White House Angers Opponents by Announcing G-7 Summit Will Be Held at His Resort, Climate Change Not on Agenda
By Erin Coates
Published October 18, 2019 at 7:55am
The Group of Seven 2020 summit will be held at Trump National Doral resort next year, acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney announced Thursday.

The summit will take place from June 10-12 at the resort property in Miami, Florida. The resort is owned by President Donald Trump’s family.

“We thought of the 12 places that we looked at … this was by far and away the best choice,” Mulvaney said.

Possible locations for hosting the summit were also considered across the country in states such as California, Colorado, Hawaii, Michigan, Tennessee and Utah.


Mulvaney made sure to emphasize that Trump would not be profiting from holding the event at the specific location.

“I get the criticisms. So does [Trump],” he said. “But no, there’s no issue here on him profiting from this in any way, shape or form,” he said.

“If you think it’s going to help his brand, that’s great, but I would suggest that he doesn’t need much help promoting his brand,” Mulvaney added.

The acting White House chief of staff also outlined what would and would not be on the agenda at the summit.

“The focus of the event will be global growth and challenges to the global economy, specifically we’re dealing with things like rejuvenating incentives for growth and prosperity, rolling back prosperity killing regulations, ending trade barriers and reopening energy markets,” he said.

“Taking a lot of what we’ve been doing here domestically with such success and trying to encourage the rest of the world to get on board.”

When asked, he specified that “climate change will not be on the agenda.”

During this year’s summit in Biarritz, France, Trump was not present at a session focused on climate, biodiversity and oceans, The Hill reported.

“The President had scheduled meetings and bilaterals with Germany and India, so a senior member of the Administration attended in his stead,” press secretary Stephanie Grisham told reporters at the time.

French President Emanuel Macron added that reporters “shouldn’t read anything into the American president’s absence. … The U.S. are with us on biodiversity and on the Amazon initiative,” according to Reuters.

The then-Group of Eight Summit was last held in the United States in 2012 at Camp David in Maryland.

“All that was great in the past was ridiculed, condemned, combated, suppressed — only to emerge all the more powerfully, all the more triumphantly from the struggle.”
― Nikola Tesla

How much more can Trump throw in the face of the American people? It is like he is screaming for impeachment.

Do you feel the same about any elected official who profits from their office? If so, it would free up alot of seats in Congress, to include those taking charge of this impeachment.

Do you feel satisfied that Biden's relationship with Ukraine is not worth discussing in this context? Or Clinton's with Russia? Or Obama's with ...

Or does your hatred of our President blind you from considering the possibility that those who are most insistent to attack Trump are up to their eyeballs in corruption and are simply trying to keep attention off of themselves?

Which one is our current president? You are saying it is okay for Trump to profit from the G-7 because you believe others are in some ways or the other so he might as well too?

This ^^^, plus no matter what Trump does the democrats (read as "opponents") are going to be pissed at him. as they stay in a constant state of being pissed at him. He could have had it in some farmer's bean field (anyone know of a farmer with a bean field?) and they would be pissed. It just another day of screaming about what Trump is doing wrong because he can do NOTHING they agree with.

.

The emollients clause says the president must be making PROFIT from any such arrangement, but he has proven he is doing the job AT COST !

To be fair..I believe the president has a big ego, and wants to "show off" his resort to other world leaders. Such would be something new for them, being as few of them have ever earned anything by their own efforts, just like most of our recent presidents.

Using plain old horse sense".. If our president were as greedy as the dumacrats are trying to imply..he wouldn't be giving away his $400,000 paycheck every year, now would he ?

His salary is a pitance compared to what he and his family have raked up so far in the presidency.

Not the first time that an official meeting were conducted at a President's personal property. Didn't Bush have Putin and others to his Texas Ranch? At least here, he doesn't have to hire any more staff to host this summit, and cost will be the same as if it were staged anywhere else, less maybe.
