On Monday, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) admitted that it was a “bad look” for President Donald Trump to call for hosting the next annual G7 summit at the Trump National Doral golf resort in Miami, Florida:

But prior to Trump deciding to pull out of hosting the event at Doral, Rubio spent days passionately defending the choice of venue.

“I understand the arguments others are going to make about whether it’s lining his pocket at this event and so forth, but as a Floridian, you know, I think it’s good for Florida to have that event,” he was reported as saying in the Washington Post on Friday.

Indeed, Rubio was even suggesting to reporters that Trump should pick Doral for the G7 in August, long before he made the announcement. “It’s down the street – not far from where I live. It’s in Florida, I think it’s a great idea … I want us to have as many events down there as we can,” said Rubio in one exchange.

Now, he is one of the last people in his own party to admit that it was a bad move.

US President Donald Trump will not attend next week's UN General Assembly gathering in person, his chief of staff told journalists aboard Air Force One Thursday, according to a pool report.

The decision marks an about-face for Trump, who last month said he wanted to deliver his speech in the General Assembly hall in New York, even if other world leaders are staying away due to the coronavirus pandemic.

White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows ended the debate once and for all, telling reporters en route to Wisconsin, where Trump was to hold a campaign rally, that the president would not physically attend the General Assembly's 75th session, which will take place mainly by videoconference due to the health crisis.
