    Because typically when people hide information it is because they have an agenda.

    Would you have been ok with political delegations being housed at an Obama property based only on his word that he wouldn’t take a profit off of it? Or a Clinton one?

    Because Trump has a history. And it’s far from great.

    Get over it... that's the Trump way, and the US has sold out for some magic beans (unless you are a US farmer who cannot sell his beans)....

    Strange, I posted the constitutional requirement that he receive salary
    I posted the departments that he has donated his salary to

    You posted a quote from him and a meme
    Some serious investigatory skills you have there friend

    He doesn’t work for free.
    In any way, shape or form.

    False, Article II Section 1 of the Constitution requires the president to be paid:
    The President shall, at stated Times, receive for his Services, a Compensation, which shall neither be increased nor diminished during the Period for which he shall have been elected, and he shall not receive within that Period any other Emolument from the United States, or any of them.

    Choosing candidates isn't my job until election day. As of now, any of the Dems in the clown car would be miles better than Trump.

    And that type of research takes literally seconds. I recommend it highly.

    Fair enough. The first part of my question was 'why now'? Why has he walked it back now, when he hasn't done that with anything else? Any thoughts on that?

    Hold the G7 in Camp David which is owned and operated by U.S.TAXPAYERS!!!We pay for it's maintenance and upkeep year round anyway so why not use it as they did in the past for the G8.

    It's not a classy place to hold an important conference with world leaders.. or Trump..

    We should be able to do better without breaking the bank, but make a serious attempt..

    Just BS as usual rolling like diarrhea out of the Donnie Boy WH. He does something profoundly stupid and finally enough bi-partisan voices tell him that this latest idea belongs back inside whoevers ass it was extracted out of. So Donnie backs down.

    Link it.

    Joe Biden pontificates against getting rich in public office

    Pious Joe tweets about himself.

    [​IMG]
    Joe Biden

    ✔@JoeBiden

    Hosting the G7 at Trump’s hotel? A president should never be able to use the office for personal gain.

    5:12 PM

    Turns out President Trump had no plans to make any money on the setup:

    Trump made it clear as he halted the plan, for nothing better than to shut the liars up:

    There's something very rich about Biden's Pecksniffian tweet, given that he's a longtime Democratic pol who very visibly grew rich in public office.

    That's what his tweet reminded everyone of.

    He knows all the games for padding the old bankbook, and the fact that his ne'er-do-well son Hunter, who'd just been booted from the Navy for snorting cocaine after getting an unusual waiver to enter the service after past use, took no-show jobs from both Ukrainian and Chinese entities, making millions in what was a classic disguised bribery setup. In Ukraine alone, Hunter Biden drew at least $60,000-a-month in payouts as a 'ceremonial' board member in what the corruption-plagued Ukrainian company, Burisma, later said was 'protection' against corruption inquiries.

    Now Biden's saying Trump is enriching himself in public office? This is pure projection, projection of the worst sort, given that Trump takes no salary, offered to host the Doral summit free of charge for the benefit of the U.S. government and American taxpayers.

    Biden stands exposed as a rank hypocrite for this one. His pious tweet stood as a reminder to everyone about 'who he is.' One can only hope it draws attention to how he got so very rich himself as a result of his long stretch in public office.

    As for your trade delegations: Your trade deficit only grew by 1.5% this year, vs a 7.1% growth the year before, and you are purchasing 3.9% more from us, that's certainly appreciated, it looks like your trade delegations are doing a great job working with our trade folks.

    It would have required a lot of work, effort and sacrifice on the part of Trump and his people, and it didn't look like it would be appreciated, so why should he bother?

    The press and others complained about Camp David being too cramped, not enough to do, required a long bus ride both ways, so he was excited about giving them a great venue at a great value, and well, you saw what they did with that.

    While they are sitting on the bus going to Camp David and feeling cramped they can reflect on why there weren't able to enjoy this at a much nicer venue.
