What blows my mind is the left would think instead of hosting it at a place where Trump personally knows is a good spot, good rates, good security...they would rather him stay at a motel.

It's a bad look for Trump, both domestically and especially internationally. Even if his motives were as pure as he claims, it's a bad idea because it makes him look like he's abusing his office. And doing so at G7--on the world stage. Even if one motive for the choice was to troll the leftist media, it's still a very bad idea.

Naturally, if a Democrat did similar it would be smoothed over in the media. But their hypocrisy does not make this a smart move by Trump.

Are we conservatives going to be hypocrites, too? Or are we going to call a spade a spade?

Article says that the resort is hosting the event at cost, so no money is being made. It'll be cheaper on the taxpayer, and Trump will have control over the property and can exclude any protesters or other troublemakers.

The fake news networks are worried that they might not be allowed inside the resort.

Thank you. I scanned the article but somehow missed that (even though it's right at the beginning ).

I doubt he'll get much credit for that in major media.

Well the Secret Service knows that venue well so it'll be cheaper if they use it. Plus as others have stated, it can be protected easier. If in fact, they offered cut-rate prices, the resort isn't go to make much money.

But I suppose he could have chosen Camp David or someplace like that though that gets very expensive. I know a Marine that was stationed there and he has finally started talking about that duty. It was expensive to host the POTUS and a group of people there.

Too funny! Rub it in their face a little. But, note that they are doing it at cost rather than for profit. There's a big savings there, but that's of no concern to the left. Heaven forbid saving the tax payers a few bucks..

You guys will really just forgive him anything.

Seriously, the President is going to host world leaders at a property he owns, this property will bill the world leaders, and he will profit from it.

I get that he is messing with the left.
But, he is also proving to so many that people will no longer stand up for right and wrong.

Your so weak.

Did you read the article? Or this thread? Or miss the part where it said they're hosting the event at cost? I missed it initially. And that's what actually still concerns me... I think a LOT of people will miss that and think Trump is just profiteering on the presidency.

His motives may be good, but if I had been him, I'd have done almost ANYTHING to avoid hosting it at my resort. I'd only host it there as a last resort (hoho! See what I did there?)

You must have missed my post above yours. He's doing it for "cost". No profit involved..

You guys are amazing.

COST....Thats the talking point your going to hang your hat on.

So, the resort is open during that time, and the market would naturally get people to come and stay or not come and stay, based on you know the market. Like conservatives want.

But instead, the President who owns the property instead takes taxpayers dollars to host an international event at his privately owned property. Charging whatever he is going to charge people, forcing them to stay at his property. Forcing the US government to pay for upgrades that come with hosting heads of state.

George W Bush came to my town once, and the amounts of work we had to do to host him was amazing, and super costly. You are paying for these upgrades.

Seriously, cost, thats your defense.

What if President Obama or Bill Clinton owned a hotel and did the same thing? Tell me how that would be fine.

Oh wait, its the sticking it to the libs position.

There are dozens and dozens of 5 star resorts in this country that could host this event, and President Trump could have chosen any of them. Instead he chose HIS property. And you all go out of your way to apologize for him.

You are not patriots. You are lapdogs.

It will all depend on what "hosting at cost" ends up meaning. Does it also cover the needed improvements to host this thing? Trump and team have to know this will be massively scrutinized.

We'll see. I'm reserving judgment until all the facts are in.

Well for one, Obama isn't smart enough because he's never had a REAL job

Bill Clinton would have let Jeffrey Epstein run it, because it's really, really been a long time since he's had a real job either


Don't forget, Trump donates his Presidential salary, which no other POTUS has ever done and he also paid for his first campaign out of his own pocket and not on the tax payer dime

Holding a G-7 Conference at COST really hits the balance sheets hard! In fact being as it comes out of the gross profit, it's not likely the facility will even make a profit for the fiscal year. In other words, he certainly won't profit at all

Even though I support Trump and WILL vote for him again, I don't think this is good sense..even at cost.

You know as well as I, the little fact of "at cost" will be left out of most on line news channels and the MSM reporting therefore will be viewed as profiteering.

Camp David would've been my recommendation. Known property, so secret service and other security is aware and knowledgeable, it represents the USA/.gov, and it is staffed with service members and .gov people.

edit: I will enjoy the exploding heads!!!

Hmmmm..... nope. Hoover and Kennedy donated their salaries to charity.


Washington refused to take a salary but was later persuaded to, arguing that a person without money might be reluctant to become president because of the example Washington would set.

Great choice.
President Trump is so worried about money that he donates his salary to charity.
