President Donald Trump has confirmed that he will likely hold next years G7 summit at his struggling Doral, Florida, golf resort — and NBC News reported that he plans to invite Russian president Vladimir Putin.

The president has floated the idea of propping up the underperforming resort, which has lost 69 percent of its income since 2015, by holding the next international summit at his prized property.

That means Trump would personally profit from the meeting, which the U.S. had already been scheduled to host — but NBC’s Shannon Pettypiece reported that he may have another ulterior motive.

“The next year G7 summit is in the U.S.,” she said. “The U.S. hosts it, and he said today that he’s looking at having it at his Doral golf course in Miami. He went on and on about what a great location that would be.”

“Another thing to note,” she added, “as the host he would be able to invite Vladimir Putin as a special guest, even if Putin is not a member. So certainly that is something we could look forward to potentially next year at this time.”

Senate Dems blast ‘corrupt’ nomination of Amy Coney Barrett: ‘This entire process is illegitimate’

Published

President Donald Trump on Saturday nominated Judge Amy Coney Barrett to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the United States Supreme Court -- and Democrats were livid.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) linked the nomination to the Affordable Care Act and the COVID-19 pandemic.

"A vote for Judge Amy Coney Barrett is a vote to eliminate health care for millions in the middle of a pandemic," Schumer wrote. "Democrats are fighting for Americans' health care."

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), the ranking member on the Senate Judiciary Committee, ripped the nomination for coming so close to the election.
