Mulvaney: Next G7 Meeting Will Be At Trump’s Resort

NPR reports:

Next year’s G-7 gathering of the leaders of the world’s biggest economies will take place at a President Trump’s Doral golf resort outside of Miami, acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney announced on Thursday. “We used a lot of the same criteria used by past administrations,” Mulvaney said. He later said it was almost as though the resort had been purpose-built for the event.

The Trump administration’s decision to host the high-profile international summit at Doral is sure to stoke the ongoing controversy about Trump’s decision to maintain his ownership of his businesses while also serving as president. Trump made his interest in holding the summit at Doral known in August, while attending this year’s gathering in France. “We haven’t found anything that could even come close to competing with it,” Trump said.
