Trump confirms he will host G-7 meeting at Camp David after his first pick, Trump National Doral Miami, drew widespread criticism
The United States is slated to host the Group of Seven meeting in 2020, and Trump had announced that he’d chosen his Florida golf resort after a supposed search for properties yielded nothing better. Criticism of the decision was swift, even from within his own party, and Trump gave in to the pressure to reverse course.
“We’re going to do it at Camp David and we’ll be doing some special things at Camp David,” Trump said. “It’s nearby, it’s close. We’re going to give really great access to the press, you’ll have great access. And we’ll have a little bit of a Washington deliverance. But it will be at Camp David, which is a place people like.”
