What a circus.

"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 tweeted. "We will begin the search for another site, including the possibility of Camp David, immediately."

Camp David? Well there's thought. Isn't that what it's for?

Following widespread bipartisan criticism, President Donald Trump said Saturday his Doral resort in Florida would not host next year's Group of Seven summit of world leaders after all.

"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 tweeted. "We will begin the search for another site, including the possibility of Camp David, immediately."

Camp David? Gee, a site that was created for the purpose and which has hosted numerous historic meetings in the past! And the government already owns it Imagine! Who knew?

Camp David? Will all these world leaders really want to sleep in tents? And David? Jews taking over the world

Who were the mushroom holsters puking out the utterly lame and false justification that Doral was the cheapest option?

They wouldn't try and deflect for Trump by finding fault with camp David would they?

Especially not an independant that didnt vote for Trump.

Apparently they did in 2012 when they had the G8 at Camp David.

I suspect that some powerful (Senate???) Republicans informed Trump that holding the G7 at any of his properties would be a 'red-line-in-the-sand', past which there would be no guarantees.

or maybe another G7 member expressed disinterest. I mean, he's been on such great terms with them, why would that be the case?

Reality: Following widespread bipartisan criticism,

Trump: "Based on both Media & Democrat Crazed and Irrational Hostility..." he tweeted.

This is how Donald Trump fuel hate and anger. He's dividing this nation like no other.

U.S. Republican Senators are puppets-on-a-string. They dance to whatever song Trump is singing ~ on a moment to moment basis. I wouldn't count on any of them to step out of line over this G-7 flap. They're just one tweet from becoming cord-wood as it is.

This sudden about-face on Trump's part sounds more like something Ivanka would have a hand in. She's the only one who seems to have that kind of clout.

I love the title of the bill, "Thug Act."

Usually thuggish bills are given euphemistic titles like "Patriot Act."

That would be great if the bill can be enforced ex post facto.

Then it can be used to root out Democrat corruption. Especially the Clintons.

There are so many parts of this story to love. Trump has said he doesn't like Camp David because it's too "rustic." A naturally beautiful setting is not his thing. Trump's tastes lie somewhere between Liberace and Saddam Hussein. The fact that he is now stuck going to a plane he hates and he doesn't get to line his pockets a little more makes me smile.

I have known a few guys that served on the security team at Camp David. The quarters there are not expansive. Maybe room for two to three hundred. If they trim down the staffs of the G7 they shouldn't have much of a problem. One nice thing, the press will be in a bubble. Access is strictly controlled with Marines with automatic weapons on the perimeter and gobs of Secret Service within.

You may have noticed NY is a rather diverse place. It's not full of Trump clones.

There's enough truth to the bedbugs issue that they probably told him Doral was unacceptable.

"What would you expect for a guy from New York City?"

You clearly don't know anything about NYC or who we are. Trump is emblematic of NYC only if he were the only person who lived here. It's kind of like thinking you know what physicists are like from watching Bug Bang Theory.

#21 | Posted by Hagbard_Celine All the guys I knew in the Army that were actually from NYC,a rare population, hated being in the field. Hated the bugs, mud and bush. Hated the heat, cold and wet. These guys were not inclined to "embrace the suck". Hell, they measured distance in "blocks". Hated the "hickvilles" they lived in while in the Army, considered anyone not from a urban center as stupid. Adaptability was not their strong point.

He wins either way, the reservations for G7 were pre-paid and non-refundable.

Noticing that for the 100th time Trump had to be shamed into doing the right thing is not whining.

I'm sure the place was booked solid in the 16 hours the thought was out there.

"Democratic Reps. Lois Frankel (Fla.), Bennie Thompson (Miss.) and Steve Cohen (Tenn.) introduced the Trump's Heist Undermines the G-7 (THUG) Act after acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney told reporters Thursday that the Trump resort near Miami will host the annual summit of world leaders June 10-12."

One of the greatest acts of political theater ever.... calling it the THUG Act. These guys should be an award. Brilliant!

He promised it would be "at cost". If you don't use the reservation, how would it "cost" you anything?

Are you *gasp* saying he was LYING???? Perish the thought. Conservatives would NEVER lie.

The issue about prepaying for reservations, which are subsequently never used, is not all that unusual at Trump resort properties, particularly when it comes to reservations made by foreign government agencies and large corporations, which has lead some people to speculate that this could be considered a way of 'laundering' what in essence are bribes being paid to the President of the United States. If these rooms are paid for and not used, Trump would be getting the money, while the costs to his organization would be minimal. And if they knew what was going on, there would be nothing to prevent the resort's management from renting those 'reserved' rooms anyway knowing that they were never going to be used by the entity/individual who made the original prepaid reservations, thus increasing their revenues even more:
