Surprised over Doral flap, Trump thinks he’s still in hospitality business – Mulvaney – Reuters

Trump on Saturday announced on Twitter that he was abandoning the move to host the meeting at Trump National Doral near Miami in June, citing “Crazed and Irrational Hostility” from Democrats and the news media. He said he would look for another site, possibly the Camp David presidential retreat.

“He was honestly surprised at the level of pushback” to the original announcement, White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney told “Fox News Sunday.”

“At the end of the day, he still considers himself to be in the hospitality business, and he saw an opportunity to take the biggest leaders from around the world and he wanted to put on the absolute best show, the best visit that he possibly could and he was very confident of doing that at Doral,” Mulvaney said.

The G7 is a group of leading advanced economies comprising the United States, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and Britain.

“I think it was the right decision to change,” said Mulvaney, who said he had discussed the matter with Trump on Saturday evening. Mulvaney had made the initial announcement that the Trump property would host the annual meeting at a White House news conference on Thursday. Ethics experts and many lawmakers quickly attacked the decision.

The Republican president faces criticism and a number of congressional investigations over his finances and potential conflicts of interest stemming from his real estate business, which he still owns, and an impeachment inquiry into accusations that he pursued political interests in his dealings with Ukraine.

  1. Trump is delusinal, a liar, stupid, uninteligent and many others for after nearing the end of his 4 year Presidential ‘Term of Office’ he still has no idea of how a President should act, the legal responsibilities of a President and many others.

    He is unable or unwilling to accept advice has he still genuinely believes he knows best and that the President of the US is untouchable.

    This stems from his upbringing, where he was always given what he wanted, discounted anyone he came across and could do what he wished to them for he used his inherited wealth to overcome all obstacles in his way.

    But when you are President wealth is not an advantage, but civility, understanding and concern for others and a willingness to be there for all the people of America is. But is Trump any of this, for his lying, bullying, disrespect, etc come to the fore and show those who are willing to see, what he is and always will be.
