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.

Abraham Lincoln said, “No man has a good enough memory to be a successful liar.” That certainly applies to Trump. He either doesn’t remember calling Meghan Markle nasty or he’s lying about it and expects us to believe his reality du jour. Unfortunately, this story is hitting the press this week, as Trump gathers his spawn and their spouses for an official state visit to the UK. Great preamble to what is already set up to be a ludicrous, if not outright disastrous, episode in diplomatic relations between the UK and the United States.

For two straight days, lawyers for a reporter Trump had sued asked the businessman question after question on the same theme: Trump’s honesty.

This person, Tony Blair is not fit to be on this planet, he should be brought to justice and serve a custodial sentence. For even now with the Chilcot report against him, he still feels justified in the actions he took and as stated he would do the same again.
That smile needs to be wiped off his face for ever.
From the first time I saw him in his initial election I could not bring myself to trust someone who smiles like he does, so smarmy, he is a despicable individual and always was.
