Trump Accuses “Radical Left Democrats” Of Spreading Bedbug Rumors After Trump Resort Sued For Bedbugs

The Hill reports:

President Trump on Tuesday denied there were bedbugs at his Doral golf resort in Miami after he indicated he plans to hold next year’s Group of Seven (G-7) summit there. The president accused “Radical Left Democrats” of spreading a “false and nasty rumor” that the property had a bedbug problem.

Trump’s critics began mocking the idea on social media using the hashtag #TrumpBedBugs, which began trending on Twitter on Monday.

The Doral property settled a lawsuit in 2017 with a former guest who alleged he had been bitten by bedbugs during his stay, The Miami Herald reported. The guest claimed the villa where he stayed had a “severe bed bug infestation.”
