    Following widespread bipartisan criticism, President Donald Trump said Saturday his Doral resort in Florida would not host next year's Group of Seven summit of world leaders after all. "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," he tweeted. "We will begin the search for another site, including the possibility of Camp David, immediately." The president had been under fire for the choice, announced Thursday by acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney, because it could ultimately benefit him financially....

    President Trump announced Saturday night that his administration will no longer consider his personal resort in Doral, Fla., to host the 2020 G-7 summit, and suggested he might consider Camp David presidential retreat in Maryland instead. “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,” the president tweeted. “We will begin the search for another site, including the possibility of Camp David, immediately. Thank you!” The announcement followed earlier tweets in which he said he thought he “was doing something very...

    White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney announced during a White House press briefing that the 2020 G7 summit will be held at Trump National in Doral, Florida, from June 10-12. "We used the same set of criteria that previous administrations have used," Mulvaney said. He said Doral was "far and away the best physical facility for this meeting." President Donald Trump is sure to receive criticism and will face questions about whether he stands to profit financially from the large summit. Trump has received such criticism in the past for hosting foreign leaders, including China's President Xi Jinping,...
  • Trump's G-7 Press Conference Stands in Contrast to His Twitter Rants

    VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- At the conclusion of the annual Group of Seven summit in Biarritz, France, U.S. President Donald Trump emerged on the world stage for a joint press conference with the summit host, French President Emmanuel Macron. It was arguably the best performance of Trump's presidency. It certainly bore little resemblance to Trump's stream-of-consciousness rants on Twitter in which he criticizes TV shows and the "fake and disgusting news," bad-mouths countries and former staffers, promotes conspiracy theories and complains about his approval ratings. Trump should hold more of these types of press conferences and spend less time on...

    The Yellow Vests on the streets of Paris again for Week 41 of protests and at other locations across the country.. The procession stepping off at around 215 pm Paris time, 815 am Eastern US time. But much attention focused on the southwest of France where the kind of globalization the Yellow Vests movement protests against is on full display this weekend at the G7 summit. Coordinated 'green' policies like President Emmanuel Macron's obsession with the wildfires in the Amazon remind us of Macron's domestic agenda of gasoline taxes in the name of 'green' that helped to spark the Yellow...

    During a joint press conference with French President Emmanuel Macron, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's eyebrow seems to slide down his face. It could have been a lighting issue, or the camera angle, but as Trudeau speaks, it seems like his dark eyebrow has slipped down and is in danger of hitting him in the eye.

    Anti-Trump Trudeau will be too busy trying to save his own hide to do Obama’s dirty work for him According to his official itinerary, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is taking a ‘personal’ day off today, and fun that it’s been, you can bet the farm that it’s not to find a more reliable glue to make his eyebrows stick. Trudeau, who blew a whopping 600-million Canadian taxpayer dollars creating a still raging firestorm at the weekend’s G-7 summit in rural Quebec, is more than likely looking for ways to cover the deceit of what White House Trade Advisor Peter...

    Everyone should be flexible and willing to bend, as life requires growth and change. President Trump surprised everyone at the G7 Summit in Canada by suggesting a radical change to the International trading system. He suggested that all tariffs, trade barriers, and Industrial subsidies should be dropped in order to facilitate free trade. “No tariffs, no barriers, that’s the way it should be,” Trump said. “And no subsides, I even said not tariffs.” Of course, it shocked everyone, as this comes after Trump decided to impose large tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from the European Union, Canada, and Mexico....

    “I am in agreement with President Trump,” Mr. Conte tweeted Friday. “Russia should reenter the G8. It is in everyone’s best interests.” Conte’s comment followed remarks by President Trump earlier on Friday regarding Russia’s role in the group of leading industrialized nations (G7). “With that being said, Russia should be in this meeting,” Trump said of the G7 summit, which begins Friday in Quebec. “Why are we having a meeting without Russia being in the meeting?” “Whether you like it or not, and it may not be politically correct, but we have a world to run,” Trump said. “And in...

The White House said Trump would depart mid-morning on Saturday, skipping sessions on climate change and the environment. An aide will take his place, the White House said.

    It looked more like a scene out of the “The Sound of Music” in Austria than the G7 Summit in Germany. In between family photos with leaders at the G7 Summit, cameras caught German Chancellor Angela Merkel animatedly speaking with a relaxed President Obama. The photo of Merkel with her arms outstretched prompted comparisons to Julie Andrews’ famous twirling scene in the Austrian Alps in “The Sound of Music.”

    WASHINGTON - The International Monetary Fund warned Saturday that debt-ridden banks were pushing the global financial system to the brink of meltdown and rich nations had so far failed to restore confidence. President Bush appealed for patience as world leaders raced to stabilize financial markets and avert the deepest global recession in decades, but the 185-nation IMF said more steps would be needed in the coming months. "Intensifying solvency concerns about a number of the largest U.S.-based and European financial institutions have pushed the global financial system to the brink of systemic meltdown," IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn said.
