Trump to host next year

U.S. President Donald Trump will host next year’s Group of Seven economic summit of developed world leaders at one of his own properties, the Trump National Doral golf resort near Miami, a White House official said on Thursday, AzVision.az reports citing Reuters.

White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney said Trump would not profit from use of the property and defended the decision, which comes as the president faces ongoing criticism and congressional investigations over his finances and potential conflicts-of-interest.

Mulvaney told reporters the summit would take place at Doral on June 10-12, 2020, and that the administration selected Trump’s resort after initially looking at about 12 potential locations in various other U.S. states.
