Grifter President Decides Hosting G-7 at His Own Resort is Too Blatant a Grift, Even for Him – Live


 On Saturday night, just two days after Acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney announced the Trump administration’s intent to host the upcoming G-7 summit at Trump’s resort in Miami, President Donald Trump announced on Twitter that the government would find another location to host the summit, possibly Camp David  Trump, naturally, blamed his abrupt about-face on the media and Democrats. “I thought I was doing something very good for our Country by using Trump National Doral, in Miami, for hosting the G-7 Leaders,” Trump wrote, adding, “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!”    In announcing the plans to host the summit at Doral, Mulvaney said that the event would be held “at cost,” meaning that the Trump property would not profit but only be reimbursed But as Washington Post reporter David Fahrenthold pointed out on Twitter, Trump has charged rather exorbitant prices for other government events held at his properties    In one example Fahrenthold cited from ProPublica, when White House staffers racked up an $838 bar tab for 54 drinks by pouring themselves premium liquor at a Mar-a-Lago bar, the Trump-owned property charged a 20 percent service fee, bringing the bill to just north of $1000, even though the Secret Service stopped the bartender from entering the room Meaning, they charged a service fee when there was no server. Also at Mar-a-Lago, Trump’s property charged the government the maximum allowable rate for a room, $546 per night   Related Mick Mulvaney’s Appearance on Fox News Sunday Was Not to Be Believed, Literally GOP Congressman Open to Impeachment on Friday, Retires on Saturday Related Charles Manson: How Cult Leader’s Twisted Beatles Obsession Inspired Family Murders 10 Things You Didn’t Know About the Beatles’ Music  In yet another egregious example, Trump’s property in Doonbeg, Ireland, charged the Irish government €14,000 (approximately $15,600) for snacks provided to the Irish police force who were required to be at the resort to protect the president during one of his visits By contrast, another retailer who provided snack bags to the Irish police charged only €5 per bag  And, as Fahrenthold told Chuck Todd on MSNBC, Trump’s Doral property is in “steep decline,” losing 70 percent of its profitability in the past two years So hosting an event like the G-7 would bolster both its bottom line and give it some much-needed publicity, especially after the World Golf Championship PGA event, which was held annually at Doral, moved locations because of the controversial president  But, at least in this one grift, Trump seems to have been thwarted.

    This is just a stunt to get free advertisement for his property, he never intended to hold G-7 at Doral! He's a conman right in our face and nobody seems to notice! SMDH
