Because you believe he won't charge anything to the United States or to the other countries to use Doral?

When Jimmy Carter was president Republicans went crazy over any conflicts with his peanut farm. How times have changed and how ethical standards have all but disappeared under Trump.

Trump uses the treasury as his private piggy bank. How many tens and tens of millions of dollars has been paid by the US taxpayer to Trump for his vacations at his resorts.

This scheme of Trump's for the G-7 to stay at Trump's Doral Country Club is nothing more than a money making scam to buttress a sinking enterprise.

Taking money from US taxpayers is not enough for Trump. He has to now take money from the taxpayers of other nations.

This type of arrangement used to be illegal. Under Trump corruption has become the norm.

I guess some of you really disliked it when Obama took those Hawaii family vacations then. They only cost 5 million each. He took 8 of them. And then there was the Martha's Vineyard trips.....disgusting huh?

Apples and footballs. Were the SS, not to mention foreign government officials, staying at hotels/resorts owned by the Obamas during any of those trips?









Shall we compare travel costs between the Trumps and the Obamas now? That's not going to look good for the current administration, either.

Have you ever been to Doral?

It is a boring, industrial area with a fairly crappy mall, and it is a good idea to know Spanish, as the majority of the population is Venezuelan. And it is close to the airport all right--you can hear the planes coming in overhead.

Miami has some truly beautiful areas with very nice accommodations. Doral is not one of them--definitely not somewhere you would stay if visiting Miami.

On top of that, the Trump Doral circa 1960 is a dated old golf club, existing on Deutsche Bank loans, that is in desperate need of a cash infusion.

The President of the United States used an international summit to market his golf resort. And you guys wonder why he's not respected overseas.

You've elected a time-share salesman.
