no profit - and will be 50% less than the other locations they looked at. Plus it’s a better setup than any other location.
It doesn’t, that’s why no one like that location for the G8 that was held there.
I spent a day at Doral with my wife. We were visiting an old friend in town for some business.
They have a group of waterfalls used as jacuzzi’s that were incredible.
Maybe about a eight foot fall of a wall of water.
Get in under what ever part of your body you want and Oh My.
Heated to perfection, with waiter staff to bring you refreshments.
I’ve never been clear on the difference between grift and graft. Which one is this?
Hilarious. That’ll cause demonrat heads to spin.
Cost 50% less then if held elsewhere
Obama hosted the last G-8 Summit held in the U.S. at Camp David in 2012. Obviously there's enough room for the necessary people.
Assertion based on what, exactly.
Mulveny announced it at press conference.
Gee, and that only happens on days that end in "y"...what to do?
Idiot Cavuto is aghast ”this is the first time anything like this has happened
WELL, GET USED TO IT. IT’S THE FIRST TIME WE HAD A COOL PRESIDENT WHO SURROUNDED HIMSELF WITH BEAUTIFUL THINGS AND HE IS GENEROUS ENOUGH TO WANT TO SHARE IT.
WTH IS WRONG WITH THAT?????
Yes. I thought he was very professional doing the presser.
Solution: The attendees must stay at the nearby Motel 6 and eat all their meals at Denny's or KFC to stop President Trump from this egregious behavior so as not to further enrage the Democrat Party/Left.
They just recently pulled that crap when some air force flight crews stayed in Scotland or Ireland and he saved the air force about $100 bucks per person per night compared to out in town to put them up at his golf course there.
Your not going to sway any voters, Trump supporters or Trump haters, over this.
