The WH Official Twitter Account Just Promoted One Of Trump’s Most Financially Struggling Golf Courses
Donald Trump announced on Monday that he will be hosting next year’s G7 summit at his financially struggling Trump National Doral Miami golf course.
The announcement was shared on the White House’s official Twitter account.
Even though Trump claimed during his press conference at the G7 that he had not finalized any plans to use the club as the location of the G7 meeting, the White House Twitter account posted a video of Trump touting the club’s benefits and described it as “Trump [sharing] the location of the next G7 summit, hosted by the United States,” which seemingly indicates that Trump is planning to make it the official meeting location.

It’s no coincidence that Trump is choosing his Doral golf club as the destination for next year’s summit. His club has been struggling financially since he announced his presidential run in 2015.
According to The Washington Post, the club’s net operating income fell by a whopping 69 percent between 2015 and 2017, and one tax consultant working on behalf of the Trump Organization has admitted that its income is down because of Trump’s negative reputation.
If this isn’t a conflict of interest, then what is?
