Wow offering his OWN property to host a bunch of useless cowards and assholes. No one else would do so?


Trump puts forward own Miami golf course for next G7 summit

By AOL news service premium edition

BIARRITZ, France, Aug 26 (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said on Monday he would probably host next year's Group of Seven summit of developed world leaders at one of his own properties - the Trump National Doral golf resort in Miami.

The G7 countries take it in turn to stage the summit, often choosing locations that show off areas of natural beauty.

Trump said the Florida resort was a perfect choice, both due to its size and the fact it was just a five-minute drive from Miami airport.

"They love the location of the hotel, they also like the fact is it right next to the airport for convenience. And it is Miami, Doral, Miami, so it is a great area," he said during this year's summit in the French coastal town of Biarritz.

He said a final decision had yet to be taken, but added: "We haven't had anything that could even come close to competing with it, especially when you look at the location."

Trump has attended three G7 summits, in Italy, Canada and France. On each occasion, the meeting has been held far from any airport that can take his Airforce One plane, meaning he has had to be shuttled in by helicopter or by a smaller plane.

"So many places are so far away, the drive is so long, they need helicopters. This is somewhere you can be at within minutes of landing," he said.

Although he did not like the fact he had to swap planes in France, Trump praised the set-up in Biarritz, at a conference center overlooking the Atlantic.

"We can learn from what they did here, even architecturally, the way the rooms were set up and designed," he said.

He however made clear he would not produce any unexpected guests, as France did by inviting Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif to hold talks on the sidelines of the gathering on Saturday.

"There won't be any surprises," he said.

of course, it's not at all about making huge amounts of money & promoting his properties

after all, he's lost $3-5 billion by being President...

yay for massive corruption

”He however made clear he would not produce any unexpected guests”

Yeah, well. His dear friend, and natural choice to invite – Epstein, died recently, so...

Maybe he can invite Netanyahu instead. If France invites Iran, why can’t the Trump invite Israel?

Trump wisely tweeted:
No bedbugs at Doral. The Radical Left Democrats, upon hearing that the perfectly located (for the next G-7) Doral National MIAMI was under consideration for the next G-7, spread that false and nasty rumor. Not nice!
so now the whole world can be aware of the 'rumor'... (there does appear to be a settled lawsuit about bedbugs, most likely w/ a non-disclosure agreement like w/ his settled fraud lawsuits)

i'm sure pest control will be among all the repair & renovation bills he soaks the U.S. tax payer for if he gets his way on the G7 location

so what is the excuse for this one? president plans to enrich himself with USG money, isn't there a clause in the constitution against such corruption? Donald did not bother with blind trust and things like that, he is the benefitiary, never mind that Udai and Qusai are officially running the hotel.

well, he said these words all in a row:

"From my standpoint, I’m not going to make any money. In my opinion I’m not going to make any money. I don’t want to make money. I don't care about making money."

...a man you can trust

he also claimed 12 sites were looked at by 'his people', and claimed they said this one was the best... although the things he says mean nothing as noted repeatedly

but yes this violates the emoluments clause (not that he's been concerned about that ever)... plus presumably this violates other rules on how a place is selected
