The G7 Summit May Meet at Trump’s Doral Golf Club

The G7 Summit May Meet at Trump's Doral Golf Club

President Trump wants the 2020 G7 meeting to take place at the Trump National Doral resort in Florida. He might think the “G” stands for “golf,” but it’s the Group of Seven finance summit. Speaking of finance, the Doral could use the money. During the Trump presidency its net operating income fell 69%. And the Doral’s debts are international, since it was financed through loans from Deutsche Bank. Note to finance ministers: the swimming pools haven’t been inspected in the past year.
