Trump abandons plan to host next G7 summit at private golf resort

Bowing to bipartisan criticism, President Donald Trump abandoned his plan to host next year’s G7 summit at one of his sumptuously appointed resorts in Florida at his own expense. In a series of tweets, he said he was going back on the plan because of “crazed and irrational hostility” by Democrats and the media. The summit would therefore take place at “boring” Camp David.

    Trump was due to receive up to 60 million to host G7 at his resort and so; Debka, why did you write that ‘Trump was going to host the G7 at his own cost? LOL!!!

    Backing down was Smart Politics in this Day & Age of Impeachment & Criminal Allegations before a 2020 Election. Camp David Is OK, It Is The Summit That Counts more than Location!

    They hammer Trump everytime he tries to save the government money; he was not charging a penny to the government for The Doral. The only thing that would have cost the government anything was the security, which no matter where they are having the G7 it is necessary. All those who hate trump just jump on anything the President does. They do this and don’t realize the next Democrat President if there is ever ever going to be another Democrat elected President is going to hit just as hard; maybe even harder. Just remember the old saying; what goes around, comes around!

    Sonny, you’re a complete idiot. Trump is a Kleptocrat, thief, conman. The worst the world has ever seen.
