President Trump announced on Twitter over the weekend thaT he'd no longer host next year's G-7 summit at his Doral resort in Miami, but doubled down on defending the decision amid bipartisan backlash. Trump's tweet in part "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." Let me point out again that the backlash was bipartisan,. Why? Because throughout his presidency, Trump has faced allegations that he's using his office to enrich his own business. He should have seen this coming. Arguing that it saves taxpayers money holds little weight because, honestly, when has ANYONE, Republican, Democrat or Indy REALLY cared about saving our tax dollars? Who is gonna buy THAT defense? Even if Doral wouldn't profit, it would have benefited from tons of free adverstising in news coverage alone. Bad optics. As bad as President Obama playing golf on Martha's Vineyard after addressing the gruesome beheading of journalist James Foley by Islamic militants? Of course not. You'd have to go a LONG way to beat that insensitive decision....but BAD opyics none the less.
