“A bow to reality”: Trump reverses decision to host G7 at his own resort

Yesterday evening Donald Trump succumbed to pressure and reversed a decision to host next year’s G7 summit at his own Trump National Doral Golf Club in Miami. As Trump feels the heat of an impeachment inquiry into his Ukraine dealings, the move will stop another showdown with political opponents over his use of the presidential office for personal profit and self-dealing. Noah Bookbinder, executive director of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, told the AP that Trump’s reversal was “a bow to reality.” And indeed, lawmakers were getting real about the president’s hosting plans.
