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.
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."
