No G7 Summit at Donald Trump's Miami Golf Resort
New Delhi : The US President Donald Trump on Saturday said that the next G7 Summit will not be organized at one of his own Florida golf clubs.
"Based on both Media & Democrat Crazed and Irrational Hostility, we will no longer consider Trump National Doral, Miami, as the Host Site for the G-7 in 2020," the president tweeted.
"We will begin the search for another site, including the possibility of Camp David, immediately."
Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney had on Thursday announced that the South Florida would be the best location for the event out of several locations considered for the June 10-12 gathering next year.
According to critics, the move would have violated the foreign and domestic emoluments clauses which are in place to ensure shielding of a US leader from an outside influence.
On Friday, new legislation to block the plan was introduced by Democrats in Congress, who have already opened an impeachment investigation into allegations that the president pressured Ukraine into interfering on his behalf in the 2020 US election.
