….Therefore, 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. We will begin the search for another site, including the possibility of Camp David, immediately. Thank you!

I’m really disappointed in the Donald on this one. He really should have known that the left would go bat shit crazy and that Doral never had a chance of hosting the G-7. It might have been a great idea and the facility certainly would have been excellent but it just wasn’t going to fly.
It’s nice to think that President Trump is playing 4-D chess all of the time but this one was a swing and a huge miss in my view. I simply don’t know what he was thinking.
The left bots are all over the “emoluments clause” and that it’s “illegal” for President Trump to suggest Doral in the first place.
Since virtually everyone on the left seems to be an expert on the “emoluments clause,” I suppose we should read it together:
No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.
ARTICLE I, SECTION 9, CLAUSE 8
And let’s go ahead and get the definition of emolument since it’s certainly not a word you use in daily language unless, of course, you’re CNN.
An emolument is a “a salary, fee, or profit from employment or office.”
Sorry, Mr. President, but no matter how you cut it, Doral was never going to pass muster particular from the Left that still believes Putin put you in office.
As a bit of aside, I suppose a bill could have been written that would give the location explicit Congressional approval but there isn’t a snowball’s chance of getting it through. I was going to say it would be a waste of time but no more so than what the Democrats are doing anyway so that would be a wash.
I guess it’s up to us to help President Trump select a location and I can think of only one suitable location —
“Boys and Girls! We’re going to Disney World in Orlando!”
