    LOL, poor desperate libs, what will they make up next:

    #1 hotel in Doral, almost 100% positive reviews, rooms start at $200/night
    https://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_R...Trump_National_Doral_Miami-Doral_Florida.html

    Like I said, Trump was willing to provide it at cost, now he's back to making nice profit off of it. Well done libs LOL :D

    Hilarious. I live in the area. Being the best hotel in Doral is like being the best hotel in Detroit. Now compare it to the convention hotels on the the Beach - not an industrial area of Miami.

    Oh, this changes everything, we will of course take the opinion of an anonymous Trump hater over 3,000 five star reviews on tripadvisor alone left by people who paid upward of $200 a night and believe that they got excellent value for their money and that their stay at Trump National Doral Miami was amazing.

    Well done, really, instead of Trump losing money hosting the summit at cost, he'll continue profiting from his property Bwahaha :D lest we forget that the summit participants will pay twice for much more mediocre accommodations.

    Are the other resorts willing to do it for their cost?

    I personally don't think Camp David is super appropriate for a summit at this level either.... We hike near there and it's close to nothing.... The costs will be in getting other people back and forth from somewhere else.

    I know it's been done before, but I gotta think there's better out there.

    I've heard Sea Island Georgia would be perfect.... Whatever, they need to release the process... I know they like to stonewall everything, but c'mon...

    i thought it was an unforced error because right now he needs to lay relatively low and allow Republicans to work without creating more work for them. Going back on it is better than going through with it but thats not a great look either.

    yes but now the foot stomping over this issue is over and the Republicans in the senate arent going to have to field endless questions where msm foot stomps. Yes msm foot stomp about everything anyway but why just give them stuff to stomp about? Trump needs to do all he can to keep Republican Senators happy because theyre his firewall from Democrats and fielding questions about Trump Doral g7 summit probably wouldnt make them happy.

    Absolutely... I do still find a lot of irony in the fact that Trump wanted to give the summit guests the best accommodations and service possible at the cheapest price possible, in fact at the expense of his own profit. Now he is free to continue profiting from his property and the guests will pay more for less. Oh well, as far as the swamp is concerned, mission accomplished.

    Any thoughts on why he really walked back on Doral? I know he says it's because of the Dems and the MSM - but he faces backlash like that daily, without walking things back. So why now? Do you think he is starting to recognize the mess into which he's dropped himself and the legal ramifications?

    No. He was going to provide it at cost, actually he was trying to arrange to provide at ZERO cost to the US taxpayer. It's a world class venue, right next to an international airport, with each delegation able to have a 55-60 unit building to themselves, plus the enjoyment of magnificent meeting rooms, ballrooms, restaurants and views.

    The Fake News Reporters complained about the last one at Camp David, said it was too cramped that the one hour each way bus ride was inconvenient, and I think Trump who was willing to go to a lot of effort and cost to give them a better venue, said "screw it" when they started pretending that it would be an impeachable offense.

    So, back to the buses and the cramped quarters at Camp David!

    They can use the one hour bus rides each way for contemplation on how their own behavior keeps them from having nicer things.

    That's exactly right!

    President Trump abruptly scrapped plans to hold next year’s G-7 gathering of world leaders at the Trump National Doral in Miami. “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,” he announced on Twitter late Saturday. “We will begin the search for another site, including the possibility of Camp David, immediately.” Trump explained:

    I thought I was doing something very good for our Country by using Trump National Doral, in Miami, for hosting the G-7 Leaders. It is big, grand, on hundreds of acres, next to MIAMI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, has tremendous ballrooms & meeting rooms, and each delegation would have its own 50 to 70 unit building. Would set up better than other alternatives. I announced that I would be willing to do it at NO PROFIT or, if legally permissible, at ZERO COST to the USA. But, as usual, the Hostile Media & their Democrat Partners went CRAZY!​

    Analysis: True.

    DORAL, THERE WE GO

    Obviously, this is the CORRECT Decision.

    Although a Complete IDIOT (Like Trump) needed to be talked into it (by someone else).

    Obviously, the whole idea of Hosting G-7 at Doral was COMPLETELY MORONIC (just like 99% of the things that come from Trump's MENTALLY-DISEASED "Brain").

    At least. the Foreign Leaders won't have to worry about BEDBUGS.:smh:

    probably somebody told him that doing so would cause more trouble from msm that his Supporters in congress would have to deal with.

    If there actually were other bids
    Why would other resorts offer to do it for cost? Getting conventions etc is their business so they aren't going to offer their facilities at cost so the real question is.....why would Trump, genius businessman, offer his property at cost?

    I seriously doubt it was ever a legitimate offer. A momentary distraction from other issues such as his blunders in Syria and Ukraine. And, in this way, he gets to show his supporters how magnanimous he is...by making the "no Doral" decision, rather than waiting for the inevitable Court prohibition. IOW, just more BS.

    I learned that, like most haters, you only repeat part of what he says.
